William Kent Krueger has won two Anthony Awards for his gripping Cork O’Connor mysteries. Set in remote areas of the northwest, each book in the series launches the Minnesota lawman into challenges that push his endurance to new limits. Part Irish, part Native-American, Sheriff Cork O’Connor serves the remote territory of Tamarack County, Minnesota. But big trouble is brewing: a powerful man believes O’Connor killed his son. Now there’s a price on the sheriff’s head and a bullet in his leg. He finds refuge with his cousin, Jewell, and her teenage son, Ren, in their tiny Michigan town. But when Ren and his friends are threatened, O’Connor must risk his cover to find out why. Copper River opens with a terrifying scene that sets the tone for the suspense that grows stronger with each succeeding chapter. The narrator’s taut performance underscores O’Connor’s vulnerability and his vigilance.

    " I liked how there was a carryover from the last book into this one. A change of scenery was good as well, but I'm getting a bit tired of Cork continually being shot or injured. How much can a man take?! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenh | 2/6/2014

    " Ahhh...the second half of the story. This was a good one. I like his writing style, and again I enjoy the books b/c they are set locally. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 2/5/2014

    " A new setting in this book...Michigan... where Cork seeks help from his cousin the veterinarian, to patch a bullet wound. Love the teenage characters in this one. The cougar sightings no one quite believes are also familiar... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 1/7/2014

    " Good book--very suspenseful "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoDee | 1/4/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 3/22/2013
