William Kent Krueger’s latest New York Times bestseller is a thrilling exploration of the motives, both good and ill, that lead men and women into the difficult, sometimes deadly, political arena.

Cork O’Connor is sitting in the shadow of a towering monolith known as Trickster’s Point, deep in the Minnesota wilderness. With him is Jubal Little, who is favored to become the first Native American elected governor of Minnesota and who is slowly dying with an arrow through his heart. Although the men have been bow-hunting, a long-standing tradition among these two friends, this is no hunting accident. The arrow turns out to be one of Cork’s, and he becomes the primary suspect in the murder. He understands full well that he’s been set up.

As he works to clear his name and track the real killer, Cork remembers his long, complex relationship with the tough kid who would grow up to become a professional football player, a populist politician, and the lover of the first woman to whom Cork ever gave his heart. Jubal was known by many for his passion, his loyalty, and his ambition. Only Cork knows that he was capable of murder.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by 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. "
