Publisher's Summary

Part Irish, part Native-American, Sheriff Cork O'Connor serves the remote territory of Tamarack County, Minnesota. But big trouble is brewing: a powerful man believes O'Connor killed his son. Now there's a price on the sheriff's head and a bullet in his leg. He finds refuge with his cousin, Jewell, and her teenage son, Ren, in their tiny Michigan town. But when Ren and his friends are threatened, O'Connor must risk his cover to find out why.

Copper River opens with a terrifying scene that sets the tone for the suspense that grows stronger with each succeeding chapter. The narrator's taut performance underscores O'Connor's vulnerability and his vigilance.

Author William Kent Krueger has won two Anthony Awards for his gripping Cork O'Connor mysteries. Set in remote areas of the northwest, each book in the series launches the Minnesota lawman into challenges that push his endurance to new limits.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Solving Murders on the Run"

    Cork is on the run with a price on his head, suspected of murder himself . . . so he runs to his cousin, Jewell, in Michigan . . . where he finds little solace. The mystery continues to unfold, and its as good a story as the first books in the series.

    "Great Series..."

    I am flying through this series. There is always a mystery within a mystery, complex and interesting. I pride myself on figuring out the "who done it" in movies, as well as books. These books keep me guessing and that is a good thing. Plus, the characters are becoming very important to me as they develop. Can't say enough good things!

    "OUTSTANDING! All Around!"

    This wonderfully suspenseful, flirty, teasing story between Cork and his delightful assistant was refreshing. Cork remains a faithful family man while away from his wife and children without losing the ability to accept and respect a lovely "Jason Bourne"-type-abilities partner. This story was different. The loving and altruistic focus on a much neglected segment of our society was delightful. WKK portrayed youth truthfully while emphasizing their intelligence, resourcefulness and loyalty with great respect. I love all the mysteries so far, but I'd have to say this is one of my favorites.

    "Like going home"

    I was assigned to an Air Base outside Marquette, MI, met and married my wife there and our oldest daughter was born there. Listening to this extremely well written story brought back the people of the "UP" and the beautiful country side and of course Lake Superior in all it's majesty.

    Story
    "A Twist on the Usual"
    Any additional comments?

    I didn't think I would be happy with a WKK book that left out most of the usual characters and was not set in familiar Minnesota but of course I shouldn't have worried. There was still the same suspense, albeit with mostly new people. Actually, I kind of wish Cork could have stayed with his cousin and her son and that Dina would become his assistant. The story has such interesting characters that I might miss more than the Aurora citizens,. But I I assume we'll be headed back to the Boundary Waters area and I'll love that too.

    Story
    "Great Minnesota Mystery!"
    Where does Copper River rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am reading the Cork O'Connor mystery series as soon as I can get them with my two-per-month membership. They are all great!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Copper River?

    I like how this one continued on from the last book. It is not bad that most of the others wrap themselves up in a nice tidy bow at the end of each book. But this story was a continuation of the one before it. Couldn't start it fast enough!
