Product Description


“William Kent Krueger can’t write a bad book. Northwest Angle is one of his best. A complex crime novel that contains meditations on the difficulties of loving and the paths we take to reach God, this Cork O’Connor novel has everything you want in a great read: depth, action, and credibility.” —Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dead Reckoning

“Part adventure, part mystery, and all knockout thriller. . . Catch-your breath suspense throughout.” —Booklist

“Solid storytelling and intriguing characterizations combine for a sobering look at the power of family and faith and Native American culture. Krueger never writes the same book twice as each installment finds him delving deeper into Cork's psyche.” —Publishers Weekly (starred)

“William Kent Krueger never writes the same book twice, and this one is no exception. He combines elements of mystery and thriller to make a book that is non-stop entertainment. But Krueger never forgets the human aspect, which is always the driving force of his carefully crafted novels.... This outstanding book, the eleventh in the O’Connor series, should not be missed.” —Deadly Pleasures

"Well-written and suspenseful, this book contains characters worthy of our emotional involvement. Krueger, as always, spins a good yarn, somewhat in the style of Dick Francis in his heyday, where both ingenuity and endurance are necessary to sustain the hero." —Cleveland Plain Dealer

Among William Kent Kruger`s many talents is his ability to present the reader with a great sense of place. In this case it is the Lake of the Woods area, both in Canada and the United States. He makes you want to visit the area, but also makes you feel that you should be looking over your shoulder frequently while you are there.
He also is one of the few non-Aboriginal writers that can create an Aboriginal sense of place as well, social, spiritual as well as physical. He does this with a narrative that makes you stay up way too late as you try to second guess what is going to happen next.

Another winner from Krueger. Read one "Cork" novel and you have to read them all.

3.0 out of 5 stars They do grow up. March 1 2015
By Perry B. Alers, aka peebee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a Cork O'Connor fan, and have kept up with him throughout his series, but I was rather disappointed in this one. Cork has traditionally operated more or less by himself, but in this outing he is accompanied by his now-grown family plus several others as they all vacation on the Lake of the Woods in northern Minnesota. Though the writer wrangles them well, the effect is that of an unwieldy mob. The story thus unfolds in many directions. There is an abandoned infant to whom one of his daughters immediately bonds, a near-psychotic young Indian in a cigarette boat, a batch of hostile survivalist "Christians" who occupy a remote island, and a helpful, if not quite straightforward, resort owner who provides water transport. One sometimes wishes for a clipboard. There is a fair amount of bloodshed before everything resolves, but we finally return safely to Square One. It is clear, however, that Cork will soon be completely on his own. How Mr. Kruger will manage this remains to be seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner for Me Sept. 10 2016
By Jo from Texas - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
William Kent Krueger writes novels that I would describe as action/ mystery/ drama combos. This Cork O'Connor novel had a bit of a different twist from his usual plots, which I enjoyed. A little more philosophy, too. As always, Krueger's descriptions of the different locales are so beautifully written that it is easy to picture the action as if I were watching a movie. This just finished the eleventh of the fourteen in this entertaining series for me. I will miss them when I finiish. I am glad that I started with Iron Lake, the first one.

One of Krueger's earlier books was very dark and I didn't know if I'd risk reading another. But the master storyteller is back. He is spiritual and insightful. He is tough and tender. He faces real problems and difficult decisions. His plots twist and turn. And as always, he keeps us in suspense. A great read for anyone.
5.0 out of 5 stars I truly enjoy them. This one was a little more predictable ... July 27 2016
By Georgianna - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read all but the last 3 Krueger books. I truly enjoy them. This one was a little more predictable than the rest. Somewhere in the middle it became obvious who the real "bad guys" were going to be but it didn't destroy the journey.
3.0 out of 5 stars Slow to go Aug. 18 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Though I like this author, I found the emphasis on diapering and feeding the orphaned baby to be repetitive, also Cork's family ties seemed overly predictable. The suspense picked up momentum later in the book.
