In A DEEPER SLEEP, her first novel since Blindfold Game , the stand-alone political thriller that made Dana Stabenow a New York Times bestseller, the author returns to the popular and award-
winning Kate Shugak series.
Kate, a private investigator, has been working on a case for the Anchorage District Attorney involving the murder of a young woman by her husband, a man named Louis Deem. Deem has been the subject of investigation before, and he's never been convicted of a crime. But Kate and her on-again, off-again lover, state trooper Jim Chopin, who arrested Deem, are convinced that this time it's different, and he'll finally be punished for his actions.
When the jury returns a verdict of not guilty, Kate and Jim are devastated, and like the rest of the citizens of Niniltna, Alaska, certain that a man has gotten away with murder. They can't help but think that it's only a matter of time before he's in the frame for another killing.
Sure enough, a few weeks later a shooting leaves two dead in an apparent robbery. But this time Kate and Jim have a witness, and they're not going to let Louis Deem get away again. Or
will he?
Dana Stabenow, Edgar Award(R)-winning author and New York Times bestselling thriller writer, delivers a gripping nail-biter about one town's search for justice----at any cost.

I love the Kate Shugak series, and the story trumped my disappointment that this one was not narrated by Marguerite Gavin who is the narrator for all the previous books I've listened to in the series. Alert: When you settle in to listen to this, make sure you have flour, salt, and yeast on hand because you may find yourself with a yen to make bread.

Louis Deem gets away with everything, and the Park rats hate him. He's acquitted for the second time of the murder of a young wife that everyone's convinced he committed. That's bad enough. Then a robbery gone wrong results in two more deaths, and Johnny, a witness, is sure he can ID Deem. This brings the whole family into danger, but Kate's proud that he sticks to his guns and Jim arrests Deem. However, this is his only solid evidence, and the powers that be force his hand and he must let him go. The results shock everyone, and Jim is hard pressed to know what to do. Interesting relationship issues, as well as police ethical issues. Also Kate has to face up to her grandmother's desire for her to take a leadership role in the tribe. So far as I can get copies of this series in order, I'm learning it really pays to read them that way, as I learn much more about the characters.
