Robert Sable Mysteries profile fictional Alaskan Trooper

           Alaska author Sean E. Thomas has created a new hero for lovers of crime and mystery novels set in the Last Frontier.  Mystery buffs can find suspense and mayhem in Sean’s first three novels: Dark Project, Dark Soul and Dark Gold.  Now, in his recently released novel, Dark Shaman, Thomas sends his hero, Robert Sable, an Alaska State Trooper, forth to solve the mystery of children missing in the Alaskan bush.  Thomas pits Sable against a force so evil that Sable may not escape with his life.  Most Alaskans have heard the rumors of a powerful ancient shaman.  “Dark Shaman” turns that legend into a fast-paced murder mystery in which Sable, with help from the FBI, investigates the ritual slayings of school children.  Rumors hint to an absurd idea that the children have been slaughtered by Auktelchnīk, a powerful evil shaman who has been somehow resurrected.  As more bodies turn up, Sable and his partners try to find the connections between the victims and their killer by interrogating local rapists, pedophiles and sexual deviants.  As they do so, someone begins killing off the suspects one by one.  Is this a new killer, an irate parent, or someone else?  Along the way, Sable encounters romance, a barroom brawl and a bevy of nasty characters who could only be found in Alaska.

There will be a book signing for Dark Shaman at Cook Inlet Books 
2:00 to 4:00 P.M., Saturday, 3 May 2003.
