Liam Cooper had it all. He loved his job as a sergeant with the Alaska State Troopers, was happily married and had a child, who he adored. However, his personal collapsed when a DUI killed his wife and son, and his career fell apart not long after that. He becomes an alcoholic in a failed attempt to stop the pain.
However, Liam gets an opportunity to start anew when he is assigned to serve as the state trooper at the fishing city of Newenham. When his plane lands, Liam is greeted with his first case: the beheaded corpse of Bob DeCreft lying on the tarmac as a nearby propeller whirls. With Bob's years of experience and his impeccable safety record, Liam wonders if foul play has occurred. Making matters more difficult for Liam is seeing for the first time in years the first woman he ever loved (and lost), Wy Chouinard, a pilot and peer of the deceased.
FIRE AND ICE is a remarkable regional police procedural that makes the reader believe that they are traveling over the rural areas of Alaska. The story line is crisp and action-packed as Liam literally take his first step from the plane into a murder mystery that impacts the woman he still deeply loves. The characters are well drawn and likable, but fans of the Kate Shugak series already expect that from talented Dana Stabenow. Readers will want more works starring Trooper Campbell and his superb support cast in their remote, often time feral locale.

I hesitated to read "Fire and Ice," because I am such a fan of Kate Shugak's that I knew it would have to be a disappointment. Boy, was I mistaken! Kate's rough edge has been replaced by humorous eccentricity from the people Liam meets, but the same fast-paced plot and love of Alaska make this book a wonderful read in its own right. I laughed out loud in spots, and I hated to finish it--it was that good. There's no need to debate "better then" or "less than" Stanbanow's other series. This is a very good read, and I can hardly wait for the next one in this new series.

If you are looking for a book to keep you amused on a 3 hour plane journey you could do a lot worse, but it isn't a high flyer. As a crime novel it is an undemanding read, with a straightforward plot whose ending will come as no surprise - but then you probably don't want anything heavier whilst wrestling with your in-flight snack. The most interesting bit is trying to work out who you would cast as Liam in a film or TV version - apart from Mel Gibson, as that would be cheating (see the dedication). Not being a great fan of coy references to the supernatural I find the shaman/raven business detracts rather than enhances, but each to their own.... Would I read the next in the series (on the plane home, perhaps)? Yes, but only if it is free - this is not a series I would buy.

I liked this book a lot. The mystery was good, the descriptions of Alaska evocative, and the characters lively. I prefer Liam to Kate Shugak, who I've always found to be a bit uptight.

I knew little about Alaska but this is a really good mystery and I enjoyed the setting and learning about the people of Alaska. I guessed the end as we got there but was left wanting to know what happened next. It kept me hooked and was certainly a page turner.

Stabenow came to Liam Campbell after seven Kate Shugak novels - and the sense of liberation is palpable. I felt something similar after ploughing through two very stodgy books in translation.
To describe this story as a 'romp' is to celebrate its strengths and - politely - to indicate its limitations. The mystery (such as it is) is secondary to the characters, and the characters are secondary to the setting. I've no idea whether life in the Alaskan Bush at the end of the last century was anything like this, and I don't care, because the writer brings together such a cast of oddballs and freaks that loved every minute of it. Liam Campbell's visit to the post office (being dragged there by the mayor) is masterpiece of small town comedy.
This is a comedy in the best sense of the word: the insights into human nature are there, but the writer's skill allows them to slide down as easily as one of the burgers at the bar. A treat.
