IRON LAKE by William Kent Krueger

By Theresa de Valence - Posted on 10 February 2010

I’ve heard a lot of talk on DorothyL about William Kent Krueger. Finally, last year I started to read BLOOD HOLLOW but I never finished it and don’t remember why. But still, I’ve wanted to be interested in William Kent Krueger for a long time—— possibly because Carl Brookins and Peter Rennebohm like him, or possibly because the stories are located in Minnesota. Anyway, it’s been in my mind to give him another try.

I’ve just finished IRON LAKE, copyright 1998, staying up way past my bedtime.

IRON LAKE is full of rich, pleasurable feeling, even though it's winter time. The plot is interesting, with many unexpected pieces. Cork O’Connor is sexy in a warm cuddly way, not because he’s friendly—he’s rough around all the edges—but because he’s honest and he’s trying, in spite of his personality (which is his main handicap), to do what he feels is right.

Here is proof that reading an author’s books in order is a good thing. I care deeply about this protag. Now I’m going to find William Kent Krueger’s other nine books. What a delight I have in store for me!
