Murder Over Kodiak by Robin Barefield

Jane is standing on the dock awaiting arrival of the float plane.  Her assistant has gone to gather some clams they can test to see if that was what killed a woman who recently died.  The plane is overdue.  The longer it's overdue, the more she worries.  She didn't go because she's afraid to fly but now she feels guilty.  She hopes Craig makes it back safely.  He doesn't...

The author kindly shared a copy of this book with me for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

The description of the Kodiak area makes the story a pleasant read even if it's about murder.  That's beautiful country up there.

When Jane and the owner of the charter plane find it, it's apparent it has been blown up.  Who was the target and how did the bomb get on board?

It seems everyone on board except her assistant and the pilot had enemies.  One of the passengers was a Senator.  One owned the cannery.  One made business deals that unemployed a lot of people.  Any of them could have been the chosen victim but why kill them all?

As Jane asks questions, she finds herself getting answers she doesn't like.  She liked the Senator's son but he thinks she has the briefcase his parents had with them.  She tells him no but he doesn't believe her and there are bad men after him.  He gives her name up and now they're after her.

There's plenty of action, lots of danger and enough odd and maybe crazy people to keep your attention.  You can visit Alaska, learn about the flora and fauna and solve a mystery all at the same time...
