CRIME REVIEW: A Kate Shugak Investigation 4: A Cold Blooded Business - Dana Stabenow

Release Date: 01/02/13
Publisher:  Head of Zeus


KATE SHUGAK is a native Aleut working as a private investigator in Alaska. She's 5 foot 1 inch tall, carries a scar that runs from ear to ear across her throat and owns half-wolf, half-husky dog named Mutt. Resourceful, strong-willed, defiant, Kate is tougher than your average heroine - and she needs to be to survive the worst the Alaskan wilds can throw at her. A COLD BLOODED BUSINESS. It's March. Someone is selling drugs to the employees of a Prudhoe Bay oil field company, and the company hires Kate to go undercover and apprehend the dealer. But coke isn't the only illegal substance being dealt...


Having felt a little cheated with the last book by Dana, I was hoping that this outing would take me back more along the lines of the original outing rather than the last. Luckily for me this was exactly what I got with new characters alongside some old favourites which when backed with a love story, cracking action and of course a lead character that’s been through the wars all round made this a book that I enjoyed.

Add to the mix an author who plays for keeps which when added to some heart stopping moments within the text all round gives you a story that will keep you reading long into the night.
