Publisher's Summary

Drawing strong comparisons to the work of James Lee Burke and Tony Hillerman, William Kent Krueger’s Cork O’Connor mysteries never fail to please fans.
The Quetico-Superior Wilderness: more than two million acres of forest, white-water rapids, and uncharted islands on the Canadian/American border. Somewhere in the heart of this unforgiving territory, a young woman named Shiloh - a country-western singer at the height of her fame - has disappeared.
Her father arrives in Aurora, Minnesota, to hire former sheriff Cork O'Connor to find his daughter, and Cork joins a search party that includes an ex-con, two FBI agents, and a 10-year-old boy. Others are on Shiloh's trail as well - men hired not just to find her, but to kill her.
As the expedition ventures deeper into the wilderness, strangers descend on Aurora, threatening to spill blood on the town's snowy streets. Meanwhile, out on the Boundary Waters, winter falls hard. Cork's team of searchers loses contact with civilization, and like the brutal winds of a Minnesota blizzard, death - violent and sudden - stalks them.

Critic Reviews

“Krueger’s writing, strong and bold yet with the mature mark of restraint, pulls this exciting search-and-rescue mission through with a hard yank.” ( Publishers Weekly)

Amazing Installment To The Series

I'm a total fan now of William Kent Krueger and none of the books I've read to date have disappointed me in any way. Boundary Waters was no exception. It's been weeks since I listened to the story, but the imagery still sticks with me. A young woman, a singer, decides to get her head together by spending time alone at a cabin in the middle of nowhere and basically hides out from her fans and everyone else she knows. She's brought food and batteries for her dictation machine every week by a local Ashanabi - and one day he doesn't show up. Nor does he show up the next day, or the next. She knows that he's not coming, and she has to find her way out of the Boundry Waters on her own somehow. Her Step-Father comes to town and asks for help for Corcoron O'Connor. The FBI gets involved and a team of people go into the boundry waters to search for the missing singer. Only, they are not the only ones looking for her, and some of those searching for her would prefer that she didn't come out alive.

Somewhat of a disappointment

I listened to Iron Lake and really enjoyed it. I enjoyed this one too, but the "bad guy" was so obvious I found it annoying. The issue wasn't with the plot so much--there was no reason that the characters should have known who was behind the "troubles"; so less of a hole in the plot than just not as much fun to try to figure out who-done-it. Also, a small thing, but I found the vocal inflection the narrator used to introduce chapters annoying. It seemed not to suit a suspense novel.
