Whisper to the BloodAudiobook CD - 2009
The inhabitants of Niniltna, inside Alaska's largest national park, are uneasy about the gold-mining company buying up tracts of land around the park, an unease shared by P.I. Kate Shugak as she probes the killings of a long-time mine opponent and a popular ski champion turned company spokesperson, attacks on local snow mobilers, and the still-open homicide of Louis Deem. Simultaneous.
In this chilling thriller, set in Alaska, New York Times bestseller Stabenow returns to her enormously popular Kate Shugak series.
Inside Alaska's biggest national park, surrounding the town of Niniltna, a gold mining company has started buying up land. The residents of the Park, are uneasy. "But gold is up to nine hundred dollars an ounce," is the refrain of Talia Macleod, the popular Alaskan skiing champ the company hired to improve their relations with Alaskans. And she promises much needed jobs to the locals.
But before she can make her way to every village in the area to make her case at town meetings and village breakfasts, there are two murders—one a long-standing mine opponent, and Ms. Macleod herself. Between that and a series of attacks on snow mobilers up the Kanuyaq River, not to mention the still-open homicide of Park villain Louis Deem last year, part-time P.I. and newly elected chairman of the Niniltna Native Association Kate Shugak has her hands very much full.
The inhabitants of Niniltna are uneasy about the gold-mining company buying up tracts of land nearby, an unease shared by P.I. Kate Shugak as she probes the killings of a mine opponent and a popular ski champion-turned-company spokesperson.
