    "Great Series..."

    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

    "Good Overall but incomplete."

    Both my wife and I agree that we do not like endings which are designed to get you to the next novel. This one left us feeling incomplete.

    "Hate a book that doesn't have a clean conclusion"

    Good until the end, then it leaves the listener hanging. I will have to read the next one, I suppose.

    "Just Keeps Getting Better"

    Krueger's beautiful prose gracefully elevates the suspense. Great story and character development.
    Narrator is not really in the same league.

    "Could hardly wait to listen to the next segment!"
    What made the experience of listening to Mercy Falls the most enjoyable?

    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.

    Story
    "Cliff Hanger with Cork"

    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.

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really - just didn't sit well with me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by William Kent Krueger again?

    Yes - but taking a break for now


    What about David Chandler’s performance did you like?

    I like David Chandler - he does a great job.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    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 -

    Story
    "quite the series"

    I've never been to Aurora, Minnesota but I might have to go visit, so much seems to happen in this small town in the northern part of the state. The author has quite the imagination and has created a series, a work of fiction, that is riveting in its suspense.

    You can't help but like the main character, Cork O'Conner, you feel for his wife, Jo, who seems to get the wrong end of the deal all too often, especially in this book although plenty in the beginning of the series. Throw in the Chippewa tribe, the criminals, the casino, the natural beauty and harshness of the land and the lakes or northern Minnesota and you've got quite the mix. Krueger does a great job of creating stories bringing all these elements into play.

    This story begins with Cork being the target of a hit, someone is trying to kill him. Cork is quickly caught up in a couple of mysteries that keep his team and he going all out all the time. A Chicago family is brought into the scene which has its finger into big time crime and is used to getting its way. The story takes Cork and his family to Chicago and ends with Cork on the run for his life which we'll find out about in the next edition in the series. But, hey, I was going to buy the next book no matter what so I don't mind the story being continued. In fact, I already know I'll be looking forward to the rest of the series as it comes to me.
