    " Probably the best book in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/27/2014

    " Dark. I suppose he is keeping it real. Great writing but dark dark dark which was sad. "

    " I give this Cork O'Connor book my "best story in a series" award. It was worth the wait....and left me wanting to turn another page. The book stands alone (so if it is your first William Kent Krueger read, you won't be left wondering about references to earlier books.) But Krueger only provides O'Connor family background when background is essential (so if you have, like me, read all of the others in the series, you won't get bored by the repetition.) The Ojibwa mystic tradition is interestingly presented and makes me want to learn more; the beauty and wildness of northern Minnesota is drawn with a brilliant word palette reminding me of personal soul-searching times spent paddling the Boundary Waters and walking the shores of Lake Gichigami. "The opposite of love is not hate but fear." "

    " William Kent Krueger is an incredibly talented author who has created an excellent series of characters. After reading the first few books in this series, many of these characters become "friends." I am grateful for the opportunity to visit them again. Honestly, I don't even try to remember the plot after the fact, I'm just happy to go along for the ride. While some of the books in this series are better than others, none of them are bad. And all I have left to say is that if you read any of these novels and you aren't touched at least a little bit, you have no heart. "

    " Predictable. Redundant . Nice scenery . Likable characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/9/2014

    " Krueger is an excellent writer. The Cork O'Connor series is very well done -- start at the beginning -- each store builds on the character development that occured in the ones before. Beautifully written, engaging stories, multi-faceted characters. Highly recommend this mystery series set near the Boundary Waters in Minnesota. "

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

    " I thought Trickster's Point was excellent. One of my favorites by Kent Krueger. Right up there with Thunder Bay and Vermilion Drift. I enjoyed his reading from this book at Common Good Books in St. Paul, MN. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/17/2013

    " I liked this book, mainly because I've read all of this series and the characters appeal to me. I think Krueger has begun to bring a lot more Ojibwe lore into his novels. I didn't think this book was as interesting as some past novels. Still, enjoyed it and will read more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 11/23/2013

    " Another great Cork O'Connor mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 11/23/2013

    " Ditto to other reader comments, but bottom line - he keeps me interested, sometimes to the point I can't put the book down, and I love his characters! I can't wait for the next arrival! (Aug 2013) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 11/15/2013

    " I really enjoy the Cork O'Connor series. Easy and fun reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/11/2013

    " I am hooked on this series. The books are interesting and intelligent and well written. I did figure who done it in this one but was still riveted until the last page. His characters are like able and multi dimentional, His plot lines are complex. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse | 10/19/2013

    " Another good Cork O'Connor book. Fits the series nicely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 10/13/2013

    " Yay! I was able to guess the killer long before the end of the book. It didn't diminish my enjoyment any. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 9/26/2013

    " Another great read featuring Cork O'Connor at his best, peering into the motives that drive all of us to do the terrible or the good as we seek our own god. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Al | 7/4/2013

    " Not one of his best. Rather slow moving. Includes material not needed - a smokescreen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 3/23/2013

    " Krueger deftly carries the reader between the main character's past and present in this tightly written mystery. Fans of the this series will appreciate the exploration of Cork's Native American roots as he finds himself the chief suspect in a murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandie | 1/25/2013

    " Not his best but good enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenneth | 1/6/2013

    " It was a good mystery. It reminds me of Northern Minnesota very much. I don't miss the rifles firing at me even when I was dressed in red. I have a bullet the landed at my feet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryann | 10/20/2012

    " Good twists in this latest visit to Northern MN with Cork O'Connor. I did suspect the guilty party before the book was done, but it took a while and wasn't sure until he read the the DNR tracker's report. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 9/29/2012

    " Another great story! The continuation of the familiar characters, both Corks friends and family just gets better and better. The mystery to solve is just a bonus! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 9/28/2012

    " Yet another good one from William Kent Krueger. I read it in one day. Always pleasant to revisit Cork O'Connor and his family for another mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Temple | 8/23/2012

    " Not a lot of action for Cork O'Connor this time as he is absorbed by the past. I gave it 3 stars. "
