Loved it! Kate agrees to provide security on an Alaskan political campaign and modern day murders point to origins in the wild old days of the goldrush. Great mystery and nice character development - one of the best in the series.

Native Alaskan detective Kate Shugak signs onto the staff of a political campaign, and finds echoes from the Klondike Gold Rush of 1915. Great stuff.

I didn't like the political aspects of this book. I'm just not a political monster. The main focus is a campaign for the state senate (of Alaska, of course) between a native female newcomer and the male whose held the seat for years. When Anne receives death threats, Kate Shugak is called in as security. It's pretty tame (read boring) until someone ends up dead then it livens up a little. Especially when Jim Chopin and Ethan enter the picture. It's rather interesting because Jim has it bad for Kate but she wants nothing to do with him, or any other male for that matter. There are lots of surprises and the culprit was a real surprise. I did like how Dana Stabenow blended the story of the Dawson Darling into the current political situation.
