'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 *
