I really like this one. Liam Campbell, Alaska State Police; continues to grow on me. Very warm and human mystery.
An excellent, fast-paced mystery and a fairly satisfying ending to Dana Stabenow's Liam Campbell series. This book could stand alone, but I'd advise reading the 3 previous books in the series (in order) before reading this. Stabenow always leaves me wanting more, and although this book could end the series, I hope she'll write more about Liam and Wyanet, his very independent lady pilot girlfriend.
A severed arm clutching a gold coin leads to a wrecked WWII plane.
Mystery and set in Alaska, which is always interesting to read about
I give all of Stabenow's books 4 1/2 stars.I like the way she writes. Liam--state tooper--is an interesting character. This story leaves Liam hunting for the killer of a postmaster--an older woman---and it does not stand there.Whether you are reading about Kate or Liam, the stories are more in tence if you read them as written.Thay can stand alone.
"A string of recent successes has put Liam back on the fast track - to Anchorage.
But he's started making a life for himself in Newenham. He has friends, and the beginnings - with pilot Wyanet Chouinard and her foster son - of a new family."
But before he has time to focus on questions about his future, the grisly discovery of a dismembered hand leads Liam to the site of a crashed World War II army plane - frozen precariously in a calving glacier. Stretching back more than sixty years, the case will pit Liam against his father, Colonel Charles Bradley Campbell of the United States Air Force, whose very presence makes Liam question what secrets the glacier holds - and who exactly was on that ill-fated flight.
