THE DEAD OF WINTER When a young National Park Ranger disappears during the long Alaskan winter, everyone assumes the cold got him. But when an investigator goes in after him, and never comes out, the weather may not be all that's killing. Or so thinks Kate Shugak. With her Husky-breed Mutt as an ally, she's hunting for answers among the pipeliners, Aleuts, and hardy eccentrics of the rugged American north. But she's heading for thin ice between lies and loyalties ... between justice served and the cold face of murder.
This is #2 in A Kate Shugak Mystery. -- From Amazon.com Product Description
