Fire and Ice by Dana Stabenow (Book Review)

Stabenow, Dana. Fire and Ice. New York: Dutton, 1998.

This series began when the author's favorite editor moved to another publisher. Since her contract did not allow for spin-offs, a new trooper character was invented for this series. Liam Campbell, freshly demoted because he wasn't watching those under him as much as he should have, is sent to a remote Alaskan village. He literally walks off the plane into his first murder investigation. He encounters the former love of his life. Before he's even done with processing that scene, he is called to a shooting. I was not all that pleased with the adultery and romantic scenes. The characters did grow on me over the course of the book. I'll probably eventually get around to the second in the series, but it's not that high of a priority. I prefer the author's Kate Shugak series.  3 stars.
