Description

It is New Year's Eve, nearly six weeks into an off-and-on blizzard that has locked Alaska down, effectively cutting it off from the outside world. But now there are reports of a plane down in the Quilak mountains. With the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board-responsible for investigating aviation incidents) unable to reach the crash site, ex-trooper Jim Chopin is pulled out of retirement to try to identify the aircraft, collect the corpses, and determine why no flight has been reported missing. But Jim discovers survivors: two children who don't speak a word of English. Meanwhile, PI Kate Shugak receives an unexpected and unwelcome accusation from beyond the grave, a charge that could change the face of the Park forever.

Professional reviews

"It's a trifecta! Good narration, good writing, and good plot are all part of this audiobook, the 22nd entry in the renowned Kate Shugak crime series, which takes place in Alaska. The story opens with two young children surviving a plane crash and then takes on some heavy topics--child sexual abuse, immigration, racism, and drug dealing. Happily, it's not all gloom, and the hard stuff is leavened by humor elsewhere. The listener can hear the smile lurking behind Gavin's words when Stabenow's story calls for it. Gavin also does children's voices without sounding infantile, handles accents well, and makes gender differences clear with just a slight change in pitch. All in all, a terrific performance in service of a terrific story. G.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
