Give me a good mystery and I am happy!
Normally, I just stick with the authors that I am familiar with and love. I am a huge fan of Nelson DeMille, Lee Child, Vince Flynn and John Grisham. In between their books, I will try a new author, however I rarely invest in a new series. I started this series a few weeks ago because nothing new from my favorite authors was available. I started from the beginning and am now on book six. Mercy Falls is book five. I am sure that I will get them all because I am now invested in Cork and his family.
Something to be said about starting a series that has so many books already published, is that you can go from one book right on to the next without that long wait in between. I as so glad that I gave this author a chance. I am surprised that more people haven't purchased these books. I love them
Krueger's beautiful prose gracefully elevates the suspense. Great story and character development.
Narrator is not really in the same league.
Good until the end, then it leaves the listener hanging. I will have to read the next one, I suppose.
Every time I thought the story would conclude it took another twist. Krueger knows how to spin a yarn and keep you listening. Can hardly wait to start the sequel.
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.
My husband and I love this series by William Kent Krueger and usually "save" them for a long road trip to visit one of our kids. This one was no exception. Mercy Falls is number five in the series, and by this time we have grown to know and love the characters, the territory and the Indian legends. Cork is always the good guy, and in this book, he is once again sheriff, a job he both loves and hates. The ending is a cliff hanger . . . and my husband and I don't think we will be able to wait for our drive back home to start book six.
Not really - just didn't sit well with me.
Yes - but taking a break for now
I like David Chandler - he does a great job.
Cork and his wife seemed to be acting out of character and I didn't like the segue into the changes into Rose's life, whatever. Will take a break for now and the next book is not getting good narrator reviews. Up to this book I have enjoyed the series, but something about this one didn't set right with me -
I give a low rating because I end up dissatisfied. The setting close to a reservation and wonderful feeling of the lakes and woods are always a pleasure. The story moves between several dysfunctional families and human beings. The twists and turns of the story ate gripping and believable. But several are left dangling at the end and I have some difficulty working out who did what and why.
I like this author and will persevere, I may even read the second half of this book again to see what, if anything, I missed.
A series with good character portrayals and enjoyable nature descriptions with a little American Indian cultural history snippets thrown in. Excellent distraction for relaxation.
Great Minnesota Mystery!
This story, unlike the others before it, didn't wrap itself up in a neat bow at the end. It left you wanting more of the story. I couldn't wait to start the next in the series to see where it was leading.
David Chandler has come to be the voice of "Cork" for me. I love it!
