Publisher's Summary

Two thousand people go missing in Alaska every year.

They vanish in the middle of mountain footraces, on fishing boats in the Bering Sea, on small planes in the Bush. Now a geologist known for going walkabout with his rock hammer has disappeared from the Suulutaq Mine in the Park. Was it deliberate? An accident? Foul play? Kate Shugak may be the only person who can find out.

But for the fact that Kate, too, is among the missing....

What the Critics Say

"Richly nuanced, [and] highly entertaining.... The book is sprinkled with wit, studded with exquisite descriptions of the rugged landscape, and filled with opinionated and endearing characters, including reality TV show producers, park rangers, geologists, and barkeeps." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

    "about time Kate returned"

    I was thrilled to have Kate Shugask back in my reading/listening life again. This book was excellent. The naration was,also. No one in my opinion could render Kate and all the characters as well as Margarita Gavin does. The story was very interesting and it was a pleasure to listen to. I hope that Dana Stabenow has decided to keep writing the Kate Shugak books for a long time to come. There are many more stories to tell,I am sure.

    "I don't understand the love for Kate"
    Would you recommend Less Than a Treason to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not now that I've read/listened to the whole series...it's too much of the same thing.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't understand the love for Kate Shugak either by all of the other characters or by the readers. I found very little evidence in the books that she's earned it. She's not nice, treats people like crap and just does her own thing with very little regard for anyone else. And she's always right. Yes, we know that she's beautiful beyond belief (although she just doesn't know it - sigh) and that she can have sex anywhere, anytime and in the most incredible positions. Also sigh. Oh, and with a single look from under her eyelashes, she makes every man weak in the knees. She's also one of those annoying people who think her dog has a right to be everywhere.

    In this book she runs away - again - and everyone thinks that's just fine. Adults don't deal that way - selfish teenagers do.

    What's kept me reading and listening for all of the books (although, for me this is the last one) is that I like a lot of the other characters and the descriptions of daily life - historically and present time - has been well-told and interesting. It's not enough for me anymore.

    Story
    "Kate keeps rolling along"

    This book is really a continuation of Dana Stabenow's last book, 'Bad Blood'. It likely could have been written as one book or as the second of a sequel. But it did have different crimes to solve so hence we got this book.

    In 'Bad Blood' the book ended with Kate and her dog, Mutt, getting shot without any final word and how it turned out for them. Since the series continues it is safe to say Kate survived. As with many of her books the author lays the groundwork with some background on different aspects of Alaska and the characters in her book. But eventually she gets to the crime and you are caught up in the resolution.

    I continue to learn more about Alaska through her books. Even those living there get really cold in the winter and don't want to stay outside any longer than they have to. It is mentioned in the story that the elements of Alaska are out to get the people, some because they don't know any better and some that know better and still let Mother Nature get them anyway.

    I find myself enjoying this series more the longer I listen to it.
