The spring thaw has come to Alaska. Locals refer to the short season as “the breakup,” a time when earth goes from snow to slush, grizzles come out of hibernation, and everyone goes more than a little nutty. The warmer weather is a happy change for those who have been enduring long dark nights and frigid days, but Alaskan sleuth Kate Shugak would be happy to let the winter take over again so long as it would take some of her newfound troubles with it. Not only is she taking on more responsibilities for her Aleut clan, but a plane has crashed into her house and cleanup crew has uncovered a dead body near her home. And that’s just the beginning of the mayhem that put’s Kate on the trail of a murderer in Dana Stabenow’s Breakup, the fifth installment in her New York Times-bestselling Kate Shugak series.
