Description

When the Atomic Energy Commission puts the Vermilion One Mine on its shortlist of potential sites for storage of nuclear waste, a barrage of protest erupts in Tamarack County, Minnesota, and Cork O'Connor is hired to head security. His first day on the job, Cork stumbles across a secret room with the remains of six murder victims inside. Five appear to be nearly half a century old - connected to what the media had dubbed "The Vanishings," a series of unsolved disappearances in the summer of 1964, when Cork's father was sheriff in Tamarack County. But the sixth has been dead less than a week. What's worse, two of the bodies - including the most recent victim - were killed using Cork's own gun, one handed down to him from his father. As Cork searches for answers, he must dig into the darker passages of his family's past. New threats surface, and unless Cork can unravel the tangled thread of clues quickly, more death is sure to come to Tamarack County.

Professional reviews

"This is Krueger's tenth novel featuring Cork O'Connor, a rural Minnesota P.I. who is half-Ojibwa Indian. A group of bodies is found in an abandoned iron mine; they may be connected to a decades-old series of people gone missing. But among those bodies is a week-old murder victim killed with the same gun that killed one of the earlier victims. The story has lots of taciturn characters from Minnesota/Michigan's Upper Peninsula, along with many native Ojibwa. Buck Schirner does an outstanding job with the distinctive accents and idiomatic usages of the region. His talent for rendering dialects in a totally believable manner makes this a superior performance. His pacing is also spot-on for the many complex characters in this convoluted story. M.C.
