Reviews about A Cold-Blooded Business (Kate Shugak Mystery) (7):

The oilfields of Alaska's North Slope is the setting for the fourth installment in Dana Stabenow's Kate Shugak series, A COLD-BLOODED BUSINESS. Kate is a native Aleut who is a private investigator and this time she takes on a job that takes her to the oilfields where life is lived under harsh conditions, with employees working in isolated conditions and a hard-partying lifestyle after hours is ignored by management.

Kate is asked to go undercover as an employee for Royal Petroleum to find out who is dealing drugs that have caused several overdoses and a death at RPetCo. Jack, the Anchorage DA, has asked Kate to take this job and for good pay, more money than Kate has seen in a long time. She agrees to take the job and goes to the North Slope of Prudhoe Bay as a driver taking dignitaries on PR tours. Kate finds out soon enough that this is not going to be an easy job. While she is there, there is an archeological dig going on and some Native American artifacts are found which Kate is very interested in and she gets caught up in the findings. This becomes a distraction to her as she goes about her investigation to find the drug dealer.

This is the slowest of the first four in the series for me. Usually I read Stabenow's Shugak novels in two sittings, if not one, but I thought this one dragged on a bit. I enjoyed it, but not until the end did it really pick up and I was on the edge of my seat and turning pages fast. However, the artifacts were of interest and as always, the setting is a major part of the story, and this one was cold and unforgiving. Mutt, Kate's dog, is present as always, and it wouldn't be a Kate Shugak novel without her best canine friend.

I highly recommend this series to mystery lovers and to readers who like the outdoors and especially for those with interests in Alaska and its native culture.

I bought the first book of the series while on a cruise to Alaska. I like sampling local writers' work. I thought the topic uniquely Alaskan, which is what I was looking for. A female author writing about a female character of native descent was also appealing to me. I think the character has already grown old to me by Book #4. The flawed detective that's really good at their job and nothing else is a standard character in crime fiction. Kate is also, by the very nature of her birth, a spokesperson for her "people" and actually too self-sufficient to be a classic detective. She doesn't need the help of her elders, although respectful of them, or the love of her man, who constantly sends her into harm's way without backup. She has no addition accept grease and sugar based food, which apparently has no negative consequences on her stock but trim little body. I keep looking for a character in the book that I can really relate to and haven't found one. I want too many things from this character. I want her man to show true concern for the woman he loves. I want Kate to struggle with her weight and to be quick with the "come-bask" lines. I want the side characters to be interesting enough to have their own series of books (these characters are a serious part of the Lead Character's family and major arsenal). So the plots are fine, the settings authentic but the characters need to be more sympathetic and relate more with the average "Joe", like me, with more humor and depth. This applies to Kate the most. I'll give the series a rest for several months or a year then read Book #5 and see if I remember anyone I truly like.

A COLD-BLOODED BUSINESS by Dana Stabenow may be the weakest story in the Kate Shugak series. The discovery of oil brought more people to Alaska than the Gold Rush, but the crooks must vie with the homesteaders to make a life in the frozen north. As always Ms. Stabenow provides the exact details to open the doors for the reader to the promise land. With A COLD-BLOODED BUSINESS, those details have intruded on the story telling.
Drugs and stolen native grave tokens vie for the front seat in a land where there is no margin for error. It is a little plodding, but still a good read for Kate's fans.

Once you read one of these books in the Kate Shugak series, you just have to stop and buy the first book to read them
all in sequence. It's like living in Alaska right along side of her. What a great series. If i comment on one book, I have commented on all the books in the Kate Shugak series. You cannot find a better read, and the author did an excellent job of writing these books. The history of Alaska through Kate Shugak's eyes is so amazing and forthwith. Just love them. I truly recommend you start from the first book and you can take it from there.
