Alaska State Trooper Nathan Active must figure out what connects a dead hunter on a remote Arctic lake with a year-old fatal plane crash in the Brooks Range and a fire that killed eight people.
Stan Jones is a native of Alaska. He has worked as an award-winning journalist and a bush pilot. He is the author of three previous mysteries in the acclaimed Nathan Active series.
“In the fourth book of this enchanting series set in Alaska ... [Jones has] created a richly populated universe you’ll be sorry to leave.”—People
“Chilling.... Fascinating.”—USA Today
“Fans of Tony Hillerman’s Jim Chee novels will appreciate the direct, wistful storytelling style of Stan Jones. And if life in northwest Alaska seems bleak with its poverty and hard cold, the strong bonds connecting Nathan Active to the people he serves and lives with have their own appeal. Most of all, Village of the Ghost Bears is a solid crime story—one good for any armchair detective.”—Sacramento News and Review
