Fiction. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:The New York Times bestselling author of Ordinary Grace weaves a vivid and pulse-pounding thriller that follows Cork O'Connor's search for a missing man amid the fraught tensions at the border between Arizona and Mexico.
On the Fourth of July, just as fireworks are about to go off in Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O'Connor and his new bride Rainy Bisonette receive a desperate phone call from Rainy's son, Peter. The connection is terrible but before the line goes dead, they hear Peter confess to the murder of someone named Rodriquez.

The following morning, Cork and Rainy fly to southern Arizona, where Peter has been working as a counselor in a well-known drug rehab center. When they arrive, they learn that Peter was fired six months earlier and hasn't been heard from since. So they head to the little desert town of Sulfur Springs where Peter has been receiving his mail. But no one in Sulfur Springs seems to know him. They do, however, seem to recognize the name Rodriguez. Apparently, the Rodriguez family is one of the cartels controlling everything illegal that crosses the border from Mexico.

As they gather scraps of information about Peter, Cork and Rainy are warned time and again that there is a war going on along the border. "Trust no one in Coronado County," is the most common piece of advice they receive, and Cork doesn't have to be told twice. To him, Arizona is alien country. The relentless heat, the absence of water and big trees and shade all feel nightmarish to him, as does his growing sense that Rainy might know more about what's going on than she's willing to admit in this fresh, exhilarating, and white-knuckle mystery starring one of the greatest heroes of fiction.

Cork and Rainy go to Arizona to save Rainy's son Peter ( )

A quick summer read. I have not read any other books in this series,but the book was written well enough that it didn’t matter. There isn’t really a mystery this is more of a “thriller” and figuring out who the mole in the organization was pretty easy.
The author is a little too preachy about the plight of illegals coming into this country but since is is a liberal from Minnesota, that was to be expected, as far as what side of the debate he would agree with.
That being said this author can write well crafted books that keeps your attention throughout. ( )

In this installment Cork travels to the desert southwest because his wife, Rainy, has gotten a call that her son is in trouble. They encounter warring cartels, drugs, coyotes bringing in illegal immigrants, and townspeople who are owned by one of these groups. I did not like this as well as the books set in Cork's homeland.

Good story but sadly this seems to be the case with book series that continue through 2017 publication. They begin to lean on politics instead of telling stories which is why we read them In the first place. Would be 4 stars if the story was told without the politics. When you go into story telling with a agenda your story suffers. The Garrison Keillor praise did not hold up well. ( )

A garbled phone call from Rainey’s son Peter sends buth Rainey and Cork to a remote Arizona location where they face searing heat, monsoon rains and drug cartels and they have no way to tell who to trust. ( )
