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.

What the Critics Say

“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)

Another unusual adventure

As usual, I recommend that you read the publisher's summary. Often there is more information than I would give: I really try not to write spoilers.

This is a mystery with murders and murderers literally coming out of the woods. I find it interesting that Cork O'Connor, no longer in law enforcement, is the "go to" guy for every agency and mercenary in his area. This story has twists and turns that kept me guessing until near the end. Also, new inforrmation is added about Cork's personal life, the Indian reservation, and the casino. This book seems to pick up where the last one left off, but it can easily stand alone.

David Chandler's narration includes voices for the different characters and he remains consistent with his portrayals. This is a good performance.

- adrienne "Tell us about yourself!"

Still disappointing..

Would you try another book from William Kent Krueger and/or David Chandler?

no, two is enough.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The story line itself could have been very interesting but so much of it was predictable.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Chandler?

George Guidall would have been wonderful!!


Did Boundary Waters inspire you to do anything?

not try anymore of the books in this series...


Any additional comments?

I travel a great deal and I listen to audiobooks so I'm always looking for good series books. I had high hopes for this series but I won't be listening to anymore of them. They were compared to the Longmire books which I love and have listened to twice. Maybe that comparison clouded my review, this book in no way compares to the Longmire series.....
