    One thought on “Dead In The Water”

    1. It had to happen, but it happened way too early. This book came at a terrible timing. My story is that I was hurting from forcing myself to read Moby Dick, a'right?So I was rationing Moby Dick by reading the Kate Shugak series. What could go wrong? But the thing is Dead in The Water was so aptly named a book for a one star rating.Plus I feel that the author was paying an homage to Herman Melville. On another day I might have given this book more credit but I can't! I can't.

    2. I know you out there following my reviews will think I've become predictable and you're probably right where this series is concerned. But in my defence, I love books that are a diversion of every day life, not too demanding and packed with interesting information. It's a fast moving story with enough tension and not too much detail in the violence. Besides, I can safely assume that Kate will survive all her ordeals. So another 5 stars for the third book in the Kate Shugak series.

    3. Wonderful edge of my seat action plus adventure on the frozen sea. I swear I thought I'd scream during several of the near death moments. Kate can be insanely strong ! Oh and i love the new character California surfer Andy.Kate goes on a crabbing boat, one of the most dangerous jobs on earth to find out what happened to two missing/presumed dead crabbers. She faces a frozen angry ocean, meets an elder who teaches her much and faces some of her past. Holy smokes it's intense !Now on to #4

    4. Dead In The Water is the 3rd installment of the popular Kate Shugak Series by Dana Stabenow. And it's my favorite to date.Shugak has allowed her former boss and part time lover talk her into finding out what happened to two crewmen on the Avilda crabbing vessel captained by the ne'er to well son in law of a major Board Diector of the vessel's parent company. Harry Gault isn't whom he's thought to be. Crabbing in the Bering Sea is hard work as well as dangerous. Kate has much to fear while she's [...]

    5. Whenever I read a Kate Shugak mystery, I always go back to see if Dana Stabenow has any Native blood because her portrait of the indigenous Alaskans is so 3 dimensional. I have ever claimed to be constantly annoyed by Anglo authors who can't resist the lure of the Noble Savage and the connection to the Great Spirits and the Ancestors. Dana Stabenow, however, is pitch perfect. Her representations of life at the Park (aka the Aleut Rez) and the dynamics between the tribal members, the old ways vs. [...]

    6. In the third book featuring native Alaskan investigator, Kate Shugak, we find her working undercover as a crab fisherman aboard the fishing vessel Avilda. The skipper, Harry Gault, has reported that two men on the last voyage went ashore on Anua Island and never returned. This is not written as a typical mystery since we already know Harry is the bad guy. I would describe it as more of a suspense novel, especially after Kate meets a young Aleutian native who is able to provide clues through stor [...]

    7. Dana Stabenow has created quite an unusual character in native Alaskan Aleut Kate Shugak, a former investigator for the Anchorage D.A.'s office, who was seriously injured in one of those investigations. This is the third in the series and has Kate going undercover on an Alaskan fishing boat. Its a really tough job for a small woman, or a large man for that matter, so Kate faces two issues -- how to survive the undercover job and try to investigate a case where doesn't even have any clue as to wh [...]

    8. This has been my favourite book in the series so far (it's the third). In this book Kate is working on a crab fishing boat in the Bering Sea. There are two reasons that this worked for me. The first was that the setting was wonderful and I really got the feel of the icy seas and the isolated villages visited. The second is that because Kate was away from her home ground I didn't spend half the book wondering if I was supposed to remember the characters from the previous books which is what happe [...]

    9. I'm really enjoying the Kate Shugak mysteries. In this story Kate works undercover on a crabbing boat in the Bering Sea. It's amazing what this lady can accomplish. Maybe a little farfetched, but based on the author's life experiences, maybe not so much. Anyway, fun and quick to read.

    10. I continue to just love this series! Kate Shugak is a marvelous heroine, the history of Alaska and the antics of the native people is just enthralling.In this installment, Kate goes undercover on an Alaskan crab boat where two crew members disappeared. The story is very detailed regarding the crabbing industry. Lucky for me I just watched Deadliest Catch on Thanksgiving, so everything they were doing was something I could picture which made my understanding of the danger and freezing temperature [...]

    11. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to work on a crabbing boat in Alaska and thought you might like to try itis book will dissuade you of that notion right quick!Kate is back and working another undercover case for the D.A.'s office. This time she is working on a crabbing boat trying to find out why two men have disappeared.This book is filled with a great who and why did they do, it mystery, heart pounding excitement (learn what it is really like to be in the middle of the Aleutians [...]

    12. The Kate Shugak series gets better and better! I just finished this 3rd book via audio, and loved it. The narrator is terrific, as always, and I really enjoyed Kate's adventure this time around. In this book, the action takes place entirely on board a fishing vessel in the Bering Sea and at various places in the Aleutian Islands. At first, I was hesitant, thinking I would miss Kate's home setting of Niniltna and the familiar cast of characters there, but I ended up quite entertained by Kate's da [...]

