Both sides look to Cork O'Connor, a man of mixed heritage, to uncover the truth behind the murders. A former sheriff, Cork has lived, fought, and nearly died to keep the small-town streets and his family safe from harm. He knows that violence is never a virtue, but he believes that it's sometimes a necessary response to the evil that men do.
Racing to find answers before the bloodshed spreads, Cork himself becomes involved in the darkest of deeds. As the unspeakable unfolds in the remote and beautiful place he calls home, Cork is forced to confront the horrific truth: Violence is a beast that cannot be contained.
In Red Knife, Krueger gives his listeners a vivid picture of racial conflict in small-town America, as well as a sensitive look at the secrets we keep from even those closest to us - and the destructive nature of all that is left unsaid between fathers and sons, husbands and wives, friends and lovers.

BAD CHOICE AS NARRATOR
Consistency, Continuity, Talent with Voices.
When signing a narrator for a series, the author or his agent should actually listen to the candidates. Folks that read series become accustomed to the narrator's interpretation of the work and changing mid-stream in this occasionally engaging story line simply ruined it for me. Mr. Schiner is particularly bad at simulating female voices and this alone left me nonplussed and a bit angry, two emotions that most authors would rather avoid.
Shame on you, Krueger! This series is a bit thin and ponderous to begin with and this faux pas may spell an early end to my Cork O'Connor patronage.

Not the same
Would you try another book from William Kent Krueger and/or Buck Schirner?
Too slow, too boring, too many words. And the narration I just can't enjoy. Didn't finish the book.
What could William Kent Krueger have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Too many words and descriptions about what the characters were thinking.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Buck Schirner?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
