        Dana Stabenow was born in Anchorage and raised on 75 foot fish tender in the Gulf of Alaska She knew there was a warmer, drier job out there somewhere.


    1. It's not thriller or mystery book.Sex, romance book. Murder or thrill just very little part of it. Real thrill writers just touch little for the romance or sex, not pages full of graphic description. Couldn't finish it.

    2. My 1* to 5***** standard is different for crime & thrillers than it is for other categories. This is a terrific quick read crime story. The characters - primary and support - are all interesting, and those who are still alive will presumably be developed further in subsequent books in this series.I went back to my review of Stabenow's A Cold Day For Murder, of which I was quite critical (2**) Here's what I said about that book "After a long period of introducing characters and the Alaska l [...]

    3. This is a newer series from Dana Stabenow. Her Kate Shugak series has been very successful. This one is about Alaska State Trooper Liam Campbell. Liam's life is a mess after he ends a love affair and decides to make a better go at life with his wife, Jenny, and their little son only to have them taken from him in a drunk-driving accident. His son is killed instantly and Jenny is left in a vegetative state, sustained by life support.Liam has pretty much checked out of life when more tragedy srike [...]

    4. I read the first Kate Shugak book by this author and loved it. This was a later novel following Liam Campbell, an Alaskan State Trooper but I really didn't enjoy it half as much. The book was only 264 pages so I finished it because it was so short but to be honest the real story was so short that most of the pages seemed to just be filler and I skim read a good number of them - and didn't lose any of the story.At the end, everything conveniently tied itself up. So much so, that there was no real [...]

    5. I know people don't expect a lot when they buy a $0.99 e-book, but Dana Stabenow isn't exactly an unknown author. Getting this treasure for a mere $0.99 is just proof that it does pay to spend the time to go through the "cheap e-book" lists at and B&N to find books like this. My heartfelt thanks to the author for making it available for such a great price. I've never read this author's books and probably wouldn't have gotten around to reading any of her books if I hadn't stumbled across thi [...]

    6. This is a very good, well-written mystery/suspense. It's about an Alaskan State Trooper sent to a remote posting due to a department screw-up that happened under his watch. As the novel proceeds we learn Liam's back story along with the his present, rather sticky, situation. The novel isn't primarily a romance, it's a mystery novel, but the romantic element is an important part of the story. Don't look for a romantic HEA at the end of this novel. The story seems to be ongoing and the reader has [...]

    7. This was another free download from iBooks, and it was a refreshing change. Most of the books I've downloaded because they were free have been crap; this one was most definitely not crap.It took me awhile to get into the characters. I wasn't sure that I liked Trooper Liam Campbell, but by the end I was rooting for him. There are the usual suspects for a small town murder mystery. The fire and brimstone preacher and his meek and submissive wife; the town flirt; the beautiful yet damaged girl; the [...]

    8. I have never fantasized about living in Alaska, maybe a visit but not to live. But Liam Campbell is give an demotion from Sargent to Trooper, and sent to a coastal town in the south west part of Alaska. As soon as he lands in this desolate frozen town he's immediately thrown into a murder mystery. It takes him nearly 4 days to get his personal stuff organized, he doesn't even have a chance to get his wrinkled uniform cleaned and pressed.e that matters?Anyway it is a good mystery, oh yeah there i [...]

    9. This was novel had a good plot and the characters were a little interesting. I deducted a star because I tired of reading that this character or another was noticing another round, full breast with poky nipples instead of advancing the story. There weren't explicit sex scenes or profane language. It was just, "Meh."

    10. Looking back at the book blurb for Fire And Ice (Liam Campbell #1) by Dana Stabenow, I now realize this was a perfect summary of the book.:“Transferred in disgrace to this rough-and-tumble fishing town on the shores of Bristol Bay, Liam knows Newenham is the end of the line. It's also his last shot at getting his life back He's about to come in for a very rough landing. Stepping onto the airstrip at Newenham, Liam walks into a crime scene: a body torn apart by the propeller of a Piper Super Cu [...]

