It’s a book!

We officially launch the twentieth Kate Shugak novel this evening at 7pm at the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, Arizona!

This is the slideshow I will be narrating this evening. Without, you know, the narration. You have to show up for that.

How to get to The Poisoned Pen.

Here are some buy links (like I’d leave those off):

Some of the nice things said about Bad Blood so far:

This is Dana’s most lyrical writing about Alaska, truly gorgeous in content and prose. I reread several descriptive paragraphs to savor them (again). Plus, as I wrote to her, what you’ve got is the kind of thing that honor killings and blood feuds are made of, so in fact while acknowledging Shakespeare, completely contemporary but in a surprise context.

Hiaasen has his Florida, Memminger now has his Hawaii, and Dana Stabenow most definitely has her Alaska. I may never make it all the way up north but, Stabenow takes me there with every Kate Shugak mystery she writes. Each of these penetrating novels is good, from the very first, A Cold Day for Murder (available practically for free as an e-book) to Stabenow’s latest, Bad Blood. Bad Blood comes out later this month and is the 20 Kate Shugak mystery in 20 years. Congratulations to Stabenow and lucky for us. Twenty years on, Shugak is just as determined as ever, and when her badass trooper boyfriend gets involved in the feud between two neighboring communities, she does not hesitate to jump in to help out. Stabenow does it all: ample history, rich socio-political background, vivid atmosphere, complex characters, hot sex, twisted plot, and solid conclusion. What more could anyone want from a midwinter escape?

And since you asked, click here for your own Kate 20/20 mug, which includes a bag of Tsunami Blend, which as you will remember from Midnight Come Again is that known coffee snob, Chopper Jim’s favorite coffee.

And thank you all so much for your support for lo these twenty years! Kate and Mutt really appreciate it. Me, too.

    Wow! I just finished Bad Blood. I cried just like the time I finished Hunters Moon. My goodness lady, I feel like I personally know every character. My mother initially got me to read the series and I’ve been hooked ever since. I impatiently await your next triumph!

    I was breathless when I finished Bad Blood. I just love Kate and this series. I will never get to Alaska- but I feel as if I have from the vivid descriptions. Please, please tell me there will be continued books in this series.

    I have just completed the Kate Shukag series for the second time before reading Bad Blood! OMGoodness! I am glad to hear there will be another in the series. Guess I’d miss the characters and I really would like to see Erland Bannister get his due.
    Thank you for such a wonderful series.

    When is the next Kate Shukag novel coming? I am trying to be patient, but really, really want to know about Kate and Mutt.
