#103 for 2009

Play with Fire (Kate Shugak, Book 5) Play with Fire by Dana Stabenow

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The fire-ravaged woods hold more than a bumper crop of morel mushrooms. Kate Shugak stumbles across the partially decomposed nude corpse of Dan Seabolt, a teacher who has been missing for more than a year.  He's the son of a charismatic fundamentalist preacher, and father of a 10 year old boy who has hired Kate to find his missing father.  Kate's investigation into Daniel's death uncovers larger issues:  Who controls local education? What's the role of organized religion? Where is the line between faith and fanaticism? 

I really like this series, and I especially enjoyed this entry.

You've persuaded me. I'm using this month's credit for a Dana Stabenow novel. I had been meaning to try her out for awhile, and your review renewed my interest. I'll let you know what I think.
