Pressestimmen

'For those who like series, mysteries, books with rich, idiosyncratic settings, engaging characters, Strong Women and reasonably hot sex on occasion ... let me recommend Dana Stabenow' Diana Gabaldon. 'A darkly compelling view of life in the Alaskan bush, well laced with lots of gallows humor. Her characters are very believable, the story lines are always suspenseful, and every now and then she lets a truly vile villain be eaten by a grizzley. Who could ask for more?' Sharon Penman. 'Stabenow is blessed with a rich prose style and a fine eye for detail. An outstanding series.' Washington Post. 'One of the strongest voices in crime fiction' Seattle Times. 'An antidote to sugary female sleuths: Kate Shugak, the Aleut private investigator' New York Times.

Kurzbeschreibung

Two crewmen of the crab vessel Avilda are missing—presumed dead—under very suspicious circumstances. The Bering Sea offers ample means and opportunity, but without bodies, a motive, or evidence of foul play, the DA doesn’t have a case. And so, freelancing again for her former employer, Kate Shugak finds herself working undercover in one of Alaska’s most dangerous professions: crab fisherman. It’s an assignment that will take her from the debauchery of Dutch Harbor to the most isolated of the Aleutians, and if the job itself doesn’t kill her, her unsavory crewmates just might.

Third in Stabenow’s Edgar Award-winning series of Alaskan mysteries, Dead in the Water is richly informed by the author’s own upbringing aboard an Alaskan fishing vessel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mutt ist nicht dabei 30. November 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Diese Story spielt überwiegend auf See, also nicht im "üblichen" Umfeld, dem Park und auch Mutt ist dieses Mal nicht dabei.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Little On The Light Side 10. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I didn't enjoy this one as much as I have the other books in this series. The action scenes were very good, but the plot was a little thin. I missed reading about Mutt, the homestead, and the folks back home. Still, a pretty good read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lots about the Aluetians, not much mystery though 17. Januar 2001
Von Carol Peterson Hennekens - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
My husband and I are both big fans of the Kate Chugak series. We both came away disappointed with this installment. The problem is pretty basic. In the other books in this series, the mystery is the core of the book and the setting is the frosting on the cake. The mix is seriously reversed in this book, which is fine if you really want to learn about the Aluetian Islands. It's not so hot if you want a page turning mystery.
Bottom line -- if you really like reading your mysteries in order, this is worth reading since the horrors of the crab boat are referred to often in later books. Otherwise, don't go out of your way to find this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Aleutian chill 2. Mai 2002
Von tertius3 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I wasn't sure I'd enjoy a mystery set aboard a fishing vessel in cold Alaskan waters--I just knew Kate would be drowned (shiver)--but I started anyway because I like the series about Aleut detective Kate Shugak. Very glad I did, this story has everything. Atmosphere (not just fog but Alaskan "characters"), terror, mean people, romance, Aleut customs. True, there's not much mystery about whodunnit, but there's lots of suspense about how Kate will ever prove it. Although Shugak has definite native Alaskan and envrionmentalist tendencies, nature description is not Stabenow's strong point nor goal. A good light read with a touch of social consciousness to it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not a new book! 4. Dezember 2012
Von Grayce M. Booth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book, like all of Dana Stabenow's Kate Shugak series, is a good read. But this book was published back in 1993 in paperback, so this hard cover is a re-release, but there's nothing in the description of the item to indicate that. I ordered it because I order everything printed (not on Kindle) by Stabenow, but I certainly would not have ordered it if I had known it wasn't a new book. Of course I've learned my lesson, and I'll look more carefully before making any future purchases. BTW, some of John Sandford's early books are being reissued, but they are well marked as such.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Five Stars for Aleutian Setting, Three Stars for the Mystery 13. Juni 2005
Von L. Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Kate Shugak is a former Anchorage investigator who has recently moved to Denali National Park and begun working on freelance investigations. In "Dead in the Water", Kate finds herself going undercover to work as a deckhand on the crabbing ship "Avelda". Kate is supposed to be gathering background information on the ship's captain Harry Gault, in order to solve the disappearance of two other crew members the previous March.

As other reviewers indicate, the mystery is quite thinly plotted. However, I absolutely loved the description of the hard work and danger on the crabbing ship, and the wonderful story line of Kate meeting the young Aleutian girl who showed Kate the art of storyknifing. This is a craft where a storyteller tells a story and illustrates the tale with pictures drawn in the sand with an ivory knife.

I liked the Alaskan setting enough to definitely read more books in this series. If you're interested in immersing yourself in a book set in Alaska, read "Dead in the Water" for that. Just don't read it for the mystery.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Kate Tackles the Bering Sea 13. März 2004
Von Wendy Kaplan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
To read the Kate Shugak series is to immerse oneself, with great pleasure, into Alaskan lore, from native folktales to the modern hearty souls who populate its great expanses. "Dead in the Water," the third in the series, is the best so far as it melds Aleutian folklore (Kate, as readers know, is a native Aleut) with a modern-day mystery.
Working as an undercover agent to investigate the presumed murder of two young crewmen on an Alaskan crabbing vessel, Kate hires on as a crew member. The work is dangerous, grueling, back-breaking, and tough beyond measure as the crew battles high seas, horrible weather, ice storms, and even treachery from other fishing boats out to grab the same lucrative catch. Kate is no shrinking violet, and she can outdo anyone on board, given half a chance. But this is no ordinary ship. And its captain is either the most incompetent sailing man on the Bering or any other sea, or--as Kate suspects and must prove--up to no good in a very major way.
Putting herself in considerable danger, both from the job itself and from those who have a murderous secret to hide, Kate methodically sets out to find out who murdered the former crew members--and why.
The only thing missing from this wonderful tale is Kate's faithful half-wolf dog, Mutt, who I missed very much. Mutt is back on the Alaskan mainland, where Kate very much wants to be as well...and where the reader hopes she will return in one piece. A great yarn, a wonderful read. It leaves the reader impatient to read the next in the series!
