From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. The action of Edgar-winner Stabenow's stellar second venture into thriller territory, in contrast to 2006's Blindfold Game, which was set largely in the frozen waters off Alaska, centers on the warm seas of the Florida coast near the Kennedy Space Center, where the latest space shuttle launch is to take place. Stabenow harnesses the strands of her story with consummate skill: the passion that propels a rogue terrorist on a crusade to strike a blow that will shatter American pride; the efforts of U.S. intelligence to thwart a bewildering array of foes; the rising careers of Capt. Cal T. Schuyler, the golden boy of the U.S. Coast Guard, and astronaut Kenai Munro, whose life ambition is realized when she's named to the shuttle crew. Stabenow proves equally adept at portraying the workings of a cutter, the complexities of a shuttle mission or the machinations of a terrorist. The result is entertainment and suspense of a high order. (Feb.)

Outstanding Praise for Dana Stabenow
“All the elements that have made the author’s signature Kate Shugak crime series successful shine in this fifteenth entry: Kate’s personal growth as a woman and as an investigator, the Alaskan environment in all its unforgiving beauty, and a mystery whose solution remains in doubt until the end.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review) on A Deeper Sleep
“Stabenow once again presents us with a cleverly conceived and crisply written thriller that provides a provocative glimpse of life as it is lived and justice as it is served on America’s last frontier.”
—The San Diego Union-Tribune on A Deeper Sleep
“A taut, atmospheric thriller . . . The author paints convincing portraits of masterminds, mercenaries, and CIA operatives, and jacks up the adrenaline with a high-speed ocean chase.”
—People magazine on Blindfold Game
“A tense and tautly written thrill ride that keeps readers hooked all the way to the explosive climax . . . By the time the plot kicks into high gear, the setting is firmly established as both authentic and believably dangerous.”
—San Francisco Chronicle on Blindfold Game
“Edgar winner Stabenow has crafted a taut, credible thriller that should win her a much larger audience. . . . Stabenow has established herself as a fine mystery writer, but she may have found her true métier with this excellent thriller.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Blindfold Game
“Every time I think Dana Stabenow has gotten as good as she can get, she comes up with something better.”
—The Washington Times
“An intelligent crime novel that reflects both [Stabenow’s] love of wilderness and her understanding of the complex questions of profit versus the purity of the frontier.”
—The Dallas Morning News on A Fine and Bitter Snow
“If you haven’t discovered this splendid North Country series, now is the time. . . . Highly entertaining.”
—USA Today on Hunter’s Moon

I'm just sorry Stabenow can't write as fast as I can read, because her characters feel like real people ... people I'd like to know. At this point, I bet she even writes a good grocery list.
If you like this one, I recommend you start at the beginning and read each of her series in order. Although each can be read individually, the history and personalities of her primary characters build throughout the series.
