Edgar Award winner Dana Stabenow has written nine atmospheric crime novels featuring the very prickly, very human Kate Shugak, but her novels also have a scene-stealing costar: Alaska, unforgiving, breathtaking, dangerous, and beautiful. Stabenow's evocation of this wilderness, combined with her talent for bringing characters to life and creating knuckle-whitening suspense, has made her "one of the strongest voices in crime fiction." (Seattle Times).

Now in Midnight Come Again, all these elements come together for Stabenow's most compelling Kate Shugak novel to date.

Kate, a former investigator for the Anchorage D.A. and now a P.I. for hire, is missing after a winter spent in mourning. Alaska State Trooper Jim Chopin, Kate's best friend, needs her to help him work a new case. He discovers her hiding out in Bering, a small fishing village on Alaska's western coast, living and working under an assumed name-- working hard, as eighteen-hour workdays seem to be her only justification for getting up in the morning. But before they can even discuss Kate's last several months, or what Jim is doing looking for her in Bering, they're up to their eyes in Jim's case, which is suddenly more complicated-- and more dangerous-- than they suspected.

A magnificent crime novel about life in America's last wilderness, the heart-wrenching grief that goes with love, and murder, Midnight Come Again is Dana Stabenow's best novel to date.

Kate and Jim's characters are both rounded out more fully in this outing, originally in print in 2000, as is that of Mutt, who picks up on who can and can't be trusted before either of them does. Kate's gone missing , over her grief and guilt over Jack's death, barely getting through the days. Coincidentally, some overly clueless FBI agents send him to her employer as an undercover agent. They're convinced a Russian fishing vessel is passing plutonium through Kate's air freight boss, and that she's in on it because one of the Russians visits her. Jim can't/won't tell her why he's there. Kate begins to come back from the figurative dead and gets curious. She asks an old friend who works in a bank to check the records of the fishing vessels, and the Russian ship turns out to be money laundering. This info, unfortunately, costs the woman her life, and nearly costs Kate and Jim theirs. But the woman's precocious daughter gives Kate something and someone to live for, and, when she gets home, so does Jack's son Johnny, standing in the doorway of her cabin.
