William Kent Krueger and Cork O’Connor are new to me, but have clearly been around for a while. I have just started in on Iron Lake, and so far it is developing very nicely, with deep characterization, just the right amount of description, and the beginning of an intriguing plot. I can’t tell you much more than that right now, but I am eager to get farther into the story to see if my initial guesses about what has happened to the missing boy Paul LeBeau are correct.

He was an Eagle Scout. Order of the Arrow. Member of Troop 135 out of St. Agnes Catholic Church. He had made himself capable in a hundred ways.

Cork O’Connor, the former sheriff of Aurora, Minnesota, is having difficulty dealing with the marital meltdown that has separated him from his children. Part Irish, part Anishinaabe Indian, he is getting by on heavy doses of caffeine, nicotine, and guilt.

Once a cop on Chicago’s South Side, there’s not much that can shock him. But when the town’s judge is brutally murdered, and a young Eagle Scout is reported missing, Cork takes on this complicated and perplexing case of conspiracy, corruption, and a small-town secret that hits painfully close to home.
