During a houseboat vacation on the remote Lake of the Woods, a violent gale sweeps through unexpectedly, stranding Cork and his daughter, Jenny, on a devastated island where the wind has ushered in a force far darker and more deadly than any storm.

Amid the wreckage, Cork and Jenny discover an old trapper's cabin where they find the body of a teenage girl. She wasn't killed by the storm, however; she'd been bound and tortured before she died. Whimpering sounds coming from outside the cabin lead them to a tangle of branches toppled by the vicious winds. Underneath the debris, they find a baby boy, hungry and dehydrated, but still very much alive.

Powerful forces intent on securing the child pursue them to the isolated Northwest Angle, where it's impossible to tell who among the residents is in league with the devil. Cork understands that to save his family he must solve the puzzle of this mysterious child whom death follows like a shadow.

Part adventure, part mystery, and all knockout thriller (Booklist), Northwest Angle is a dynamic addition to William Kent Krueger's critically acclaimed, award-winning series.

    " I haven't read a Cork McConnell mystery for a while so it was good to catch up. Now must go back and read the ones I missed to fill in the blanks. Good characters, good tension. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 1/26/2014

    " William Kent Kruger knocks it out of the park again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonja | 1/25/2014

    " A book has to be outstanding in order to receive more than 3 stars from me. (Really... can every book be a 4 or 5? :) ha!) While this was a good book and I am glad that I read it, it was just a 3-star book.... average. The character development... average. The plot... good but still average. Will I recommend it? Only to those who have read the others in the series... if you've taken the time to read these so far... don't stop now. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly Weston | 1/22/2014

    " Hard to believe that Kruger can continue such beautifully written, riveting thrillers! In this outing, a family reunion, a houseboat vacation goes horribly wrong. A phenomenal storm system separates Cork O'Connor and his older daughter from the rest of the family and then them from each other. When Jenny finally makes it to shore she finds a tiny baby hidden near his dead mother. Once reunited, Cork and Jenny realize they, too, are in danger from whoever murdered the young mother. Living through the storm and its aftermath is just the beginning of what the entire O'Connor family faces as this terrific story unfolds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virgil Larson | 1/22/2014

    " Another north woods adventure with Cork O'Connor. This story has a collection of really bad guys and some really nice people. It seems like there is more mention of prayer and spirituality, both Christian and American Indian, than in other books of this series. It's the kind of book that makes you skip what you really ought to be doing in order to finish it. "

    " Another Krueger book that keeps me a fan. Lots of action, interesting events to keep one on their toes. Only disappointment was something important took place with not much explanation. Have to read the previoius book to see what happened. Other than that, I would happily recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gaye | 12/3/2011

    " The setting and the references to Ojibwa culture were of the most interest to me. The religious folks seemed stereotyped. The story itself vacillated between interesting and boring to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayma | 11/3/2011

    " Liked this one well enough to look up some of Krueger's previous novels. Found it just a touch sweet on the mother-love side--I like a little more grit--but really enjoyed the setting. "
