From acclaimed author William Kent Krueger comes the seventh profound, action-packed suspense novel in his award-winning Cork O'Conner mystery series. The promise, as I remember it, happened this way. Happy and content in his hometown of Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O'Connor has left his badge behind and is ready for a life of relative peace, setting up shop as a private investigator. But his newfound state of calm is soon interrupted when Henry Meloux, the Ojibwe medicine man and Cork's spiritual adviser, makes a request: Will Cork find the son that Henry fathered long ago? With little to go on, Cork uses his investigative skills to locate Henry Wellington, a wealthy and reclusive industrialist living in Thunder Bay, Ontario. When a murder attempt is made on old Meloux's life, all clues point north across the border. But why would Wellington want his father dead? This question takes Cork on a journey through time as he unravels the story of Meloux's 1920s adventure in the ore-rich wilderness of Canada, where his love for a beautiful woman, far outside his culture, led him into a trap of treachery, greed, and murder. The past and present collide along the rocky shores of Thunder Bay, where a father's unconditional love is tested by a son's deeply felt resentment, and where jealousy and revenge remain the code among men. As Cork hastens to uncover the truth and save his friend, he soon discovers that his own life is in danger and is reminded that the promises we keep - even for the best of friends - can sometimes place us in the hands of our worst enemies.

4.0 Review of Thunder Bay by William Kent Krueger
I had not read a Krueger book in at least a year, and I now question why I had put it off for so long. I always very much enjoy the Cork O'Connor series and this entry was better than most as I remember it. It tells the back story of Henry Meloux, who has been the local Native American wise man an...

3.5 Readerly rambles (a mini-review of Thunder Bay by William Kent Krueger)
This is the 7th book in the Cork O'Connor series. I've been reading them in order with my scribd subscription. At this point, I need to take a break from the series, because I've binge read so many that they are starting to blend together. When I mentally organize my books/reading tastes, I put th...

3.0 Thunder Bay (Cork O'Connor, #7)
Nice fast-moving stuff; the third of Krueger's Cork O'Connor mysteries that I've read. This one's about fathers and children, with the old wise man Henry making a deathbed effort to find his lost son, and the domestic parallel for O'Connor being the unwanted pregnancy of his daughter. There's an int...
