David Chandler provides a strong performance of Krueger's latest Cork O'Connor novel. The fifth in the series finds the Minnesota sheriff with Ojibwe family ties involved in an investigation that becomes dangerously personal. After his partner is shot and a car bomb nearly kills his daughter, it's clear that someone is out to get him. Chandler is spot-on in the action-packed manhunt for this brutal killer, and compassionate in his characterization of Cork as the underpinnings of his life begin to erode. Chandler's narration highlights the characters' humanity, foibles, and self-doubts, as well as their sudden, often surprising, insights. Murder and kidnapping in the Minnesota North Woods, fully realized characters, and an ending that will stun listeners combine to take this a step beyond the ordinary mystery.
