    I've read a few books in this series (Kate Shugak #19). It's one of those series, that my OCD allows me read out of order. While I didn't like this one as much as some of the others, there is still much to like and not because they take place in Alaska.I like the MC. She is fun and doesn't overthink every little nuance in her life. She is flawed, but navigates that well. She has a half-wolf dog for a sidekick. And as always, I love the humor. It always puts me into a conspiratorial smile. I like [...]

    Dana Stabenow’s Shugak novels really defy pigeonholing. Yes, they are mysteries, but they are also an intimate look at life in Alaska (where writer Stabenow was born and raised,) and an ongoing set of vignettes about a unique special woman: Kate Shugak. One of my favorite things about this series (Stabenow has several series, as well as some freestanding thrillers and several works in anthologies) is that the characters grow, change, age, and—yes—die. This series works well both in its ser [...]

    First, I haven't yet read any of the Liam Campbell books though the first is in my cue. Based on this book I am looking forward to that series. I found Liam to be humble, kind, and likable. He will make an interesting protagonist. And I am even more excited about the idea of getting to know more about his wife.Second, Book #18 returned to its roots and gave me a lot of backstory on Kate and Jim, glimpses into life in the Park, and Alaska shining as its own character -- which is exactly what I wa [...]

    I have read the Kate Shugak novels from the beginning. Dana Stabenow started with characterization as her strong suit, and her characters are still well-developed, interesting people who are three-dimensional enough to learn from their own mistakes. But it has been a real joy to read along as Stabenow has gotten better and better at crafting plot, leading to intricate, finely-written intrigues that keep you guessing right up until the end.Restless in the Grave is proof of Stabenow's skill with s [...]

    on to the last book in this great series!

    Far from the best of the Kate Shugak mysteries, RESTLESS IN THE GRAVE at times suffers from the difficulty author's face in writing a series. One issue is how much information is necessary for a new reader to understand the character and the backstory. RESTLESS IN THE GRAVE is in many ways too depended on Stabenow's previous novels. Too much of this story is lost without the reader having familiarity with the characters. A second issue is how to keep the story fresh from returning readers. A cha [...]

    This is the first book I've read featuring Liam Campbell (though I do own quite a few of them). Well he doesn't actually star in this one, Kate does as usual but Liam is a secondary character. I really liked Liam and will definitely be digging into his series as soon as I finish with Kate's.In this one, Liam asks Kate to help him with a possible murder in Newenham, Alaska. A pilot died in a crash and Liam's wife is a possible suspect so Liam has to step back and allow Kate to take over. However, [...]

    It's not just a murder mystery count the crimes: assault, kidnapping/imprisonment, fraud, theft, weapons violations, domestic violence, conspiracy, blackmail, B&E. You will have to read the story yourself to see which crimes are committed by the bad guys and which are committed by the good guys. Along the way, enjoy the sci-fi, historical, and literary tidbits and epic themes of shamanism, revenge, death and even birth.

    Wow! I am excited to read this bookI love the cover.

    Barbara
    Although this book takes place in Liam Campbell's town, it's really more a Kate Shugak story. Still, it's fun to have the two leads interacting, and the story was complex enough to keep me searching for clues right up to the end.

    Susan
    Excellent readGreat story line. Love the interaction between Kate and Mutt. I can't wait to read the next one to see what Kate gets into.

    Review for Restless in the Grave by Dana StabenowFirst up, let me just say that Stabenow must be sweating bullets. Folks have been chomping at the bit for this book for a long, long time. Which means expectations are up. Which means, as an author, that you're worried about not living up to those expectations. As we all know, readers are a tough bunch. This book takes two of her larger-than-life characters, Alaskan state trooper Liam (from the Liam Campbell Series) and private investigator Kate ( [...]

    First Sentence: They kept it simple. They could cut off his right hand, or he could use it to learn how to fire the weapon they gave him.PI Kate Shugak is surprised to receive a call from State Trooper Liam Campbell. An even bigger surprise is being offered a job to investigate a murder; however, one of the possible suspects is Campbell’s wife. Traveling to Niniltana and working undercover doesn’t seem so bad, except someone is taking strong exception to her presence and making that clear in [...]

    This is the newest and most unusual of all of Ms Stabenow's books. Dana writes 2 separate series set in Alaska. One is about state trooper Liam Campbell and the other is about private investigator Kate Shugak. Restless in the Grave combines the 2 main characters from both series and turns it into one action and mystery filled, un-put-downable book.Some readers who have never read any of Ms Stabenow's works may wonder if they can read this as a stand-alone book. While I believe these two series t [...]

    Restless in the Grave starts out with an atypical opening sequence for Dana Stabenow’s Alaska-based mysteries. It starts on a hilltop in Helmand province, Afghanistan, where a young Afghani, kidnapped and trained by the Taliban for this one mission, aims a brand new high-tech weapon at a helicopter, killing all inside.The scene switches to Alaska, where the protagonists of Stabenow’s two Alaskan series, Liam Campbell and Kate Shugak meet up. Campbell’s wife, Wy Chouinard, is a suspect in t [...]

    Restless in the Grave is another terrific book by Dana Stabenow, who is one of my favorite authors. This book features both of Ms. Stabenow's Alaskan series characters, Kate Shugak and Liam Campbell.It is State Trooper Liam who indirectly contacts Kate to go undercover to solve the murder of a wealthy aviation businessman, Finn Grant. Grant had alienated almost everyone in his town by buying them out to turn it into a destination for hunters and other explorers of the Alaskan wilderness. Kate go [...]

