Alaska state trooper Liam Campbell is ensnared in a tangled net of violence and evil secrets when he investigates a string of murders at a fishing village.

Blackwell North Amer
Not so long ago, Sergeant Liam Campbell had it all - a wife, a son, a good job on the fast track to the top. And then he lost it all: disgraced, demoted, and banished to the remote posting of Newenham, on the shores of Bristol Bay. But slowly he's beginning to put his life together again - shaking off the shadow of his disgrace and working his way back into the world with a succession of solved cases. His new assistant, Trooper Diana Prince, is working out well. He's even getting the hang of the unwritten social code of the local native population. And his on-again, off-again relationship with Wyanet Chouinard is on-again, this time hopefully for good.
But no quiet spell lasts forever. First, the postmistress of a nearby town is found murdered. Odds are it was a robbery gone wrong, but there are no witnesses, no suspects, and little chance of finding the killer. Then, a prospector is shot dead on his remote gold site, his wife missing. Odds are his wifeisolated and exasperated - took out her frustrations with a gun.
But Liam doesn't trust the odds when it comes to murder. And when a third body turns up, Liam uncovers a hidden pattern - a pattern that will take him back twenty years, into the files his predecessor left behind ... and the wounds that not even time can heal. As the trail stretches from town to town, from victim to victim, he will learn more than he ever wanted to know ... and the next body he finds may be one too close to home.

When this book arrived from the bookmobile, I realized I'd read it when it first came out. Usually Stabenow's mysteries, however the horror of the subject matter, aren't too horrible to read. This one, however, was beyond my tolerance level, and I just couldn't bring myself to reread it. It does have all Stabenow's trademark virtues: her detective's attractions, well-drawn continuing characters, fast pacing, gorgeous writing, Alaska's beauty. If your stomach is stronger than mine, you may enjoy it more than I did.
