Bad Blood
"New York Times bestselling author Dana Stabenow's latest finds Kate Shugak entangled in a bitter tribal rivalry and murder One hundred years of bad blood between the villages of Kushtaka and Kuskulana come to a boil when the body of a young Kushtaka ne'er-do-well is found wedged in a fish wheel. 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. This time, though, her Park relationships may not be enough to sort out the truth hidden in the tales of tragedy and revenge"--

Dana Stabenow phoned this one in.

I have never been able to put down a Kate Shugak novel once I started reading. I put this one down - several times. No character development. The plodding plot is, according to the Acknowledgments, is based on "Romeo & Juliet". You, Ms Stabenow, are NOT Will Shakespeare. Completely unnecessary explicit sex scenes - where did THAT come from? And the ending is trite, hackneyed, and an insult to her many fans.

Oh, no!! How could Dana Stabenow end it this way? She is taking a break from the Kate Shugak series too? Not fair!

If you love Kate, try Dana Stabenow's quirky summary of the series on youtube:
....nooooo! Dana revealed at a recent book signing, that she's taking a break from Kate....we won't find out what happens for nearly 2 yrs....

The author just gets better and better. I can't wait for the next Kate Shugak (Mutt better live!).
