Once, Kate Shugak was the star investigator of the Anchorage D.A, 's office. Now she's gone back to her Aleut roots in the far Alaska north- where her talent for detection makes her the toughest crime-tracker in that stark and mysterious land.
Two crewmen of the crab vessel Avilda are missing—presumed dead—under very suspicious circumstances. The Bering Sea offers ample means and opportunity, but without bodies, a motive, or evidence of foul play, the DA doesn’t have a case. And so, freelance investigator Kate Shugak finds herself working undercover in one of Alaska’s most dangerous professions: crab fisherman.
The assignment will take her from the debauchery of Dutch Harbor to the most isolated of the Aleutians, and if the job itself doesn’t kill her, her crewmates just might.
Attorney Kate Shugak gets an undercover job working on an Alaskan fishing boat in order to discover why two crew members mysteriously disappeared.
