A Fatal Thaw - Dana Stabenow


This audiobook is narrated by Marguerite Gavin and must be one of her early narrations because her voice is very young and actually sounds different. I listened to the first book in this series that was narrated by her years later. The thing I'm liking most about this earlier version is she gives Kate the gravely voice that's mentioned in the book. In the first book the director must have talked her out of it. Now I understand why Kate can no longer sing.

And even though Kate is known for having been a good police officer or whatever her title was, twice her dog has saved her in this book alone. I think Mutt is the one that should get all the credit for stopping the shooter and for saving Kate after the earthquake. She even found Kate's backpack after the avalanche. This is some spectacular dog!

I gave it a 4 star rating, but I was a little disappointed with the ending. The party seemed more spiritual and meaningful than the mountain trek.
