Another sensible writer--very well written to keep you interested throughout the entire book, even if you don't like anything along the political line of reading this one will keep you glued to the end!

I've read and enjoyed most of the Crok O'Connor mysteries. This is a stand alone, and I thought it was well done.

Not in the "Cork" series. The setting is Mpls-St.Paul area. Secret Service agent is to protect the wife of President who is in danger because of bureaucratic shenanigans. I liked interwoven plots.

William Kent Krueger is an amazing story teller, that gives us believable deep rich characters that we can easily relate to. I guess I had no way of knowing, but I was saving one of his best for my final read that he had penned. Now to date I have read all of his amazing books and will have to wait patiently for each new one to be published. This book "The Devil's Bed" is one of two of his stand alone books, along with "Ordinary Grace", after reading both I wish he would do more of this. Still his series about Cork O'Connor/sheriff turned private investigator, I look forward to each in the series! It is like picking up an old friend, as I have grown to love all of the characters involved in the series! "The Devil's Bed" to be honest I saved for last thinking it would not be my cup of tea as it involved politics, the Secret Service, and the federal government. Well it turned out to be one of my favorites, guess I was actually saving one of his best for the last just not knowing it. The characters are well developed, the story well told, the suspense is intense causing the pages to flow with ease! Along with the story and the characters he always give us plenty of life's learnings along the way. At the end I always like to sit back and reflect and take it all in. Again with his immense talent I hope there are more stand alone books in the future for William Kent Krueger. My advice if your hooked on his Cork O'Connor series, don't let this one pass you by, as you will miss out on one of his best!!
