Last went into great detail when describing the Alaskan setting. The reader is given a very clear image of the surroundings especially in the National Park. Not only did he describe the climate, wild life and landscape, but he gave a detailed history of the park as well. This was definitely the strongest part of Unbearably Deadly and what kept my interest to continue reading.
Unfortunately these descriptions of the setting greatly overshadowed the mystery. It left little space to expand on any background information that might have been pertinent to solving the crime of what really happened to the deceased tourists.
I tried not to dwell on grammatical errors, but there were times where inconsistencies in the plotline and repetitive unnecessary dialogue became difficult to ignore. Although I kept reading I felt less invested in the story.
Unbearably Deadly is a mystery that had the potential to be a decent read, however the execution has hindered it to be so.
I was sent a copy of Unbearably Deadly by Jerold Last, from the author in exchange for an honest review.

But reader beware... First night I started this one it was rather late - only the knowledge that even if I stay up the night I am not going to finish it made me put it down at 40%. But like all good mysteries it gets harder to put down the further along you are and truth be told, the beginning is diluted by travelog and history and all that crap. I am one of those people who goes to an open buffet multiple times to get the different items - I dont like them mixing on my plate. So unlike some other reviewers here I am not so fond of travelog in my cup of whodunits. Admittedly, the history of gold mining in Alaska was relevant and provided some of the necessary background. So the second night I did finish it. At 3 AM! What can I say, could not put it down.
This is my first encounter with the dynamic duo. It would appear that hospitals must do well whenever Roger and Susan are after bad guys and it also would appear that they have no problems dispensing frontier-style justice. Much like Bollywood films of my childhood (they have largely, not all, gotten more sophisticated now), heroes and broad guys are very black and white. The heroes get momentarily in trouble and then quickly get the upper hand, boy do they ever!
I could probably find some faults with some of the avant garde tech stuff. The camera cannot be connected to a laptop by the internet inside a mine shaft. In a place where even outside the shaft there is no cell signal, how would one find "internet". Bluetooth is possible but that has so limited range that instead of wasting that power, one would just connect the camera with a cable. In reality it s not logical that any one would be sitting there and watching the laptop. So one would periodically retrieve the footage and look at it elsewhere. To do so, a laptop is totally unnecessary, one would simply provide a large enough SD card in the camera and exchange it on each trip.
I and my wife have been to Denali. But never stayed at the lodge. Needs to be rectified it seems. Did I say that I don't like travelogs with my mysteries?
The awaited return of dynamic detective duo Roger and Suzanne Bowman, for the first time takes them away from both their Southern California home, and their usual investigative stomping grounds, Latin America. This time they are requested by Roger' s new partner in the private detection agency to check up on the deaths of two of his good friends. All three were long-term undercover agents of the CIA in the Atacama Desert of Northern Chile. The couple were brutally attacked by a bear, on vacation in the Denali Forest in Alaska...or were they? The only known truth is that the two died, but why and how will have to wait for the expertise of Roger and Suzanne, who once again deliver an exciting, scenic, well-designed mystery.