    11. I added one of Dana Stabenow's books to my wishlist not that long ago, it's still there.Last week, as I watched the mushers cross Alaska in the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, I got Fire and Ice as a free gift from the Iditarod Trail Committee. I should send them a heartfelt 'Thank You' because I really enjoyed this book, it was an entertaining and quick read. The characters are real, and likable. Liam Campbell, the new local state trooper, lands, literally, into the middle of a murder case. While tryin [...]

    12. Engaging mystery novel which begins Stabenow's Liam Campbell series (and available for only 99 cents as an eread!) Although I wasn't sure any new character could lure me away from Kate Shugak, Stabenow sets up Liam, his love interest Wy, and his new post after disgrace and demotion (for three days he can't even iron his one wrinkled uniform, much less find a house to rent in small-town Alaska). Stabenow's characters seem unusually unlucky to have so many good friends involved in murder mysteries [...]

    13. This was my first Stabenow book in any series, and I was impressed with this rich mystery novel and series-starter. The characters are unusual, vulnerable, and fully drawn. What Stabenow does with the setting is a tour de force of personal experience, keen descriptive detail, and absorbing atmosphere. I also enjoyed the moments of wry humor throughout the book, which adds some levity to the moments of pathos, which were handled well. It reminded me a *little* of the great TV show Northern Exposu [...]

    14. This is fast paced and keeps you guessing. This book is the first in The Liam Campbell series.Liam is an Alaskan state trooper who has just been assigned to a new town where it seems everyone who needs to escape from where they are winds up. He is taking over for another trooper who didn't care how he did his job as long as everyone followed his rules.Wy is a pilot who works as a spotter for the fisherman when they need her. Liam hasn't seen her in about two yearsand hasn't forgot her.There is a [...]

    15. Stabenow's establishment of setting, of Alaskan lifestyle, and development of character and plot are supreme.Liam Campbell - Alaska - State Trooper (demoted from sargeant) He's had a rough couple of years he was the trooper poster boy - in looks and intelligence, and was making his way up the ranks; he married his childhood friend, and had a baby and then two of his troopers under him ignored reports of a family driving in a storm, and the family froze to death, and under accusations of prejudic [...]

    16. B&N Synopsis:"Alaska State Trooper Liam Campbell, demoted and reassigned to the remote bush town of Newenham, literally steps off the plane into a murder scene. Dealing with death is never simple, but when the woman leaning over the body proves to be Liam's old flame, it’s evident that his new job is about to become much more complicated.From Newenham’s cast of eccentric—and sometimes hair-trigger—residents, to the intricate ballet of fishing boats rushing against time to catch their [...]

    17. A bit lightweight in substance. Very much of an introduction to the rest of the series but not very well done I'm afraid. It was part romance, part murder/mystery and there was so much back story that was irrelevant to the plot of this book that the whole thing just came across as a bit of a mish mash of nothingness.The main protagonist, Liam Campbell, seems to be a good enough character. He is suitably flawed and has a reasonable amount of baggage and seems to have some room for development and [...]

    18. Seven months ago, I was loaned this book and then I had to return it before I finished. This book was then put on my list of one that I wanted to read (finish). I really wanted to find out the ending.Liam Campbell is an Alaskan state trooper that is reporting to his new post. As he is stepping off the plane, there is a murder--standing above the victim is a previous lover of his, Wy. Next thing he knows is there has been a shoot out in this small town also.Several months later, I was able to get [...]

    19. Ms. Stabenow is a wonderful writer. Her knowledge of Alaska is from her own perspective, having lived there all her life. And she uses that knowledge exceptionally well. Admittedly, I am not as crazy about the Liam books as I am about her Kate Shugak mysteries, but that is a personal preference which has nothing to do with whether the Liam books are good. They are very very good. This is the first in the Liam series, and I highly recommend you read all of them. I have, and they are right up ther [...]

    20. A major life transition brings demoted and transferred Liam Campbell to a small town in Alaska. He must immediately become the only state trooper in town, as the man he replaces departs on the plane on which Campbell arrives, notwithstanding the new corpse on the tarmac that demands attention. Standing over that corpse is none other than an old flame of Campbell’s. Even before Campbell does so much as get is uniform unpacked or find living accommodations, more obligations turn up in the shooti [...]

