Publisher's Summary

In William Kent Krueger's "finest work" (Michael Connelly), detective Cork O'Connor unravels a mystery for his old friend, Henry Meloux, only to get caught in the blistering crossfire of jealousy and revenge.

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, an 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 adventure 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.

Wow - one of the most compelling stories about Cork o’Connor

This book is number seven in the series, and I’m thinking right now that it’s been one of the best! Mind you, when I read number eight, I think the same thing about it, LOL! As a rule, my favorite book is the one I’m reading at that moment! So many twists and turns in this one that I did not see coming, and David Chandler is simply amazing as the narrator. Chandler also reads the Joe Pickett series, which is another outdoorsy Type of book, and he reads them beautifully. I enjoyed this one immensely, and I can highly recommend it

A really, really satisfying read/listen.

Great transitions from past to present and back again. Terrific balance of exposition and tension, heart and conflict. Measured, highly effective narration by David Chandler.

Best one of the series to this point, but ...

I was really hooked on the Cork O'Connor series and thought it would develop into one of my favorite series of all time. As I was listening to Thunder Bay, I thought this was the best one yet until Krueger decided to give us a peak into his political side with a diatribe on gun control. Still, it was a good story and a good ending. This will be my last one of Krueger's novels.

Aside from my critique of the book, David Chandler is as always great.

Wonderful series—Native American focus

A mix of Native American culture, gorgeous descriptions of nature, and solid mysteries, this series is a winner. It has enough warm character development to be like a cozy, but the suspense and action is more rough hewn than that.

Skip this one.

I am a fan of William Kent Krueger’s “Cork O’Connor” series But this one last me disappointed. And most of the book is a flashback that took 3x as long to tell as it needed. I can’t recommend. I regret spending a credit on this one.

As always, David Chandler’s narration is superb.
