A Night Too Dark (Kate Shugak Series #17) - Dana Stabenow
It's easy to under-rate Dana Stabenow's Alaskan mysteries. They're such an effortless, absorbing read that I tend to forget how much work has gone into creating that reader experience. I don't want to share spoilers, so all I'll say is how much I love the sense of personal conflict/growth, meeting familiar friends, navigating political waters and generally enjoying the vividly alive Alaskan setting.
