The Kate Shugak mystery series can be purchased online from a number of retailers. On her official website, the author Dana Stabenow lists various sellers of her books, including Amazon, Audible (a subsidiary of Amazon) and Barnes and Noble. The books are available in hard copy, e-book and audiobook formats.
Dana Stabenow's website also provides a helpful list of sellers for each individual Shugak novel. By navigating to the Kate Shugak Series menu on the site, users can view the full, chronological list of all 20 Kate Shugak books. Clicking the link for each title takes the user to that book's summary page and links to the sites selling that novel.
The prices of the novels vary depending on the books' formats and sellers. For those looking to purchase cheap copies of the novels, many Amazon merchants sell used copies of the books for discounted prices.
Hardcover books are the priciest across the board, while paperbacks are a cheaper, hard copy option. By and large, the e-book options are the cheapest purchase choice. As of 2015, Stabenow offers the e-book version of the first Kate Shugak novel, "A Cold Day for Murder," for free on her website and for a dollar or less through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and iTunes.
