Excellent second book by this author! I couldn't put it down!
Cork O'Connor heads into the wilderness with an unlikely search party to rescue a young country singer. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones looking and not everybody wants the woman to come out of the Boundery Waters area alive.
Excellent book. Krueger makes his characters as real and flawed and wonderful as possible.
Cork's saga continues. Really good "page-turner".
fun, quick read. If you are from MN and know the Boundary Waters it makes it even better because you can recognize some of the places they are talking about.
Excellent book! I've read all his books and each one is a page-turner. Minnesota author and his books are set in Minnesota. If you are from MN you will recognize many names and places. Also a lot of Native American perspective.
This is the 2nd book in the series. From the 1st chapter the drama begins in the search for Shiloh who's a country singer gone missing. I enjoy this book's reference to Native American's. Look forward to reading the 3rd book in the series.
I enjoyed this book so much that I will definitely read others in the series. I love the setting; the characters were credible and interesting; and there was lots of outdoor action. I am not ready to post this book to share because other family and friends are reading it!
This is the 2nd of the Cork O'Connor thriller/suspense series and I liked it much better than the first. Action takes place in the Quetico-Superior Wilderness as Cork and a cadre of both good and bad guys search for a
famous country western singer.
This entry in the Iron Lake series finds Cork O'Connor fighting for his life as he is drawn in to a web of deceit that involving a popular Native American musician and a California politician. Krueger does it again with his interesting characters and excellent plot development.
Former sheriff Cork O'Connor leads an expedition into the wilderness to hunt for a missing woman.
Set in Minnesota, this mystery takes you for a ride. It's sort of like a Tony Hillerman with snow.
good series to keep up with, usually outdoor adventures involved
An early William Kent Kreuger book featuring Cork O'Conner, who is asked by three men to help find Shiloh, a famous country singer, who is lost in the boundary waters of Minnesota and Canada. All three men claim to be her father. Kreuger is knowledgeable and sympathetic to the Native Americans in the area, and they are featured in all the books of his that I've read. There are characters to care about and the setting is interesting and authentic.
Second in the series featuring Cork O'Connor. This time Cork is asked by an old acquaintance to help find his daughter, supposedly missing somewhere in over a million acres of wilderness. Cork is reluctant as he doesn't think he can be much help, but decides if that were his daughter he would want someone to try. The situation turns very strange very quickly as two other parties appear, both claiming to be the biological father of the missing woman; and then the FBI turns up threatening all and sundry if they don't cooperate. There are multiple POVs in this story: Cork, his estranged wife Jo, and Shiloh, the missing woman. Each POV was given enough pages so I didn't feel like I was bouncing from one to the next, although Krueger ended a number of chapters with big cliffhangers. I also thought he did a good job disguising the real villain; although I knew someone in the search party was a bad guy, I didn't know who it was until the author revealed it (not my first time reading this book, but it was long enough ago I didn't remember any of it). Excellent sense of place with the foreboding woods, the lakes and river rapids, and the stories told by the young Anishinaabe boy add a lot of atmosphere. Like the first book it reads very quickly. There's enough backstory so that if you hadn't read the first it's easy to pick up the characters. Large body count and some gory bits but bottom line, it was very suspenseful. Good book.
Another exciting book by Cork O'Connor. This is a page turner!
