"One of today's automatic buy-today-read-tonight series...thoughtful but suspenseful, fast but lasting, contemporary but strangely timeless." (Lee Child) In the extraordinary new Cork O'Connor thriller from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author William Kent Krueger, the lives of hundreds of innocent people are at stake when Cork vanishes just days before his daughter's wedding. Since the violent deaths of his wife, father, and best friend all occurred in previous Novembers, Cork O'Connor has always considered it to be the cruelest of months. Yet, his daughter has chosen this dismal time of year in which to marry, and Cork is understandably uneasy. His concern comes to a head when a man camping in Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness goes missing. As the official search ends with no recovery in sight, Cork is asked by the man's family to stay on the case. Although the wedding is fast approaching and the weather looks threatening, he accepts and returns to that vast wilderness on his own. As the sky darkens and the days pass, Cork's family anxiously awaits his return. Finally certain that something has gone terribly wrong, they fly by floatplane to the lake where the missing man was last seen. Locating Cork's campsite, they find no sign of their father. They do find blood, however. A lot of it. With an early winter storm on the horizon, it's a race against time as Cork's family struggles to uncover the mystery behind these disappearances. Little do they know, not only is Cork's life on the line, but so are the lives of hundreds of others. A taut, suspenseful thriller, Manitou Canyon features everything readers love in a Cork O'Connor novel: a dramatic Northwoods setting, an intriguing view of the Objibwe culture, an enigmatic crime, masterful storytelling, and more than a few surprises.

When an old friend of Cork's disappears, his granddaughter hires Cork to help find him. It becomes evident that good intentions can lead to tragic consequences. ( )

Reading this book I became increasingly aware of the spiritual nature of the characters an Krueger’s exploration of their spirituality. Perhaps it is how he makes them human. He also continues the pattern of introducing new characters - along with their back story. And the evident intention of continuing their threads. ( )

Could wait long enough to let the library get a copy of this on audio and then wait my turn so I just read it in hard copy. I really love to listen to this series because I think it adds to the intimacy of the story.

So I liked this story. I especially liked the part with Corc in the woods. I wish actually there had been more of that and less of everyone back in Aurora. It felt a little muddled with characters. Plus I thought the whole prologue was a bit over dramatic for what it ended up being. There wasn't really any need to kill him immediately as they planned. In fact they needed him alive more than dead if they were going to use him as an example later. There wasn't really any need for him at all. The protestors could have picked the girl up anywhere and the grandfather could be told whatever. We need a better reason for Corc to be in the woods at all.

And I have to say I'm not real fond of Rainy, sorry. ( )

Cork O'Connor is hired by the grandchildren of a wealthy structural architect to find out whether he survived a disappearance in the North Country (i.e., the Boundary Waters of Minnesota.) Cork and the granddaughter are captured by a group whose agenda is unclear at the outset. Meanwhile, son Stephen returns from the desert, worried about his father's disappearance, and old flame of Henry Meloux shows up angry, disrupting Rainy and life at Crow Point. Action moves back and forth between Cork and his captors, and the search and investigation as to what is really happening. The first 75% of the book was 5 star, but the plots were a little too conveniently tied up. ( )
