Publisher's Summary

The promise, as I remember it, happened this way.

Happy and content in his hometown of Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O'Connor has left his badge behind and is ready for a life of relative peace, setting up shop as a private investigator. But his newfound state of calm is soon interrupted when Henry Meloux, the Ojibwe medicine man and Cork's spiritual adviser, makes a request: Will Cork find the son that Henry fathered long ago?

With little to go on, Cork uses his investigative skills to locate Henry Wellington, a wealthy and reclusive industrialist living in Thunder Bay, Ontario. When a murder attempt is made on old Meloux's life, all clues point north across the border. But why would Wellington want his father dead? This question takes Cork on a journey through time as he unravels the story of Meloux's 1920s adventures in the ore-rich wilderness of Canada, where his love for a beautiful woman, far outside his culture, led him into a trap of treachery, greed, and murder.

The past and present collide along the rocky shores of Thunder Bay, where a father's unconditional love is tested by a son's deeply felt resentment, and where jealousy and revenge remain the code among men. As Cork hastens to uncover the truth and save his friend, he soon discovers that his own life is in danger and is reminded that the promises we keep - even for the best of friends - can sometimes place us in the hands of our worst enemies.

Catch all of our Cork O'Connor titles.

    "Taking a serious step backwards!"
    What did you like best about Thunder Bay? What did you like least?

    Fine story, but why, oh why, did they change readers? I loved David Chandler's narration but his guy is very difficult to listen to. I now need to decide if I will listen to the next four books or just skip to book 12 which is a return to Chandler's narration. I love the books and characters but, oi vey... it was laborious listing to Mr Schirner read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved learning about Henry's history and family.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Return to the services of David Chandler! It could have been better in almost every way, but Chandler is one of the best. Don't change horses mid-stream.


    Was Thunder Bay worth the listening time?

    Good question... I'm not sure yet. I liked the story but it was painful to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Use David Chandler as a narrator. Have him go back and re-do the four books that Buck Schirner!

    "gets too political."

    Didn't care for the narrator change. Also did not care for the gun control propaganda from a character who's history would not have given him these views. This series would have been over if the characters did not have guns to protect themselves.

    "Miss the previous narrator"

    A great book in the series, but I do miss the previous narrator. I see he is back in later episodes.

    "Please re-record with David Chandler!"

    While Buck is a good reader, his female and children's voices are a bit off. Also as many others have said he is not the voice of Cork!

    "jarring change of narrator"

    The change from David Chandler to Buck Schriner was jarring and distracting from the story. The production was also off by trying to have a different sound on phone calls. it was a little too much. I wasn't sure if everyone was a mix of Irish and Finnish. His accents and cadence left me wishing the book was done. it took me about 2/3 of the way book to adjust. I didn't care how Joe was portrayed but she, once again, didn't have a very important role.
    This book left me a little disappointed.

    "Read to the end of the reviews."

    I absolutely love this series. However why in the world did they change the narrator?! I listen and have become very accustomed to the narrator in the first 6 books and have purchased other books done with him as the narrator. I was extremely shocked to hear a new and not so talented person doing this book. I'm sure he's a great person but he can't do voices AT ALL. It has made it very hard for me to continue the series.

    "Henry 's History"

    Henry's narrative of events 70 years ago was one of the most moving passages in this entire series!

    "Fine addition to series"

    This book is interesting for the history it provides about Henry Mallou. Buck Schimer's performance, despite the complaints of other reviewers, is solid. He does a great job with the northern Minnesota accent, especially for Cork's character.

    Story
    "I miss the original narrator"
    Would you listen to Thunder Bay again? Why?

    maybe


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cork of course followed by Henry


    What about Buck Schirner’s performance did you like?

    I really have enjoyed his other work. There is nothing wrong with his performance here except he is not the voice of Cork that we have become familiar with. I assume this was an author's decision for whatever reason. It was a bad decision. I'm glad to see that after four more narrations, our real Cork is back.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    They always make me laugh and chuckle as well as keep me glued to them when the action starts!
