A well paced and enjoyable read. Continues the story of a former sherif, his family, his tribe, and an assortment of “bad guys”. The plot is not overly complex but draws the reader in. I especially like the elements of nature and native culture that are woven into the tale. I plan on reading more in this series. ( )

I am hooked on this series and the character Cork O’Connor. Everything and everyone is so real. Krueger weaves murder into the Minnesota wilderness while teaching the reader about the Native American Anishinaabe. Their storytelling tradition is given the importance it deserves and adds much to the narrative. The descriptions are amazingly perfect and while the dialogue is sometimes brash it is dead on:

“He told Meloux things became clearer to him when he ran. But the way the situation stood now, he could run all the way to the f...*g moon and everything would still be a mess.” I got it.

I have #3, Purgatory Ridge, coming next and I can’t wait until the library calls that it is ready. To be picked up. ( )

Shiloh is a country music singer who is purposely missing in the Boundary Waters of the Quetico-Superior Wilderness on the Minnesota/Canadian border. Cork O'Connor is the former sheriff of Aurora, Minnesota who has been convinced to help search for her. He doesn't know Shiloh but he had a schoolboy crush on her mother many years ago. In addition to Cork the search party includes two FBI agents, ex-con Stormy Two Knives and his son Lewis, and Shiloh's father, 1CArkansas Willie 1D Raye.

Two evil men are also searching for Shiloh with plans to kill her. After witnessing her mother 19s murder many years ago, Shiloh got amnesia but may now be regaining her memory of that event.

This is an outstanding wilderness mystery with an action packed plot. The author does a wonderful job evoking the bitter cold and majestic beauty of the wilderness. He maintains suspense and weaves together native American culture in a totally mesmerizing way. Characters are rich and multifaceted. I definitely plan to read the rest of the series and have already picked up book 3, Purgatory Ridge. I am absolutely confident I 19ll read the rest of this enjoyable series during 2014.

Krueger’s second novel (Iron Lake, 1998) again features ex-sheriff Cork O’Connor of hardscrabble Aurora, Minnesota, and plenty of harsh weather. Here, a top-of-the-charts but depressed, ex-druggy country-western girl singer, Shiloh, disappears into the two-million acres of the Quetico-Superior Wilderness on the Canadian border. Cork, an old buddy of Shiloh’s mother, whose murder remains unsolved, heads a search party that includes include two FBI agents, an ex-con, a ten-year old kid, and Shiloh’s father. Permeating the tale is the spirit of the Anishinaabe Indians, while the heavy pelts on the muskrats point to a huge, bitter winter ahead. Meantime, some bad guys have tortured to death Wendell Two Knives, the Anishinaabe guide, trying to get him to tell where Shiloh has gone, since they want her just as badly as Cork’s search party. Shiloh witnessed her mother’s murder, then had amnesia, and through regression therapy seems to have brought up the killer. Was he her mother’s lover, a Vegas casino owner named Benedetti, who now wants Shiloh dead? Does all this have to do with the Ojibwa’s cash-rich Grand Casino on Iron Lake? Why was Shiloh’s therapist murdered as well? Will Shiloh survive to rebuild Ozark Records into an outlet for indigenous music? Cork remains a spritely, intriguing hero in a world of wolves, portages, heavy weather, and worrisome humans, with a third entry on its way.
