There are great characters, a strong sense of place, a lot of good Native American lore and the midwestern small town feel. Krueger does a great job of misdirection keeping you away from the final solution until near the end. Author also places at least one FBI mistake in the middle of the book--this one is true to his promise. Good book. ( )
Really enjoying this series, but I am worried about Cork - how much more physical abuse can he take :)?
Kinda fun to start a series that already has 18 books in it - I'm reading them fairly close together so I'm remembering the storylines for all the characters. Looking forward to number 4!
Another great book in the Cork O'Connor series! I am so enjoying my journey with these characters and the lovely Minnesota setting.
I've really enjoyed all of William Kent Kueger's books, both standalone and the Cork O'Connor series. I think this is the best so far of this series, with a little something for everyone. There are great characters, a strong sense of place, a lot of good Native American lore, mystery, excitement, and romance. There were actually multiple seemingly unrelated mysteries that came together in the end.
As with many towns that have a strong Native American presence, not to mention logging interests, there is always friction in the town, and in this story, the town becomes a powder keg about to explode - well, actually, there is an explosion at one point and it seems like there may be more on the way as emotions run high. The interests of the town collide with the interests of the Native American residents, along with the out-of-town treehuggers and the mill owners. Lots of excitement throughout.
More time well spent with Corc O'Connor. This third novel in the series was very interesting. There wasn't as much of Corc in this one as the two previous books. The story was interesting and everything held together well mystery wise. The secondary characters continue to be interesting. I really enjoyed John Lapere's story. On to the next one.

William Kent Krueger is the award-winning author of the popular Cork O'Connor mysteries. In Purgatory Ridge, Krueger crafts a riveting tale which has ex-sheriff O'Connor on the case after a heated town debate turns deadly. The local Anishinaabe Indian tribe is furious to discover that Karl Lindstrom's lumber mill is after a grove of trees sacred to tribal lore. So when the mill gets bombed, killing a man, the tribe is blamed. But O'Connor has a different theory.
