Publisher's Summary

After 17-year-old Charlotte Kane, the beautiful, brilliant, and brooding daughter of a rich widower, disappears on a drunken New Years' Eve snowmobile ride, a raging blizzard soon snuffs out all search efforts. When her body is found during the spring thaw four months later, preliminary evidence implicates her ex-boyfriend: Ojibwe bad-boy Solemn Winter Moon. But then a second Charlotte Kane turns up dead, and Cork isn't sure of anything any more.

Minnesota Mysteries Evolve

So I finished book three--Purgatory Ridge and this book number four--Blood Hollow as back to back post holiday listening. I thought the third book in the series was really well written and very engaging. However, to me, it was also very sad. Krueger really captured the fragility of life and families and the loneliness that can exist in the midst of community.

This fourth book returns strongly to life in Aurora and focuses much more on Cork and his family and their day to day existence. Be aware that there is still a sense of angst and a strong feeling of how little neighbors often really know one another. Krueger really captures community conflict, Native American beliefs, religious thought and the natural beauty of wild Minnesota.

To me this is a multidimensional and complex series which weaves together many disparate people, concepts and ideas. At times it can feel a bit over done--a bit far fetched--but in the end I think there is a strong storyline with a high degree of consistency from book to book. Recommended if you like mysteries with depth and a solid sense of regional setting and atmosphere.

Do be aware that while the author takes on difficult topics, Krueger's writing engages, and he paints beautiful word pictures and images with his storytelling. Unusual for a thriller/mystery.

Good story but...

I liked the story line. There were plenty of twists and turn in the plot. But the overly forced religious opinion was too much for me and totally ruined the experience of listening to the story. I felt like I was being preached at and manipulated to accept the author's religious views. If all his other books have the same overbearing religious bent, I won't be buying them.
