Publisher's Summary

Every married couple knows you don't go to bed angry. The corollary, Cork O'Connor realizes, is that you also don't say goodbye when you're mad. When the charter plane Jo O'Connor is on crashes over the mountains in Wyoming in an early winter storm, Cork deeply regrets the heated argument he had with his wife just before she left. An intense search is launched, but bad weather and the steep terrain hinder the efforts and soon the search is abandoned.

Several months later, still grieving, Cork is contacted by the wife of the man who owned and flew the charter plane. An unlawful death suit has been filed against the pilot's estate alleging that he had been drinking the night before the flight disappeared and his ability to fly the plane was impaired. But credible evidence suggests he was not flying the plane that crashed. And if he didn't fly the plane into the storm, then who did?

Soon, Cork is pulled deep into a dangerous web of corruption that takes him to the rugged, isolated outback of Wyoming and forces him into deadly confrontations with law officers on the take and murderous drug lords who create "safe havens" on Indian lands along the porous borders of the United States. But in the midst of the danger and deception lies the possibility that Jo's disappearance was not the end of her, that somewhere along the labyrinthine path of his search, maybe even in the broad shadow of Heaven's Keep itself, Cork will find her alive and waiting for him.

KRUEGER SHOULD NOT HAVE DONE IT

You just cannot kill off major characters and change the scope of all the books to come with out a vote of your faithful readers. I certainly vote no for this book.

Enjoy the storyline but not my favourite narrator

True to form novel from Kent Krueger.
Some unexpected turns which kept my interest going till the end. Not my favourite narrator as earlier books have different guy.

Made my cross country drive fly by

As a former northern Minnesota native I find comfort in his locations. This book was truly a great tale. Never felt like scanning ahead.

Good story keeps you listening!

Only slightly disappointed in logic failures and situational awareness from an experienced lawman. Still a fan! Looking for the next book!

Such a fine line between love and hate -loved it!

Not thrilled with the storyline but it was superbly written and leaves me anxiously waiting for the next chapter in the O'Connor family'slives.

A series that stays fresh

Any additional comments?

I am really enjoying this series. It's not the best written books I've ever read but they're good enough. What I find interesting is the way the author keeps reinventing the series. It's not always completely believable but, again, it's good enough. The author takes you on an interesting adventure in every installment and always includes the People living nearby in his stories. Refreshing. The narrator was changed along the way, not for the better but acceptable if not inspired. I recommend this series; it certainly isn't stagnant.

Another excellent Cork O'Connor story

What did you like best about this story?

Every book in this series reveals more of the character of Cork O'Connor. This book is no exception. The story is suspenseful and kept my interest until the end. I enjoy the return of the various recurring characters in each book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Buck Schirner?

I can't wait until this series goes back to David Chandler as narrator. Mr. Chandler's portrayal of the characters in this series is by far the best.

One of the best.iliked

I'm kind lost right now! I just finished the book and it left me feeling empty.
I don't care for Buck Schirner it's hard
To tell one voice from another even females. Please bring back the original narrator. It is a great book! It brought me back into Krugers series! he is a very good writer. enjoy Ed..
