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.

I've fallen in love with the characters and each story pulls me in. This one is as good as the first in the series. I like how I can't figure out who did it. I also like that there are small moral lessons throughout the story. The narrator has become the voice of Cork, so please don't change. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it ended too soon. Off to download the next in the series!

William Kent Krueger is the award-winning author of the popular Cork O’Connor mysteries. In Purgatory Ridge, Krueger crafts a riveting tale which has ex-sheriff O’Connor on the case after a heated town debate turns deadly. The local Anishinaabe Indian tribe is furious to discover that Karl Lindstrom’s lumber mill is after a grove of trees sacred to tribal lore. So when the mill gets bombed, killing a man, the tribe is blamed. But O’Connor has a different theory.

This is my 3rd book by this author. He is a good waiter & story teller. This is not the type of story you can guess what happens easily. Narrator has grown on me and now I really like him. He seems to fit the story & characters. Looking forward to book 3 of this series.

For the past half century, John Keegan, the greatest military historian of our time, has been returning to the scenes of America's most bloody and wrenching war to ponder its lingering conundrums: the continuation of fighting for four years between such vastly mismatched sides; the dogged persistence of ill-trained, ill-equipped, and often malnourished combatants; the effective absence of decisive battles among some two to three hundred known to us by name.

What did you love best about The American Civil War?

This is well written and informative, and a great addition to your Shelby Foote narrative. I was OK with the accented narrator mis-pronouncing some American locations. If you are interested in being taught about the Civil War, this is a very good book.

In the third and last volume of this vivid history, Shelby Foote brings to a close the story of four years of turmoil and strife which altered American life forever. Here, told in rich narrative and as seen from both sides, are those climactic struggles, great and small, on and off the field of battle, which finally decided the fate of this nation.

This three volume narrative of the Civil War is simply outstanding. It is expertly written combining Union and Confederate war operations as well as political positions from both points of view. Worth every moment.

A dark and sweeping adventure, Dreamcatcher is set in the haunted city of Derry - the site of Stephen King's It and Insomnia. In it, four young boys stand together and do a brave, good thing, an act that changes them in ways that they hardly understand. A quarter-century later, as grown men who have gone their separate ways, these friends come together once a year to hunt in the woods of Maine.

If you are considering this title as your first for S King, you might want to reconsider. This is the second attempt I made on a S King novel and I won't do it again. In all fairness to the audio, the narrator is very good and enjoyable to listen to. The story however, is torturously long and scattered.

Powerful entertainment from the crime fiction superstar who combines riveting authenticity with witty, elegant prose. Best selling author Kathy Reichs "keeps the twists coming, and by the novel's climax, she has skillfully interwoven her many subplots and red herrings into a satisfying puddle of sex, sleaze, greed and gore," says Publishers Weekly.

I like K Reichs books and this is my first audio. The story line is interesting and believable, but now that I think about it, I really enjoyed the narrator. She made Tempe Brennan come alive and gave her some personality. In any event, I like Reichs and I enjoyed this audio.
