Fresh Meat: Bad Blood by Dana Stabenow

Bad Blood by Dana StabenowBad Blood by Dana Stabenow is the 20th in the Alaskan series of Kate Shugak mysteries (available February 25, 2013).

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.
