Author(s): Dana Stabenow
In Alaska, somebody disappears every day. Hunters who head into the wilderness...Fishermen who brave the great rivers...Tourists who attempt to do both. But lately too many people have disappeared. And Kate is about to discover it's got something to do with the recent discovery of the world's second-largest gold mine in her very own backyard.
