Review

Once Alaska state trooper sergeant Liam Campbell was on the fast track to success but tragedy struck, and he fell down on the job resulting in his exile to the small fishing town of Newenham, population 2000. He quickly distinguished himself by catching a serial killer leading to his superiors wanting him back in Anchorage.

Though he would have a more powerful position with more opportunities for promotion, Liam needs to think about the offer because the woman he loves has a home and business in Newenham. He also likes the townsfolk who honor and respect him and his badge. Before he can sort out his personal life, Liam is determined to find the killer of a seventy-four year old woman who he admired and was loved by most of the locals. It’s a baffling case because there isn’t any suspect or even a motive yet somebody is determined to keep the truth buried as that someone tries to kill Liam before he can unmask he perpetrator.

The beauty, the grandeur, and the danger of the Alaskan frontier come vividly alive through the writing of Dana Stabenow. The protagonist is a good person and an exceptional police officer because he believes in justice yet cares about the people depending on his protection. The absorbing and believable mystery is one of the better installments in the meritorious Liam Campbell series.
