Book 6 of the Kate Shugak series by Dana Stabenow is different from the other books I’ve read in the series. It’s much more political and much less about murder and mayhem, but it’s still good. Although Kate is out of The Park again, at least this time she has Mutt as she attends the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention in Anchorage. She is, of course, only there at the insistence of her formidable grandmother. It’s an opportunity to spend time with Jack and his son Johnny and for the reader to see some of the issues facing Alaska natives. In general, I enjoyed this book a lot and once again, Marguerite Gavin does an excellent job on the performance. I really love listening to her.
