In a way, I'm sorry I read this book before reading the preceding books in the Cork O'Connor series but I got an opportunity to mooch this volume so I went for it. Nevertheless, this was a totally engaging story and kept me enthralled until I finished it in less than two days.

The plot covers much more than simple Crime Fiction as it contains elements of love, adventure, family, spirituality, revenge, greed, friendship, community, etc.

The basic plot is that O'Connor's wife and seven others disappear on a flight over the mountains of Wyoming. The story unfolds from there with a few sub-plots that tie directly into the main narrative. This is a very well written, tightly constructed book. I'll leave it at that, not wanting to inadvertently expose any spoilers. The Goodreads summary provides a good snapshot of the book. You'll find it here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/63....

I've now read the 8th (Iron Lake) and 9th books in the series. I think I will make it a point to wait until I get my hands on the other books so I can read them in order.

William Kent Krueger, like Peter Temple, Alan Furst, Robert B. Parker, Jonathan Kellerman, Patrick O'Brian and a few others, is an author whose writing transcends the genre he's chosen to write in. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
