Publisher's Summary

It's a crisp, snowless October in The Park. The root cellar is full, the cordwood is stacked, the oil drums are filled and there’s a freshly-butchered moose in her cache, but Kate Shugak must leave her cabin and head into the chaos of Anchorage, where the Alaska Federation of Natives’ annual convention is being held. Why? Because board members of the Niniltna Native Association have been dying...board members who just happened to oppose a lucrative new development project. If it’s just a coincidence, perhaps Kate will find nothing, but this is Alaska - politics and profit are constantly at odds with conservation and traditional practices, and anyone looking too closely is likely to discover something unsavory.

Love these books!

Found this writer very later in this series but I absolutely love them. The narrator is wonderful and the stories are interesting and wonderfully woven....I find myself feeling like I'm actually there and just watching from the sidelines!

The title says it all

A mystery in the city but with deep emotion and information about cultural pride. Dana Stabenaugh communicates these value with good information and love.

Dana Stabenow hasn't disappointed me yet!

Kate, as usual, is great and I enjoy her growing relationship with Jack and the kid.

Kate Shaguk Stalker and Identity Thief!

Although I still like Kate and love the series' exploration of Alaskan culture I am frustrated by Kate's behavior in this book. She stole an identity, stole money, and acted as a stalker. I suspend my belief often while reading because I am a big fan of mysteries and they often require it. But in this case the crimes were not committed while solving a crime... they were planned and premeditated acts. It really concerned me that these acts were justified by Kate to herself and to Jack, and justified by the author to the reader.

Meowww

Stabenow, again, looks at an Alaskan issue: native politics this time. The book further demonstrates the author's sense of humor and plays incidentally on previous stories. In one chapter, Kate goes to Nordstom's for a dress up outfit and I almost busted a gut. Mutt plays a great role. As an aside from the plot line, Kate's lover Jack and his son are threatened by Jack's ex-wife. I couldn't wait for Kate's retribution to play out..."mmeeeeoooowww."

A great series Start with book 1 and move through

Would you listen to Blood Will Tell again? Why?

Yes it is well written ,the characters are interesting and real. The information on Alaska is wonderful

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I did not see the ending coming

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but work got in the way so i could not

Any additional comments?

I have read the entire series in book or by listening and want Dana Stabenow to write another chapter for her character in a new book. the ending in the latest book has left me wondering about the character Kate and her loyal companion

Never disappoints...

This must be my 10th time reading/listening to Dana Stabenow's Kate Shugak series and as soon as I'm through, I'll start my 10th time on the Liam Campbell series.

Ms. Stabenow is an incredible storyteller, and in her writing, I find myself standing next to Kate as the story unfolds. I'm immersed into a rich culture, I can see Kate's determination to find the truth, and I find that even after the 10th time, I can't stop reading or listening to the audiobook until the story is finished.

Thank you Ms. Stabenow!
