Not that I know of.
I love the way the characters are "real". Credit goes to the author and reader on that.
Twist and Turns in the story
Seemed sorta realistic
He brings the characters to life with different speech patterns and dialects.
Starting 2nd book is series now.
Every time I thought I'd figured out what was going to happen he throws in another curve. It kept me thinking and I like that.
Cork, without a doubt is my favorite character. Flawed, vulnerable but tenacious to a fault; I couldn't help but like him and, to some extent, identify with him.
Not a fan of Cork's wife but it's easy to feel antagonistic to her.
I'll be reading the rest of the series as long as they are as good as Iron Lake.
Story was weak and predictable.
I actually tried the next book in the series.
The story might have been better with a different narrator.
I have been spoiled by listening to all of the James Lee Burke books and the Craig Johnson series.
Just stumbled across this series while looking for a good mystery. I gave it a try and really enjoyed it. The narration was done well. He did sound like John Wayne to me a couple of times. It kept my attention, and I plan to listen to the next one. The main character, Cork, was believable and someone that was easy to like.
I enjoyed the development of characters, and knowing this is a series made me happy to get to know them all.
Exciting and believable.
Great chases on ice. I can't pick just one and describe it so it won't give too much away.
Yes, kept me awake much later at night than I should have been.
Preparing to read the second book, knowing I won't be disappointed if it is anything like the first.
I read a lot of mysteries and this one was just okay. I paid $4.95 for the privilege of listening to it and that was about what it was worth -- if i'd used a credit or paid full price I would have returned it. The characters are okay but somewhat cliched. I never felt connected to Cork or any of the other main characters (before this I read one of Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache books, which I loved). I found the writing a bit stilted and the confrontation scene implausible. Based on the reviews I read here, I had expected something much more compelling. With a good mystery, I can barely stop listening; this one I had to force myself to finish. This author was compared to Tony Hillerman by other reviewers but I don't see that, myself.
No, I love mysteries but probably won't read any more from this author.
The read was just fine.
It wasn't terrible, it just wasn't particularly good. I would have loved to find another series to read.
Listen to Audible daily on long commute.
I would recommend this book to a friend if they were looking for a listen that would keep them riveted but not so much they can't drive thru traffic and not miss something.
I am currently listening to book 3..so yes.
I was pretty impressed with the woodland scenes..the suspense while in deep woods was pretty authentic.
People that don't mind a sad ending.
There were no wholes. The characters were good.
The ending was unsatisfying.
The interaction between the main character and Molly.
Sadness and disappointment.
Mid-60s; love true stories of endurance.
No, but I would recommend it.
The author kept my interest & kept me guessing.
When Kork confronts the murderer.
