In the new Cork O'Connor thriller, the lives of hundreds of innocent people are at stake when Cork vanishes just days before his daughter's wedding.

I've been reading Cork 'Connor since the beginning, and am a big fan of the series. Because the intertwined life of the many characters is so detailed, I look forward to a new book to find out what has been going on in their life. This book caught me up to date but I saw only a brief notice of the middle child, Annie, and I can't quite remember what she's been up to. I might have to go back a book or two to find out

The plot of this book is just a little different. It's not just about standing up to evil in a heroic fashion. It blurs the lines between good people doing bad deeds, and evil being defeated by good.

I like Krueger's Cork O'Connor books. MANITOU CANYON is another great read which is a well plotted and suspenseful. He does a great job of juxtaposing multiple, complex underlying themes: rural living (especially in northern climates), Native American and white man interactions, environmental and ecological issues, and the increasingly present and important matter of values related to money and the degree to which we as a society are willing to let the short term pursuit of money trump the long term strategies and decisions that need to be made to secure a safer, livable world.

I have enjoyed this series but it is becoming more and more political and very one sided. If the next book is more of the same, I will ve safly fone with this series and the author.

A side comment -- this large print version is a joy to read. It makes reading more relaxing, more pleasant. It was well worth the wait.

All in all a good book in the series. It's such a long series that we feel pretty invested in the characters so even though the plot in this book is a bit strange it's all good. I got a little confused over the characters towards the end but basically just blew past it. For our beloved characters, one gets married, a old girlfriend comes back to another, a door opens for our hero and a near miracle happens for a late-bloomer.

Not a bad read as a mystery novel. The romanticized white man views of what his Native American main characters live and how they view the world is somewhat adolescent. But a lot of readers will savor that in all likelihood, the way so many female readers savor romance novels.
