When the daughter of a powerful businessman dies as a result of her meth addiction, her father, strong-willed and brutal Buck Reinhardt, vows revenge. His target is the Red Boyz, a gang of Ojibwe youths accused of supplying the girl's fatal drug dose.

When the head of the Red Boyz and his wife are murdered in a way that suggests execution, the Ojibwe gang mobilizes, and the citizens of Tamarack County brace themselves for war, white against red.

Both sides look to Cork O'Connor, a man of mixed heritage, to uncover the truth behind the murders. A former sheriff, Cork has lived, fought, and nearly died to keep the small-town streets and his family safe from harm. He knows that violence is never a virtue, but he believes that it's sometimes a necessary response to the evil that men do.

Racing to find answers before the bloodshed spreads, Cork himself becomes involved in the darkest of deeds. As the unspeakable unfolds in the remote and beautiful place he calls home, Cork is forced to confront the horrific truth: Violence is a beast that cannot be contained.

In Red Knife, Krueger gives his listeners a vivid picture of racial conflict in small-town America, as well as a sensitive look at the secrets we keep from even those closest to us - and the destructive nature of all that is left unsaid between fathers and sons, husbands and wives, friends and lovers.

    " I've never read anyone as consistently amazing throughout a long series. Long live Cork O'Connor (and Henry Meloux!!) "

    " So far, I have yet to read anything by this author that I didn't like. This was yet another installation in the Cork O'Connor series that didn't disappoint me. This series reminds me a lot of Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn/Chee mysteries of the American Southwest, only set in the North Woods of Minnesota. "

    " Def. still a fan of the series and another 3.5 for me on this one. I enjoyed more of the back story with the Ojibwe (always love reading those parts!), but I grew a little tiresome and sort of reached that "jumped the shark" point? Maybe??? With the obvious event at the end (saw that one coming), I couldn't help thinking it was very cliche' and I just kind of sighed.. I already read #10, so I know things are about to get VERY good (or bad)... so I'm excited to move on to the next book. "

    " I actually rated this book 4.5 stars. This book won't be published until August 2008; however, I was given an ARC of the book by William Kent Krueger. Like all of Kent's books, this one is fabulous as well. I always enjoy the time I spend with Cork O'Connor, his family, the Ojibwe, and the people of Aurora. This book is darker than the others in the series, dealing with some pretty heavy topics. You should read this series in order! "
