Description

The residents of Alaska's largest national park are stunned by the death of one of their oldest members, eighty-seven-year-old Old Sam Dementieff...Even private investigator Kate Shugak. Sam, a lifelong resident, dubbed the "father" of all of the Park rats—even though he had no children of his own—was especially close to Kate, his niece, but even she is surprised to discover that in his will he's left her everything, including a letter instructing her simply to, "find my father."

Easier said than done, since Sam's father is something of a mystery. An outsider, he disappeared shortly after learning about Sam's existence, taking with him a priceless tribal artifact, a Russian icon. And in the three days after Kate begins her search through Sam's background, she gets threatened—and worse.

The flashbacks from Sam's fascinating life, including scenes from major events in Alaska's colorful history, punctuate a gripping story in which Kate does her best to fulfill Sam's last wish without losing her own life to the people who are following her every move, though what they are searching for Kate doesn't even know.

In Dana Stabenow's breathtaking new novel, Though Not Dead, the eighteenth to feature Kate Shugak, Kate's search for the long-lost family secrets that have been interwoven with the epic history of an unforgiving land leads to an extraordinary treasure hunt with fatal consequences.

        May 30, 2011
        Stabenow's latest Kate Shugak novel finds the intrepid Alaskan PI facing a personal tragedy and its unexpected repercussions. Old Sam, Kate's uncle and surrogate father, has died, leaving her heir to and executor of his estate. Kate has no way of knowing that Old Sam's actions will pull her into a life-threatening mystery whose roots hark back to Alaska in the early 20th century and continue to the present day. Marguerite Gavin gives an excellent reading of Stabenow's prose: she keeps the story moving at an energetic clip, which works especially well with the action sequences. With a nice sense of timing, she brings out the laugh-out-loud humor laced through the book, most notably in the scenes between Kate and her "Aunties," and manages to balance the book's extensive cast of characters, shifting points of view, time frames, and passages of Alaskan history with a bright, engaging performance that keeps the listener tuned in from the introduction to the final chapter. A Minotaur hardcover.

      • content: Marguerite Gavin's performance will make instant fans of those new to the Kate Shugak series. Gavin gives Alaskan Kate the perfect no-nonsense attitude as she and her half-wolf sidekick, Mutt, butt heads with her newest mystery. After Kate's surrogate father, Old Sam, dies, she finds herself enmeshed in a puzzle beginning in his colorful past, including a missing tribal icon, an unpublished Dashiell Hammett manuscript, and Sam's last cryptic request to her: "Find my father." Gavin's Native accents and characters are dignified and truthful. Pronunciations of names like Suulutaq, Niniltna, and Kanuyaq roll trippingly off her tongue. In this 18th Shugak episode, listeners get substantial chunks of Alaskan history while Kate deals with murder, personal attacks, and unsettling revelations. Gavin turns it all into compelling listening. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

        This is the 18th mystery in Edgar Award winner Stabenow's (www.stabenow.com) series centering on Alaska PI Kate Shugak, following "A Night Too Dark"(2010), also available from Macmillan Audio and AudioGO. When Kate's uncle and mentor, "Old Sam," is murdered, Kate inherits most of his belongings, including the cryptic request to "find my father." Along with her half-husky, half-wolf companion, Mutt, Kate sets out to uncover her family's secrets. Through flashbacks of Old Sam's life, Stabenow artfully weaves the history of Alaska and its native people into the story. Series narrator Marguerite Gavin does an excellent job of reading this novel. Her clear and articulate voice brings out the characters' diverse personalities, native accents, and speech patterns. For all Kate Shugak fans. ["Sure to be popular with lovers of the series as well as those who enjoy...novels set in Alaska," read the review of the "New York Times"best-selling Minotaur hc, "LJ"12/10.—Ed.]—Ilka Gordon, Siegal Coll. of Judaic Studies Lib., Cleveland
