Multiple Anthony Award winner William Kent Krueger returns to Minnesota's North Woods country for another chilling entry in his Cork O'Connor series. In this thrilling mystery, former sheriff Cork O'Connor confronts the paranormal while investigating baffling murders. After 17-year-old Charlotte Kane-the beautiful, brilliant, and brooding daughter of a rich widower-disappears on a drunken New Years' Eve snowmobile ride, a raging blizzard soon snuffs out all search efforts. When her body is found during the spring thaw four months later, preliminary evidence implicates her ex-boyfriend-Ojibwe bad-boy, Solemn Winter Moon. But then a second Charlotte Kane turns up dead, and Cork isn't sure of anything any more. David Chandler's riveting narration of this hair-raising novel highlights the mystical elements in an electrifying tale of intrigue and foreboding. Listeners certainly won't want to miss Krueger's acclaimed Copper River (RB# 98559). "Krueger skillfully crafts enough plot twists to keep everybody guessing through the bloody climax to the thrilling end."-Publishers Weekly "[Blood Hollow] takes Krueger's work to an entirely new level. The prose . is so good and the plotting so deft that readers will be hard put to stop reading once they begin."-Chicago Sun-Times Download and start listening now!

    " Charlotte Kane has been murdered and Cork O'Connor is investigating the crime. Everything points to Solemn Winter Moon, the victims boyfriend. An interesting look at Catholicism and the Spirit world of the Ojibwe. Sin eating a concept I had never heard of is also used. "Eating away sins". Having faith, trying to find faith and living without any is also a central theme. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 2/12/2014

    " These take place in familiar areas in MN & WI. I heard William Kent Krueger speak at an author's series and he was terrific! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 1/21/2014

    " Another good Cork O'Connor story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arizonagirl | 1/17/2014

    " Book Four of the Cork O'Connor Mysteries "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 1/17/2014

    " I remain hooked on the Cork O'Connor series even though the author can't resist sprinkling the stories with a lot of magical nonsense and spirituality that I find rather annoying. This one had ghosts, the usual cast of Indian spirits, a visitation by Jesus and even a miraculous faith healing. It was a bit much. Despite these shortcomings, it was a good story that kept you scratching your head. I'm concerned that I won't find O'Connor quite as interesting a character since he ends the book reverting to his childhood faith and no longer the "rogue" ex-sheriff. Hopefully Kreuger will find some way to return him to his renegade status in subsequent episodes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 1/11/2014

    " Shows how police work isn't like it is on the television shows. A lot of hits and misses while following the clues and due diligence. Cork O'Connor is helping his wife defend a young Ojibwe accused of murder. Defnitely not everything is at it first appears and the past gets dredged up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerri Tebben | 1/3/2014

    " Keeps u wanting to turn the page to see who did it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 1/3/2014

    " I'm enjoying this series (Cork O'Connor, sometime sheriff of Boundary Waters town in Minnesota), and for me this book - the fourth in the series - is the best thus far. Wow, twists and turns! A compulsive read that I scarfed down in a day or so while on vacation. The main character is good company and is gaining more depth as a character as the series progresses. I like the fact that he's part of a family - so many mystery series require the main character to be a serial loner or s/o who just can't get a steady relationship going - and to this family gal the family connections and emotions feel very real. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marla Sommer | 1/2/2014

    " Very good mystery with the main character claiming to have seen Jesus and people believing he could preform miracles after this incounter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin Allen | 12/20/2013

    " Well-written, well-paced, and a good story. And, like others have said, lots of twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joann | 12/14/2013

    " Definitely one of his best books - a spell-binding mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirley Midgett | 12/9/2013

    " If you like Joe Pickett or Walt Longmire or Mike Bowditch, you are going to like Cork O'Connor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Makenzie | 12/7/2013

    " This is the least favorite of this series that I have read so far. The storyline was too far fetched with lots of twists that were hard to follow. Hopefully the next one will be more realistic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Perri | 11/28/2013

    " Really enjoyed this murder mystery! I enjoy the characters in this series of books. I can't seem to read them in order, but it doesn't really matter. A good quick read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 10/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 10/12/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Brant | 6/2/2012

    " Really like Krueger's mysteries...the blend of native American spirituality, Catholicism, and plain old skepticism. Having the stories set in my native state of Minnesota doesn't hurt either. This one was good until the end...no drop in story line or character development. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Britt | 3/13/2012

    " This series gets better and better ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 3/11/2012

    " Have enjoyed every Wm Kent Krueger book. MN author. If you have an affinity for northern MN, you will love his characters, the controversial issues he tackles and the settings. He's great fun to meet in person as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 2/18/2012

    " Weakest of the series so far. I have a feeling it's probably because there was no family conflict for Cork. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 1/30/2012

    " 3.5 stars. A lively mystery set in Minnesota, with intriguing characters. No graphic gore (a plus for me.)...a bit of Ojibwe culture....surprising twists and turns at the end. I enjoyed the setting and such details as Leinenkugel beer. I will definitely reed another Corky O'Conoran mystery. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tina | 2/16/2011

    " Clumsy and predictable. I found the characters two dimensional and generally unrelatable. One of the worst books I've read in a long time. If this wasn't a book club selection, I never would have finished. "
