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.

Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!
Wow! This listening experience grabs you fast and holds you hard! The whole Cork O'Connor series is great to read or listen to, but this one is particularly suspenseful and heartbreaking.
Just be careful if you're driving. You'll want to make the trip longer and longer because you just can't bear to stop yet!
My problem is not with WKK here unless he was involved with the recording production. I have listened to all but 3 of WKK's books now. The ones on here, at least. I love all of them. I even like all the readers and I don't even think my complaint is with Buck Schirner here. He does a great job...but I also liked all the Craig Johnson series of Walt Longmire novels and I am VERY accustomed to George (Gold Standard Narrator) Guidall talking about Ab sir ROH ka County and in this book there must have been 200 instances of Ab sarra kuh mountains. Even if there is a chance this version was right I did all the other Longmire books first. It was worse than a movie with a bunch of "Call 555 3495"s in it. If this is my only complaint then it means I am very happy with it and when a picky person is happy you should have no hesitation about buying. I am sad that I only have 3 more WKK books before I have to put him on my list of "Waiting for him to write another book" authors.
Jo was a good character but I understand why she had to be retired.
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.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
"Heavens Keep" takes place in Wyoming..home of Walt Longmire..what an opportunity for 2 great authors to get together with two of my favorite characters..Walt and Cork O'Connor. Maybe then the name of the mountain range that Cork wanders thru searching for Jo would have been pronounced correctly. As it was, the mispronunciation was consistent but grating.
New to the series in his second book is Narrator Buck Schimer. Since his voice is quite similar to David Chandler, there isn't a glaring difference, though Schimers "Henry" is very different.
I enjoyed this episode very much. It was so totally different from the previous novels and this added a diversion that needed to come..plus a dramatic change of characters and addition of a couple of new characters.
Finally, I have very much appreciated the maturing of O'Connors youngest child in Kreugers writing. Kids don't stay the same, yet so often authors 'insert cute 6 year old here' for some family and never let the kid grow up..or we meet the child only as a grown up, with decades of back story we'll never know as readers. Kreuger either is or will be a great dad some day if he treats his own kids the same way as Cork and Stephen interact.
This entire series is well worth your credits!
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.
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
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.
