During our January 2010 meeting, we discussed Dana Stabenow’s 2007 Alaska-set mystery/thriller A Deeper Sleep; part of her Kate Shugak series. This particular volume featured Kate and her State Trooper boyfriend Jim Chopin investigating the death of a misogynistic, wife-abusing bully, who may or may not have been the killer of the local barkeep’s wife and son — all while Kate tries to avoid being forced into a position of authority in the local Native association by her “aunties”.