    Dana Stabenow's latest novel combines two of her favorite characters, Aleut private investigator Kate Shugak and Alaska state trooper Liam Campbell. Alaska aviation entrepreneur Finn Grant died in the crash of his Piper Super Club. Someone had sabotaged his engine and everyone in southwestern had a motive: his betrayed wife, bullied children, Liam's wife, and bush pilot Wyanet Chouinard. Liam turns to Jim, his former mentor now stationed at Niniltna as post commander, for help in clearing his wi [...]

    Kate Shugak, PI, wants to get out of town for a while so she accepts a job from State Trooper, Liam Campbell, to investigate a death in his town which has been linked to his pilot wife.

She quickly realises that there is a large list of suspects and soon uncovers even more motivation to get rid of him and people who might be eager to do so.Grant has mysteriously become very ric [...]

    What do you get when an author combines female protagonist from a well established, long-running series A with male protagonist from a well-established but not as long-running series B, along with a host of returning secondary characters from both series that are as much fun to read about as our hero & heroine? Add to this mix the suspicious death of an almost universally despised man, greed and avarice, a mother's pain, a horrible loss, an unexpected and unwelcomed romantic temptation for f [...]

    Whoa! Far and away Stabenow's best book to date but you'd only know that if you did your homework. Like famous pairing of Hillerman's beloved characters Leaphorn and Chee years ago, the convergence of Stabenow's Shugak mysteries with her lesser known Liam Campbell series is astounding. It's all there--Kate and the cast of characters from her life, dead and alive and Liam's posse with the irrepressible Moses. Let us not forget Mutt who is on almost every page. To top off this amazing synthesis, t [...]

    In a bid to keep the Shugak books from getting too samey, the author has moved to explore another part of Alaska, a different town and an island in the offshore chain. Kate and her wolf-dog Mutt take off to work undercover and end up helping the policeman Liam Campbell from her other series, which seems like an attempt to get readers to buy the other series. I did find it samey in that the same things are said of Kate and Mutt, the same things noticed about them, the same kind of getting trapped [...]

    In any long series, it's important to have variety. Some authors just get darker and darker, but Stabenow provides a more refreshing mix. In the previous book, many personal loose-ends were resolved for Kate Shugak. In this book, Kate needs to get out of town (er the Park), and an opportunity is presented. In the process, she meets up with the gang from the Liam Campbell series. There's no pre-amble, so you'd best have read those books too. The mystery is both intricate and straight-forward, wit [...]

    Darn, I wanted to like it. Heard her speak at DESERT NIGHT RISING STARS conference at ASU in Feb. 2013. Really enjoyed her comments in the panel of authors. But this was my first book in her series (she now has 19) and I was put off by rote passages of description and half-hearted protagonist-jeapordies. There were three times Kate (the Protaganist) was in trouble -- in a freezer, a dumpster and a container on a ship. each time she was rescued by a man on the next page. Not exactly a heroine wit [...]

    Kate is still mourning the loss of Old Sam, when state trooper Liam Campbell enlists her help to determine whether a suspicious death of a pilot was murder, with the primary suspect being his wife. Kate works undercover as a bargirl in a small town, and quickly discover that the dead man seems to have built his business by blackmailing numerous people. Kate and Mutt get themselves into several near death situations (again) and eventually uncover a major federal crime, along with the assistance o [...]

    Nineteenth in the long-running Kate Shugak series (an Alaskan native private detective), Restless in the Grave is a crossover with Stabenow's other mystery series, the Liam Campbell stories (also set in Alaska). Primarily from Kate and her police boyfriend Jim's pov, it combines mystery with the daily grind of policing, and also the politics of extended family and native village life.The cross-over aspects felt, at times, a little over-indulgent, but the mystery is compelling reading and Kate is [...]

    The audio version of Restless in the Grave violated my version of the 50-page-rule. I listened to the first disk and couldn't have cared less about any of the characters or the story. Stabenow came recommended by several friends and this book sounded interesting, but I really couldn't find a single redeeming quality about this story. Don't think I'll give another of her works a shot.

    Dana
    I won this book on and I really liked it. It was an easy read, it was flowing well with a bit of suspense and mystery. I found it interesting to read about life and people in Alaska. There were some references in the book that did not mean very much to me as I never read any other Kate Shugak novels but I did not find it frustrating or difficult to follow the story.

    Virna
    I didn't like this book. Not the plot, I did not care to know about beds or a pink dress, or food, this is fill a lot and nothing. She is a P.I. and most of this book she was trap or trouble. This audiobook will have work better with less. The book was boring.

    Julia
    I've always meant to be caught up on the Liam Campbell series before reading this one, but I've had a hard time building momentum with it. Still, skipping straight here was doable, despite some spoilers for the Campbell books.

    Kelli
    Story: BNarration: BQuick Review:This was a good story that will satisfy followers of the series although it lacks the emotional punch or extreme life-and-death drama of some of the previous entries. It’s suitable for new listeners but, not a surprise at book nineteen, there’s a ton of back-story that makes time spent with these characters a much richer experience. Combining protagonists from the author’s two primary series worked surprisingly well and despite not having read any of the Li [...]
