New York Times bestselling author Dana Stabenow's latest finds Kate Shugak entangled in a bitter tribal rivalry and murder

One hundred years of bad blood between the Alaskan villages of Kushtaka and Kuskulana come to a boil when the body of a young Kushtaka ne'er-do-well is found wedged in a fish wheel. Sergeant Jim Chopin's prime suspect is a Kuskulana man who is already in trouble in both villages for falling in love across the river. But when the suspect disappears, members of both tribes refuse to speak to Jim. When a second murder that looks suspiciously like payback occurs, Jim has no choice but to call in Kate Shugak for help. This time, though, her Park relationships may not be enough to sort out the truth hidden in the tales of tragedy and revenge.

Book Excerpts

One
 

Two villages, where two rivers meet.
A geologic age before the runoff from Alaskan Glacier high up in the Quilak Mountains chewed through a granite ridge to form a narrow canyon fifteen miles long.
A millennium before, a massive earthquake exacerbated a fault in the ridge. Half of it cracked and slid off to the southwest. It left behind a V-shaped wedge between the confluence of two watercourses, which would one day be named Gruening River on the south side and Cataract Creek on the north.
The tip of the vee pointed due west.

Praise for Bad Blood

Praise for Bad Blood

“Long-time devotees of this popular series will devour the book in a single sitting, and if there happen to be any fans of Alaska-set mystery fiction—books by John Straley, for example, or Sue Henry—who have not yet made the acquaintance of Kate Shugak, they should change that sooner rather than later.”
Booklist (starred review)

“Stabenow’s intriguing characters and fascinating setting bring this mystery to life, but her narrative voice wins Bad Blood a Top Pick. She establishes the histories of the two communities featured in the story with an irony-tinged commentary that carries the reader right into the heart of the Alaskan wilderness.”
RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick)

“To her usual atmospheric detection, Stabenow adds more than a hint of Romeo and Juliet, or the Hatfields and the McCoys.”
Kirkus Reviews
