Product Description

Review

'For those who like series, mysteries, books with rich, idiosyncratic settings, engaging characters, Strong Women and reasonably hot sex on occasion ... let me recommend Dana Stabenow' Diana Gabaldon.

'A darkly compelling view of life in the Alaskan bush, well laced with lots of gallows humor. Her characters are very believable, the story lines are always suspenseful, and every now and then she lets a truly vile villain be eaten by a grizzley. Who could ask for more?' Sharon Penman.

'Stabenow is blessed with a rich prose style and a fine eye for detail. An outstanding series.' Washington Post.

'One of the strongest voices in crime fiction' Seattle Times.

'An antidote to sugary female sleuths: Kate Shugak, the Aleut private investigator' New York Times.

Product Description

Two crewmen of the crab vessel Avilda are missing—presumed dead—under very suspicious circumstances. The Bering Sea offers ample means and opportunity, but without bodies, a motive, or evidence of foul play, the DA doesn’t have a case. And so, freelancing again for her former employer, Kate Shugak finds herself working undercover in one of Alaska’s most dangerous professions: crab fisherman. It’s an assignment that will take her from the debauchery of Dutch Harbor to the most isolated of the Aleutians, and if the job itself doesn’t kill her, her unsavory crewmates just might.

Third in Stabenow’s Edgar Award-winning series of Alaskan mysteries, Dead in the Water is richly informed by the author’s own upbringing aboard an Alaskan fishing vessel.

4.0 out of 5 stars A first class read. 20 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent story, well-told with an appealing character in Kate. It is also marvellously descriptive of a part of the world quite new to me, and of a way of life barely imaginable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my favourite of the series so far 1 Jan. 2013
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
The third book in the series and whilst this one still kept me going, it was more a book about the people and land than a real mystery bound up within which to be honest is a bit of a problem when that's the key element to which this series is based. Don't get me wrong, the characters are still wonderfully rounded, the descriptiveness of life on a crabbing vessel works well and with the inclusion of a native tradition, its something that does keep you more than interested due to the fact that she brings it all over wonderfully well.

All in a solid enough title but for me, it really doesn't surpass the second outing and whilst I'll continue to read the series, I am a little apprehensive leaving it for a while in case I tend to remember the negative rather than the positive aspects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excitement! 17 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm delighted to have found Dana Stabenow and Kate Shugak, especially as there are so many books in the series. It's a completely different world that's described in the novels but Stabenow's gentle humour and skilful characterization bring it alive. Very well written and entertaining.

Kate is a very feisty, interesting character. Descriptions are excellent and make reading very enjoyable, just the right balance of romance. Dana Stabenow brings her characters to life.
