Clive "the Milkman" McCahon returns to his tiny Alaska hometown after a seven-year jail stint for dealing coke. He has a lot to make up to his younger brother, Miles, who has dutifully been taking care of their ailing mother - and, really, all of Cold Storage. Miles is a physician's assistant and the closest thing to a doctor this side of Sitka. But Clive doesn't realize the trouble he's bringing home. He's reformed now, and his dream is to open a bar-slash-church (a Cold Storage ordinance requires there to be as many churches in town as there are bars). Clive's vengeful old business partner is hot on his heels, a stick-in-the-mud State Trooper is dying to bust Clive for narcotics, and, to complicate everything, Clive might be going insane - lately, he's been hearing animals talking to him. Will his arrival in Cold Storage be a breath of fresh air for the sleepy, depopulated town? Or will it turn the whole place upside-down?

I'm Packing for Cold Storage Now!
What other book might you compare Cold Storage, Alaska to and why?
Similar authors would be Elmore Leonard, but the writing is smarter. Or Carl Hiasson but the characters are much more defined and enjoyable. The book has the same quirky humor as those authors but the story flows better and the funny parts seem more genuine.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I enjoyed the interaction between the brothers, the upstanding one is scared to make a wrong move and the scoundrel is fearless, I also enjoyed the bonding that took place between Clive and Little Brother, the distrusting scarred up pit bull. In fact the characters in this book are all interesting and I'm looking forward to a sequel in order to get know them better. The characters are quirky and funny.
