A Fatal Thaw - Dana Stabenow
Spring has arrived in The Park. The snow is melting, the birds are singing, the wolves are frolicking… and somewhere, in a lonely cabin along the road to Niniltna, a man’s sanity is breaking. Soon, nine people will be dead, seemingly the victims of a random act of violence—until a routine ballistics test reveals that one of the murders was anything but random. Once again the Anchorage DA’s department must turn to their former investigator, Kate Shugak, to uncover a calculating killer, hiding in plain sight.
The second novel in Stabenow's Edgar Award-wining series of Alaskan mysteries, A Fatal Thaw vividly captures life in America's last frontier, filled with unique hardships, quirks and rewards.
