Description

With Midnight Come Again, Dana Stabenow authored the most ambitious book to date in her acclaimed series of novels about life - and death - in the beautiful but forbidding wilderness of Alaska. Now, with Aleutian p.i. Kate Shugak back on her home turf and beginning to recover from devastating recent events, Stabenow has delivered a daring novel paralleling the lives of her series characters with their ancestors, the settlers of America`s forty-ninth state. In The Singing of the Dead, Kate hires onto the staff of a political campaign to work security for a Native woman running for state senator. The candidate has been receiving anonymous threats, and Kate, who went to college with two of the staffers, is to become her shadow, watching the crowds at rallies and fundraisers. But just as she`s getting started the campaign is rocked by the murder of their staff researcher. In order to track the killer, Kate will have to retrace the researcher`s steps and delve into the past, in particular the grisly murder of a "good-time girl" during the Klondike Gold Rush in 1915. Little can she guess the impact a ninety-year-old unsolved case could have on a modern-day killer. Seamlessly blending past and present, Stabenow`s richly detailed plot and stunningly rendered characters and Alaskan setting ensure that this newest entry in the Kate Shugak series will not disappoint.
