Several months later, still grieving, Cork is contacted by the wife of the man who owned and flew the charter plane. An unlawful death suit has been filed against the pilot's estate alleging that he had been drinking the night before the flight disappeared and his ability to fly the plane was impaired. But credible evidence suggests he was not flying the plane that crashed. And if he didn't fly the plane into the storm, then who did?
Soon, Cork is pulled deep into a dangerous web of corruption that takes him to the rugged, isolated outback of Wyoming and forces him into deadly confrontations with law officers on the take and murderous drug lords who create "safe havens" on Indian lands along the porous borders of the United States. But in the midst of the danger and deception lies the possibility that Jo's disappearance was not the end of her, that somewhere along the labyrinthine path of his search, maybe even in the broad shadow of Heaven's Keep itself, Cork will find her alive and waiting for him.

Not thrilled with the storyline but it was superbly written and leaves me anxiously waiting for the next chapter in the O'Connor family'slives.
I am really enjoying this series. It's not the best written books I've ever read but they're good enough. What I find interesting is the way the author keeps reinventing the series. It's not always completely believable but, again, it's good enough. The author takes you on an interesting adventure in every installment and always includes the People living nearby in his stories. Refreshing. The narrator was changed along the way, not for the better but acceptable if not inspired. I recommend this series; it certainly isn't stagnant.
Every book in this series reveals more of the character of Cork O'Connor. This book is no exception. The story is suspenseful and kept my interest until the end. I enjoy the return of the various recurring characters in each book.
I can't wait until this series goes back to David Chandler as narrator. Mr. Chandler's portrayal of the characters in this series is by far the best.
Give me a good mystery and I am happy!
August 15th I started my first book in the Cork O'Connor series, it is now September 11th and I am on book 10. I skip my favorite TV shows and talking on the phone so I can listen to my books. I am so happy that I gave this series a try. Just when you think that you have things figured out, here comes a curve ball or two or three... William Kent Krueger keeps you guessing. I hope that you give this series a try. Well worth the time and credits.
I would have given this a higher rating--good character development, interesting and different storyline, but unexpected and repeated religious themes and lessons are annoying when you are not interested in them. I think that audible books with a religious theme should have to indicate this somewhere. That said, the narrator was quite excellent.
This was my first Cork O'Connor mystery so I don't know how it is compared to the others, but to anyone who loves a good mystery, this is a good book to check out. It wasn't at all predicable which is of major importance, at least to me, so it succeeded at making me want to finish so I would know how it all ended. Still not the best book I've ever read but it was really well written and worth checking out for the good deal I got on it. The narration was great! Since the book is revolved so much around Indians, Schirner's accent really added to the whole story. It didn't feel so much like someone just reading you a book but more like you were actually listening in on real conversations.
I loved the interaction between Cork and his son Stephen
Stephen was my favorite character because you get to follow him as he develops from an awkward pre-teen to a sensitive, dedicated teenage son and brother.
This book kept me engaged and on the edge of my seat all the way through to the end of the book. There were unusual twists that were handled nicely.
I have read (and listened to) several Corcoran O'Conner books. I have not been disappointed yet and I thoroughly enjoy the informative look into reservation life and Ojibwa traditions and heritage.