    21. I recently went on a cruise to Alaska and I downloaded 2 of Stabenow's books because they take place in the Alaskan Bush. I thought this book had a slow start, but I was so active during my time in Alaska that I didn't have much time to read!Now that I'm home, I am enjoying the setting of the Bush, the look into the Yupik and other native Alaskans' way of life, and main the characters who are very independent and very human.The story centers around disgraced Alaska state trooper Liam Campbell wh [...]

    22. This is the first book in a second mystery series by the woman who writes the Kate Skugow mysteries. It is also set in Alaska and features some intriguing adventures. The protagonist is Liam Campbell, a cop. His girlfriend is a pilot. Both occupations are essential in a mystery set in Alaska - someone who has access to murder and someone with access to transportation. The writing is better than the introductory Skugow mystery - she seems to have gotten a little more glib and confident. The story [...]

    23. Okay, I'd call this a 3 stars with potential. I liked it enough to want to try another by this author, but I didn't absolutely love it. It's one of those books that just jumps right in without a long introduction - which I usually like, but this time I just felt a little lost at first. Once I got my bearings, it seemed to move at a decent pace. It just didn't grab me like some books. The whole book is told from Liam Campbell's point of view. I think I might have liked it better from the female l [...]

    24. c1998. I enjoyed this book much more than A Cold day for Murder. The murder/mystery was still pretty straight forward but I never thought that catching herring could be so exciting.riously this was one of the most exciting passages I have read for a while. Go figure? Definitely a novel more dependent on the place and the way of life which is, for me, completely new and unknown. FWFTB: Alaskan, plane, native, rugged, dead. FCN Liam Campbell, Wyanet Chouinard, Bob DeCreft, Cecil Wolfe. "He himself [...]

    25. Alaska State Trooper Liam Campbell starts this book completely out of his comfort zone. He is dropped into an Alaskan community with hints of Cicely (Northern Exposure). The community is close knit and quirky and Liam does not appear to be quick on the uptake, although by the end of the novel he has figured out who did whom in, even if the only one who is arrested has the entire town (and Liam) rooting for a light sentence. I liked Liam, and enjoyed watching him fumble his way through learning a [...]

    26. I love Ms. Stabenow's writing, but for some reason had never started the Liam Campbell series. When I found out the new Kate Shugak book would feature a crossover plot with Liam, I decided to read all four books before the new Kate was released. (I may not make it, but I'm close.) What I enjoy about this series are the aviation scenes and plots, the characters, and the descriptions of Alaska. I also enjoyed Ms. Stabenow's subtle changes between the two series. The Campbell series feels more edgy [...]

    27. Liam Campbell, a disgraced Alaska Trooper steps off the small plane in Newenham, Alaska only to find that a murder has occurred just before his arrival and his former lover is a possible suspect. He then has to handle a shooting in a bar and a shooting at the post office before he can even get his uniform on or find a place to live. Such is life in this small fishing town where during Liam's first week he has to investigate two murders that seem to be connected but how?Great characters and fast [...]

    28. First sentences, "Liam boarded first and watched the rest of the passengers troop down the aisle. It was a full load, a disparate group that he had already typed and cross-matched with their potential for future crime. There was the Alaskan Old Fart, short, dark, a grin one part mean to two parts pure evil, who had poacher written all over him. There was the tall man with a shock of white hair and his green-eyed daughter, who would both of them have helped the Old Fart skin out whatever he took [...]

    29. e-book It wasn't 594 pages, since there was an excerpt of the second book in the Liam Campbell series. This Alaskan state trooper, whose wife is in a fatal coma and son killed by a driver, has been demoted at his previous posting, and comes to the fishing community of Newenham where, before he can get his uniform on, he is faced with a murder at the airport. By coincidence, his old flame Wy Chousinard lives here and flied out of the airport. She spots herring for the one day fishing for a skippe [...]

    30. While I do not like these quite as much as the Kate Shugak series, I do enjoy them immensely. Every time I pick up a book by Dana Stabenow, I want to go back to visit Alaska again and see parts that I was not able to see the last time. Liam Campbell is an intriguing character, and the cast that STabenow assembles around him is great, in some ways I prefer the supporting players, especially Bill the bartender/magistrate and Moses the Shaman/Tai-chi instructor. The plotting is crisp and moves alon [...]
