This was a good book. The characters were interesting and the action kept your attention. I would read other books by this author.

This is a very well written book. It starts off with a PI looking for a missing person in Alaska, then with a scientific expeditions which the PI gets included in and then when the PI finds his missing person who is an ex police looking for his daughter held by traffickers. Always a good plot twist!

There is a mix of Alaskan culture and descriptions of the country included.

This was something different. There's three stories going on- scientists looking into a native Alaskan tribe's rituals, a detective investigating strange deaths, and a PI and an ex-cop caught up in human trafficking. While both the detective and scientists' missions involve wolves, it takes most of the book to get to where Race and Billings's story intersect with theirs. This story took some time for me to get through. The dialogue felt stilted and formal, and got wordy and repetitive at times. Some cuts could have been made to help the flow. The mythology about the wolf were interesting and there's some good action scenes. Says there's a sequel in the works. Not sure where it goes from here- I assume more of Race's cases, which could be interesting.

Review: <b>Alaska Deadly</b> by J. L. Askew 07/20/2023 3.5*

This was an Early Reviewer's Book. I thought it was interesting, entertaining, and adventurous. The characters were well developed and the story was organized and clear to follow. The story brings the reader to Alaska's mountains, the great wilderness, and some small villages. The reader even meets some Russians terrorizing criminals throughout the story. I liked the way it started with two sub-stories and connected enhancing the novel.
It started with a new young investigator, Race Warren on a missing person case that led him to a small village in Alaska. At the airport in Alaska, wasting no time Warren gets shot at. At this time he didn't have any knowledge who the shooter was or why they didn't want him there. Now he's on the run trying to find one of Alaska's small planes to take him to his destination. On this tiny plane is where he meets DR. Mark Dunbar, the head of a scientist team researching a cult that is known for animal shapeshifting into a mythic wolf. As you read on there is so much action, sometimes confusing, but it all comes together as you reach the end of the novel. The adventure and action just keep going on and on... All the suspense and mystery Askew describes make it a great thriller.
