Mechele is young, attractive, and looking to cash in on her aesthetic assets when she moves from New Orleans to Alaska in 1994 to earn money for college tuition. Her charms ensnare the affections of three men, and the combined effects of jealously, lust, and greed take a deadly turn in this true crime story. Before a murder in the woods shatters her contented life, Mechele works as an exotic dancer at the Alaska Bush Company, where she spends her days pleasing a procession of hard-working men. John, Scott, and Kent are simultaneously smitten with Mechele, and offer affection in the form of lavish gifts and ultimately engagement rings. While the three men begin their affairs on the same path, violent murder blasts apart their parallel lives. One of the trio is shot in the back; another is accused of the murder. Dead Man's Dancer follows this murder case from 1996 throughout Mechele's tumultuous trial in 2006 that becomes a nationwide sensation. Shocking in its detailed portrayal of murder and convoluted love affairs, Dead Man's Dancer excites horror in readers that lingers far after the last page is turned.

Anyone curious about what drew people like Christopher McCandless (the subject of Into the Wild) and John Muir to Alaska will find nuanced answers in Frontier Romance, Judith Kleinfeld’s thoughtful study of the iconic American love of the frontier and its cultural influence. Kleinfeld considers the subject through three catagories: rebellion, redemption, and rebirth; escape and healing; and utopian community. Within these categories she explores the power of narrative to shape lives through concrete, compelling examples—both heart-warming and horrifying. Ultimately, Kleinfeld argues that the frontier narrative enables Americans—born or immigrant—to live deliberately, to gather courage, and to take risks, face danger, and seize freedom rather than fear it.

Bering Sea villagers raid a foreign trawler fleet...a mysterious explosion rocks Juneau…a state ferry fires a bowling ball at a cruise ship…and a beautiful ex-newswoman takes off her clothes to defuse a tense standoff between state and federal troops. The time is the not-too-distant future. The whole world is watching. A new President is rewarding environmentalists who put her into the White House. She imposes harsh new federal controls on the northern state, and Alaskans are losing jobs, personal freedoms – even their lives. Their anger at bureaucrats and politicians in Washington DC is growing by the day. As a rebellion spreads, Governor Jimmy Pender tries to calm the rebels. He recruits Colin Callihan, a disillusioned geologist who has retreated into a boozy haze after the death of his wife in a plane crash. But it is too late for peacemaking. Events quickly spin out of control, and Callihan finds himself leading a secessionist movement he was hired to stop. Adventure, romance, humor, and politics run amok in this tense novel that rushes to an unexpected conclusion like a wild wave crashing onto a rocky Alaska shore.
