The third in the New York Times bestselling series by Dana Stabenow. Aleut private investigartor Kate Shugak seeks answers when two men disappear from a ship in mysterious circumstances.
The Edgar Award-winning, New York Times-bestselling series by Dana Stabenow set in Alaska. Aleut private investigator Kate Shugak investigates a strange disappearance in Dead in the Water.
Last March, two men disappeared whilst loading supplies on a remote island in the Bering Sea: two million square miles of dark capricious ocean and tempestuous squalls.
Their Skipper, Harry Gault, should have been fired, at the least. But six months later he's still aboard the Avilda, and the families of the missing men are making noises about corruption. With the crew backing his version of events, what the authorities need is an investigator who can survive the torturous conditions on an Alaskan fishing trawler.
Someone like Kate Shugak...
