Kate Shugak is hired to go undecover to find out who is supplying illicit drugs to the workers at an oil company's base at Prudhoe Bay on the North Slope.

We find out who the bad guys are about 2/3 of the way through the book, up to which point the author is just immersing us in life up past the Arctic Circle, and she does a very good job of it, too. The obligatory scenes of danger and violence followed by the wrap-up and epilogue were competently done but didn't really provide as much of a thrill or emotional satisfaction as they could have. ( )

Another very good novel in the series by Stabenow. Marguerite Gavin is the narrator, and she is very good also.
4 stars, and recommended. ( )

Kate Shugak is a private investigator for the Anchorage District Attorney's office. In A Cold-Blooded Business her assignment is to go undercover at RPetCo, short for Royal Petroleum Company based in Prudhoe Bay up in the Arctic Circle. John King, CEO of RPetCo wants to know who has been dealing cocaine to his employees on company time. His main concern is overdoses are on the rise. There has even been a death by drowning linked to drug use. "Get that dope off my slope" he urges poetically.
As an aside, what irked me from the beginning is that Kate is supposed to go undercover as a roustabout on the slope but within her first week on the job she meets a former medic/acquaintance from another job and a trooper who knows her name. She has to lie and say she's no longer an investigator. Later she rushes to the first overdose on the job. Bursting into the room she encounters the victim is her cousin and he's just as surprised to see her as she is him. Finally, Cindy Sovaluk, a woman she meets in the sauna turns out to know her grandmother. So much for undercover when four different people know your name or are related to you! ( )

This is the fourth book in a series featuring Aleut investigator Kate Shugak. In this one, Kate goes undercover on Alaska's North Slope oil pipeline to find out who's been running drugs. Kate finds out soon enough that this is not going to be an easy job.

She soon discovers that pipeline workers have some incredible luxuries. Employees are provided with gourmet meals, steak twice a week and prime rib on Sunday, a fabulous pool, sauna, and a state of the art gym. Traditionally a loner, she soon starts to form relationships with her coworkers and isn't sure she really wants to know if they are part of the drug problems.

I really enjoy this series. I lived in Alaska for three years during the construction of the pipeline and the author does a great job of making sure all the landmarks are correct. She always gives the reader some insight into traditional Alaskan Native culture. This wasn't my favorite of the series but I still enjoyed it quite a bit and plan to continue the rest of the series.

Another really enjoyable case solved with Kate. this time she goes way out and up in to the pipeline and works for the company that her whole being hates. Amazing scenery and revelations.
She is such a fantastic character. Strong, independent, a happy loner and never cowers who she is. I love her and can't wait for the next book. ( )
