Book Description

Inupiat police officer Ray Attla joins two of his police buddies for a three-day caribou hunt in the Alaskan Bush country. But when gear and supplies are lost, the trio fishes for food and pulls in the remains of a human head. Ray assumes the deceased fell victim to a tragic accident -- until he and the party are dodging bullets. Fleeing on foot to an archaeological dig, Ray suspects that unearthed artifacts are not the only remains to be uncovered. Coincidentally, or at the hands of the Inupiat gods, Ray encounters a young Athabascan girl who is gifted with a "special sight". The girl's visions arm Ray with fragments of information and he follows her lead into the wilderness to hunt a cagey killer who has declared open season on the police officer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Season of Death by Christopher Lane April 4, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As Ray and his buddies, Billy Bob and Lewis leave on their hunting trip, he thinks he hears his wife tell him they are going to have a baby. He is not sure about fatherhood and, when the gear gets dumped in the river, he is not sure about this hunting trip. Then they find a head without a body. The plot is well-constructed and entertaining but the attempt at dialect for Lewis and Billy Bob is annoying. Fortunately, Ray is the smartest one in the group and the trip he takes the reader on is most entertaining. Somewhat similar to John Straley in characterization but much more action. I found it worth the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Author Knows His Stuff ! December 12, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Inupiat officer Ray Attla, against his better judgement, goes hunting with his 2 friends also Barrow policemen Lewis and Billy Bob. Ray finds himself stranded in the wilds of the North Slope of Alaska with most of his equipment at the bottom of a lake courtest of likable but inept Lewis, and Billy Bob, a Texan transplant who doesn't have a clue of what survival in the Alaskan bush is all about. To complicate matters they find a severed head. Ray must somehow figure out how to get his friends out of the bush alive,and solve the mystery of the head despite being hunted by the bad guys. A very entertaining book. The author has impressive knowlege of the Alaskan bush and native Inupiat culture. Being a transplanted Alaskan myself, I can vouch from experience that the depiction of the native dialect was realistic. An excellent book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lane not up to the par of Elements of A Kill April 4, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Police officer of the north, Ray Attla makes his second appearence in Season of Death. This time he is away from the high crime of the Yukon and on a journey with his friends into the Alaskan wilderness.
With the help of a dopey guide Attla and two friends set out into the wilderness. Once there occurances of mistakes leaves the three short on supplies and low moral. Then they come across a skull with a bullet hole in it. After they visit an archaeological dig Attla suspect that the skull is not from the past but is a recent murder vicitim.
From that point on the reader is pulled into a game of cat and mouse with Attla and a loco local.
