Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lora | 2/15/2014

    " I bought this book for my husband and decided to check it out for myself. I enjoyed that it takes place in Minnesota and seemed respectful of Ojibwe culture. It was suspenseful and hooked me. I'll have to read the others! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 1/27/2014

    " I wanted to like this book but I just couldn't get attached to the characters and there was way too much description of everything. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swanbender2001 | 1/21/2014

    " I spent the entire day finishing this book yesterday. I read until my eyesight was fuzzy. I enjoy Cork; the setting; the mystery and characterizations; and the culture. Even though this is the first book in the Corcoran "Cork" O'Connor series, it is the second book of the series I have had the pleasure of reading and I look forward to reading more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 1/19/2014

    " I read Vermilion Drift 1st and LOVED it and am now working my way back. This is a 3.5. A really fun read, definitely riveting and kept my attention. A good mystery. I think I have an affinity for Mr. Krueger's books though, being from Michigan. His vivid descriptions of the cold were spot-on! He's slowly becoming a favorite mystery writer and I have already purchased books 2 & 3 to see if I'm definitely hooked! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 1/10/2014

    " First in the O'Connor series about a half Native American ex-sheriff in Minnesota. The story was gripping and the descriptions were lush. I enjoyed this book on tape. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly Atkinson | 1/3/2014

    " My first Kent Kruegger mystery. I look forward to others, especially since they are set in Minnesota, where I have lived since 1968, and where I love day hiking in the northern Minnesota lake country. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 12/27/2013

    " He is quite a character, that Cork. I admit the Windigo part of the story didn't do much for me. Nice to read about northern Minnesota however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark S. | 12/25/2013

    " Excellent book. The main character Cork is sympathetic and interesting. The mixture of Native American lore and northern MN scenery is really cool. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tena | 12/23/2013

    " I'm not a mystery lover. In spite of that fact, this book kept me going. I didn't have the story figured out until quite late in the book, and the fact that we've had heavy snow for the last week here in Iowa made the setting seem real to me. I'm glad I read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 12/17/2013

    " gREAT FIRST NOVEL. lOTS OF SUSPENSE. Former Sheriff Cork O'Connor was a flawed hero and excellent character. Liked the native American charaters and story angle. This is the first of a planned series. Definatly worth more of a look. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 12/13/2013

    " This is the first book I have read by this author. I am looking forward to more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura D'ambrosio | 11/25/2013

    " All of Krueger's books are great stories. He not only writes good mysteries but also about small towns, northern Minnesota and the Objibwe with insight and compassion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melle | 11/13/2013

    " A decent suspenseful story that captures the feel of rural northern Minnesota's Anishinaabe Country. I'm reserving judgement about some of the details and depictions of Anishinaabe culture, but Krueger definitely captures the prevalent white ignorance and prejudices of rez-bordering small towns. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Cannon | 10/26/2013

    " Great debut! Can't wait to read more in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally Kenney | 3/28/2013

    " A fresh mystery voice and I loved the setting. Very suspenseful. Focus on native american but spirituality not overdone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dayna | 2/26/2013

    " Minnesota snowy forest noir. The who done it is not so surprising but the deeply drawn character of Cork O'Connor and his small town world are mesmerizing. "
