Publisher's Summary

"One of today's automatic buy-today-read-tonight series...thoughtful but suspenseful, fast but lasting, contemporary but strangely timeless." (Lee Child)

In the extraordinary new Cork O'Connor thriller from New York Times best-selling and Edgar Award-winning author William Kent Krueger, the lives of hundreds of innocent people are at stake when Cork vanishes just days before his daughter's wedding.

Since the violent deaths of his wife, father, and best friend all occurred in previous Novembers, Cork O'Connor has always considered it to be the cruelest of months. Yet his daughter has chosen this dismal time of year in which to marry, and Cork is understandably uneasy. His concern comes to a head when a man camping in Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness goes missing. As the official search ends with no recovery in sight, Cork is asked by the man's family to stay on the case. Although the wedding is fast approaching and the weather looks threatening, he accepts and returns to that vast wilderness on his own.

As the sky darkens and the days pass, Cork's family anxiously awaits his return. Finally certain that something has gone terribly wrong, they fly by floatplane to the lake where the missing man was last seen. Locating Cork's campsite, they find no sign of their father. They do find blood, however. A lot of it.

With an early winter storm on the horizon, it's a race against time as Cork's family struggles to uncover the mystery behind these disappearances. Little do they know, not only is Cork's life on the line, but so are the lives of hundreds of others.

A taut, suspenseful thriller, Manitou Canyon features everything readers love in a Cork O'Connor novel: a dramatic Northwoods setting, an intriguing view of the Ojibwe culture, an enigmatic crime, masterful storytelling, and more than a few surprises.

    "I love Cork"

    I've never really been into this genre of book. Then I read "Ordinary Grace" by William Kent Kruger and I went hunting for any other books by him. That is how I got introduced to Cork O'Conner and I was hooked. I love how Mr. Kruger writes. He draws you into their lives and you feel like you know them. They are flawed, but that's part of why I love them. He always spins a good tale. I also appreciate that the characters grow and age as the series progresses. And David Chandler! He is the perfect narrator for this series. There were some in the middle done by a different narrator and I had to force myself to listen. David Chandler is my narrator crush. He makes each character sound distinct without it being a distraction.
    I can't wait for the next Cork O'Conner! (And if you haven't read Ordinary Grace, do it now).

    Story
    "Barbara in Memphis"

    Mr. Krueger, as usual, has written another example of excellent story telling. I have read every book he has written and have been waiting for this with child like enthusiasm. It has not disappointed, the story was riveting, new areas and characters, but still my old friends I so enjoy traveling with through the mysteries .
    I will be recommending this book to all my family and friends. One of the best things about Mr. Krueger's writing is he doesn't mess it up with excessive violence, just enough to get his point across, or profanity. I would enjoy it just as much if there were no profanity, but I won't fault him for the few words that were used if he thought them necessary.
    My two favorite characters are of course Cork and Henry, so very glad both are still strong.
    Thank You Mr. Krueger for an exciting and beautifully written story, I look forward to your next book.
    God Bless you and your's.

    Story
    "Indian culture and mystery"

    Story relied heavily on certain cultural and Indian religious beliefs. This can be interesting and/or tedious. The plot is a bit contrived but overall entertaining. One wonders where Krueger will go next with story line. Let's hope he doesn't do one of the principal characters In as was done with Joe. Improbable and disappointing.

    "Enjoyable"

    As always Chandler delivers a strong performance. Cork O'Connor mysteries are comforting like an old comforter and a cozy fire. The story was good although the plot was a bit predictable
    The author raises the sobering issues surrounding the wholesale destruction of our planet by greedy small minded people. The best parts for me are the wilderness scenes.

    "Manitou Canyon"

    I enjoy William Ken Kruger's books and this was good.

    I had to listen on Kindle Fire so I could set speed at 2x normal because I almost feel asleep at regular speed.
