Publisher's Summary

Drawing strong comparisons to the work of James Lee Burke and Tony Hillerman, William Kent Krueger’s Cork O’Connor mysteries never fail to please fans.

The Quetico-Superior Wilderness: more than two million acres of forest, white-water rapids, and uncharted islands on the Canadian/American border. Somewhere in the heart of this unforgiving territory, a young woman named Shiloh - a country-western singer at the height of her fame - has disappeared.

Her father arrives in Aurora, Minnesota, to hire former sheriff Cork O'Connor to find his daughter, and Cork joins a search party that includes an ex-con, two FBI agents, and a 10-year-old boy. Others are on Shiloh's trail as well - men hired not just to find her, but to kill her.

As the expedition ventures deeper into the wilderness, strangers descend on Aurora, threatening to spill blood on the town's snowy streets. Meanwhile, out on the Boundary Waters, winter falls hard. Cork's team of searchers loses contact with civilization, and like the brutal winds of a Minnesota blizzard, death - violent and sudden - stalks them.

What the Critics Say

“Krueger’s writing, strong and bold yet with the mature mark of restraint, pulls this exciting search-and-rescue mission through with a hard yank.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "Love Krueger"

    I’m thrilled that I’ve found a series that I can use as my go to listen when I am just not finding a book that is speaking to me. After a few clunker audiobooks choices, I decided to head back to Minnesota to the Canadian/American border for another Cork O’Conner story. It turned out to be a perfect decision for gliding back into another one of these series was akin to flopping in my favorite chair with a cup of cocoa. I will be savoring my stash of series because of them.


    This second in the series takes place in the Quetico-Superior Wilderness. It was especially enjoyable to catch up on some of the familiar characters that were in the previous novel. The unique characters that were brought in for this novel were a tad too unique. They verged on cheesy, yes, but I am mostly interested on the repeating core characters. A popular singer seeks seclusion in the boundary waters. An increasing amount of people feel the need to find her. When it appears that she is in danger, Cork and associates step in. This novel contained just the right amount of twist and turns and adventure. I enjoy the spiritual undertones and the folklore that doesn’t feel like hullaballoo or nor is it over dished or preached.

    "Ugly Events in a Beautiful Area"

    First time I read Kreuger. As Minnesotan I was impressed. Well written and well read. The Native American backdrop enhances the book's power.

    "Very good mystery novel."

    I found this book to be well written and well narrated. For the plot and characters I find no reason to deduct a star. The same holds true with narration. This is my second book by this author and I liked it equally as well. I'll continue reading her books by adding one to my wish list.

    "Native American mystery"

    I enjoyed this just as much as I enjoyed the first book in the series, "Iron Lake."
    I also liked how the mystery kept me guessing. The setting in Boundary Waters of northern Minnesota was great. I liked the main characters, especially Cork O'Connor.

    The plot twists and turns and is a great suspense. I look forward to reading future books by William Kent Krueger. Excellent job by narrator David Chandler!
