Book #18 Midnight Come Again

Midnight Come Again (Kate Shugak, Book 10) Midnight Come Again by Dana Stabenow

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I stayed up til the wee hours with this one!  Kate Shugak has left her homestead, changed her name, and abandoned her friends in her deep grief.  Meanwhile, Jim Chopin has been tapped to go undercover by the FBI to trace a Russian Mafia plutonium smuggling scheme.  Off he goes to Bering, where he takes a job as a freight handler at the local airstrip.  Imagine his surprise when the other employee turns out to be Kate!  This novel features Jim Chopin prominently and much of it is told from his point of view.  As the novel progresses, however, Kate is brought back to the forefront as she finally begins to emerge from her paralyzing grief.  Once again, Dana Stabenow evokes the culture and geography of Alaska well, and her characters take on new depths as the story plays out.  I've already started the next one in the series!
