A Deeper Sleep is the fifteen volume in
the Kate Shugak series, so the series is likely to be familiar
to many readers at this point. However, the nature of series

that lies exactly on the 180th meridian is neither east nor
west, but step a foot on either side and you are either at the
most westerly point on the map or the most easterly!).
