I love to read the Kate Shugak mystery series by Dana Stabenow. I have been reading it since 1999 after Allison and I took a trip to Alaska. This particular series is about Kate who is an investigator in Alaska. I will not give away anything about the books except to say Dana has written 20 of them in the Kate series and they always keep you on the edge of your seat. The only thing I will say is that I just finished Bad Blood, the 20th book and I like other Kate fans am in shock at the cliffhanger at the end. Holy Cow!! Dana.....please, please please hurry and finish Kate #21. If you have not read any of Dana's books the Kate series starts with A Cold Day For Murder. You will not be disappointed. Dana has written the Liam Campbell series, also about Alaska, Star Svensdotter science fiction series and Blindfold Game and Prepared for Rage, political intrigue. This month her newest series is beginning, Silk and Song, the first in a three book series about Marco Polo's granddaughter and the Silk Road. While I look forward to reading Silk and Song I am chomping at the bit to read the next Kate book. Hurry Dana hurry. I will read Silk and Song but I may have to start at Kate #1 and read through all 20 again if you keep me waiting on #21.
