Description

New York Times bestselling author William Kent Krueger delivers yet another "punch-to-the-gut blend of detective story and investigative fiction" (Booklist, starred review) as Cork O'Connor and his son Stephen work together to uncover the truth behind the tragic plane crash of a senator on Desolation Mountain and the mysterious disappearances of several first responders. This is a heart-pounding and devastating mystery the scope and consequences of which go far beyond what father or son could ever have imagined.

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." To Stephen O'Connor, Hamlet's dour observation is more than just words. All his life, he has had visions of tragedies to come. When he experiences the vision of a great bird shot from the sky, he knows something terrible is about to happen. The crash of a private plane on Desolation Mountain in a remote part of the Iron Lake Reservation, which kills a United States senator and most of her family, confirms Stephen's worst fears. Stephen joins his father, Cork O'Connor and a few Ojibwe men from the nearby Iron Lake reservation to sift through the smoldering wreckage when the FBI arrives and quickly assumes control of the situation. What seems like the end of the O'Connors' involvement is, however, only the beginning of a harrowing journey to understand the truth behind the Senator's death. As he initiates his own probe, Cork O'Connor stumbles upon a familiar face in Bo Thorson, a private security consultant whose unnamed clients have hired him to look quietly into the cause of the crash. The men agree to join forces in their investigation, but soon Cork begins to wonder if Thorson's loyalties lie elsewhere. In that far north Minnesota County, which is overrun with agents of the FBI, NTSB, DoD, and even members of a rightwing militia, all of whom have their own agendas, Cork, Stephen, and Bo attempt to navigate a perilous course. Roadblocked by lies from the highest levels of government, uncertain who to trust, and facing growing threats the deeper they dig for answers, the three men finally understand that to get to the truth, they will have to face the great menace, a beast of true evil lurking in the woods—a beast with a murderous intent of unimaginable scale.

        A fatal plane crash drives Edgar-winner Krueger’s haunting, supernaturally tinged 17th mystery to feature Aurora, Minn., former sheriff Cork O’Connor (after 2017’s Sulfur Springs). Cork has been worried about his grown son, Stephen, who’s been having a disturbing vision. When a plane carrying controversial Senator Olympia McCarthy and her family goes down in the Iron Lake Reservation, near Desolation Mountain, it eerily echoes Stephen’s vision. As a member of the Tamarack County Search and Rescue Team, Cork offers his help, but soon the reservation is swarming with government officials. Not one to stand on the sidelines, Cork soon discovers that an old acquaintance, former Secret Service agent Bo Thorson, is involved. When people that were first on the scene go missing, Cork and Bo must trust each other to find them before it’s too late and hopefully discover what caused the crash. Krueger skillfully combines the otherworldly setting of the Minnesota wilds with Native American lore to create a winning mystery with more than a few surprises. 16-city author tour.

      • content: Gripping from beginning to end, this audiobook is a whodunit with a great story and equally excellent dialogue. Both shine as David Chandler narrates. At its heart, the novel focuses on Cork O'Connor's investigation of the death of a U.S. senator in a plane crash on Desolation Mountain. But because the FBI asserts its jurisdiction, the plane's black box is missing, and some first responders have disappeared--O'Connor discovers a more complicated story. Chandler's intense yet purposefully paced presentation complements author William Kent Krueger's fascinating characters and keeps listeners focused. Although this is the 17th book in the O'Connor series, it stands well alone, allowing even new listeners to enjoy the audiobook. D.J.S.
