Every married couple knows you don't go to bed angry. The corollary, Cork O'Connor realizes, is that you also don't say goodbye when you're mad. When the charter plane Jo O'Connor is on crashes over the mountains in Wyoming in an early winter storm, Cork deeply regrets the heated argument he had with his wife just before she left. An intense search is launched, but bad weather and the steep terrain hinder the efforts and soon the search is abandoned.

Several months later, still grieving, Cork is contacted by the wife of the man who owned and flew the charter plane. An unlawful death suit has been filed against the pilot's estate alleging that he had been drinking the night before the flight disappeared and his ability to fly the plane was impaired. But credible evidence suggests he was not flying the plane that crashed. And if he didn't fly the plane into the storm, then who did?

Soon, Cork is pulled deep into a dangerous web of corruption that takes him to the rugged, isolated outback of Wyoming and forces him into deadly confrontations with law officers on the take and murderous drug lords who create safe havens on Indian lands along the porous borders of the United States. But in the midst of the danger and deception lies the possibility that Jo's disappearance was not the end of her, that somewhere along the labyrinthine path of his search, maybe even in the broad shadow of Heaven's Keep itself, Cork will find her alive and waiting for him.

    " Krueger's O'Connor series takes a trip to the west. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vickie T | 2/8/2014

    " Cork O'Connor's wife disappears after a plane crash in Wyoming. Several months after the search is given up Cork realizes that the crash was not all that it seemed to be and he heads back to Wyoming to find out exactly what happened to Jo. Good mystery. "

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

    " Though Kruegar's books are detective thrillers, I'm always comforted by the main character,Cork O'Connor and his family, and the Native American connection. I really can't even tell you why, other than I enjoy the wisdom of Henry Melioux, and the rugged beauty of Northern Minnesota depicted the descriptions. The stories keep me turning pages, but it always feels like I'm visiting with an old friend when I pick up one of this particular series to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 1/29/2014

    " Another Cork book that I read in merely a day. This one ROCKED, though I think some fans were probably disappointed. Now, in case it's not hidden.. there ARE spoilers ahead, so stop reading!! Okay, this book had me turning and turning the pages. Now, I accidentally read book 10 first, which spoke of his wife being dead, so I was expecting it, but then I sort of hoped that maybe it turned out she was "missing". Hmmm... I guess in a way, I like to see Cork on his own. I expect he'll be a whole lot more reckless with kids grown & no wife, etc. Thought this was an excellent, probably my 2nd favorite of the series.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/28/2014

    " This was one of the most engaging books in the series so far. I think it's because there's a lot of intrigue and unanswered questions throughout it all that really pulled me in. I am curious about what will happen in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken | 1/27/2014

    " Playing catch up on Krueger's excellent mysteries which continue with Heaven's Keep. Cork O'Connor battles local law enforcement, Northern Arapahoe and assassins as he investigates his wife's, Jo's, disappearance in a snowstorm over the Wyoming Rockies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/25/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Perri | 1/19/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terri | 1/7/2014

    " I generally read Krueger's books. I think the narration hindered my enjoyment of the story. Interesting storyline, ponderous delivery. "

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

    " I like Krueger's mysteries a lot. He is a new favorite author. This novel is suspenseful and kept my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 12/18/2013

    " This story was still a good read, but it feels like Krueger is running out of ideas for Cork O'Connor. The story felt forced and didn't have the same emotion that others have had. I don't know that the plot for this book opens up any more opportunities either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelly | 12/12/2013

    " I didn't finish this one. Depressing and too many swear words. I read the last page though, which I NEVER do! It had a sad ending so I'm glad I skipped it this time. "