    13. DEAD IN THE WATER - G+Stabenow, Dana - 3rd in seriesThere's something fishy about the disappearance of two crew members from an Alaskan fishing boat. Investigator Kate Shugak goes undercover and starts casting her net for clues among the toughest crew on the Bering Sea. And if she doesn't watch her back, she could end up being forced to walk the plank.Didn't care for this book as much as I had the first two, but I shall definitely keep reading her.

    14. Third book in the Alaskan experience. This is not quite as endearing as the first two in the series but that doesn't mean this is not worthwhile and I certainly want to read further. I like Kate Shugak, and Dana Stabenow writes in a mellow style that suits my soul and the lady who narrates is a .Good.Choice. Aleutian Islands:[image error]

    15. Just when I made a joke to a friend (who is on book #16 of this series) about man, that's a lot of dead people for a small village, I pick up book #3, only to find that Kate has ventured out of Niniltna and out to the Aleutian Islands. I guess Ms. Stabenow isn't going to kill off every tenant of The Park after all!Another quality mystery. Looking forward to the next.

    16. Kate Shugak is working undercover on Fishing Boat in north Alaskan waters.The history of islands and of the danger of crab fishing is first-class. Jack has hired to explore the case of two missing fishermen from the boat. It has been awhile and families and boat company want answers. There are several twists and turns in the story before Kate finds answers.

    17. I do love Stabenow! It's a social studies lesson within a well wrought mystery! In this installment we learn about Auna island and the Aleut and their basket weaving techniques and a young girls storyknife.

    18. This (#3 in the series) is my first book involving Kate Shugak, but I didn't have the feeling that I missed much. The prose is good but not exceptional, and the narration by Marguerite Gavin is acceptable but flat. The trouble is that I like mysteries more than thrillers, and this book has very little mystery. In my lexicon, a mystery is a story in which the villain(s) are not apparent, at least, not until very late in the story. A thriller is a story in which there is a great deal of action sur [...]

    19. Read this dated book due to ' recommendation after my last book. Description sounded good since it was a mystery based in Alaska, but either the editing was poor or Kate used a slang that left out a lot of little words (like to, at, from, etc.) which made the reading and meaning more difficult. Also since the mystery took place on an Alaskan crabbing boat, I was unfamiliar with a lot of the terms and expressions. Kate goes undercover to find out what happened to two missing sailors whose familie [...]

    20. I read the previous two before this, the Author is getting better the more books she writes. The first I wasn’t too overly impressed with, but the second was a great improvement, same can be said for the third. I like that it was set somewhere else, that there were new characters/new elements keeping the story fresh. Also it was very clear that the Author knew what she was talking about went it came to the fishing side of things.Overall I just like who the main character is. She a no guff kind [...]

    21. Another great entry in a very intriguing series.This book finds Kate on a crab fishing boat out of Dutch Harbor. A couple of deck hands disappeared and the DA wants answers. Kate is working undercover and that means working hard on the boat. She was also drawn to the area where her family originally lived before their forced relocation during WWII. The Aleutians are beautiful and deadly.I really enjoyed this book. Yes, I know this series has been out forever. The test of a truly great book/serie [...]

    22. I love this series, but unfortunately, I've read many of them out of order, so this is going backwards for me and it's nice to meet characters I've only heard about in future stories. My only complaint about this book is that Mutt is not in it, because Kate takes a job aboard a crab boat to help the DA's office figure out what happened to two crewmen who were lost at sea. With the exception of no Mutt, this book has everything I love about this series: amazing descriptions of Alaska, fully writt [...]

    23. Really liked the book. Kate goes out on a crab boat to investigate the disappearance of two deck hands. She is working for her boyfriend who is an Anchorage D.A. investigator. The work on the boat is difficult and dangerous. She discovers that the captain and 2 others are smuggling dealing drugs from a remote island and nearly gets killed. Along the way she befriends another young deck hand and several natives in one of the villages. A well written mystery that involves the wilds of Alaska.

    24. I think the book is well written and has a unique, well-drawn protagonist, but there is more that makes this a cut above many others in the genre. The author of this series seamlessly integrates Alaska’s native culture and ecology into her stories making the setting as important as the plot adding a strong additional element of interest. Worth the read.

    25. So Kate Shugak is on a case again, this time on a fishing boat in the Bering sea. Along with a good mystery you get a tiny glimpse into what it would be like to be fishing for crab in some of the worlds toughest waters. No thank you, I am so grateful to hav my job and will never complain about having to go outside for recess again.

    26. I love the Kate Shugak mysteries, & have read most of them twice. Set in Alaska, with non-stop action & great characters you can almost feel the boat heave beneath your feet & taste the cold salt spray. Highly recommended!

    27. Boring. Don't know how it made top 10 best sellers list; maybe based on previous novels, which I did not read. Some interesting facts about Alaska & tribes, but did not perk my interest to look forward to getting back to Kate's mission.Pick something else.
