In William Kent Krueger’s “finest work” (Michael Connelly), detective Cork O’Connor unravels a mystery for his old friend Henry Meloux, only to get caught in the blistering crossfire of jealousy and revenge. The promise, as I remember it, happened this way. Happy and content in his hometown of Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O’Connor has left his badge behind and is ready for a life of relative peace, setting up shop as a private investigator. But his newfound state of calm is soon interrupted when Henry Meloux, an Ojibwe medicine man and Cork’s spiritual adviser, makes a request: Will Cork find the son that Henry fathered long ago? With little to go on, Cork uses his investigative skills to locate Henry Wellington, a wealthy and reclusive industrialist living in Thunder Bay, Ontario. When a murder attempt is made on old Meloux’s life, all clues point north across the border. But why would Wellington want his father dead? This question takes Cork on a journey through time as he unravels the story of Meloux’s 1920s adventure in the ore-rich wilderness of Canada, where his love for a beautiful woman, far outside his culture, led him into a trap of treachery, greed, and murder. The past and present collide along the rocky shores of Thunder Bay, where a father’s unconditional love is tested by a son’s deeply felt resentment, and where jealousy and revenge remain the code among men. As Cork hastens to uncover the truth and save his friend, he soon discovers that his own life is in danger and is reminded that the promises we keep—even for the best of friends—can sometimes place us in the hands of our worst enemies.

This one rated a 5 Star review mostly because of the native lore and backstories. I love this series and so when it seemed to have a slow start (please find my 71 year old son, whom I've never met - - ho hum), I just kept on reading, trusting in Krueger to work his magic. And did he ever!! I've always loved the character Henry Meloux, the 90+ year old Okjibwe "midi" or medicine man/healer. He lets us know about his own back story in this wonderful and engaging novel. The "ho-hum" thoughts in the early pages are quickly replaced by "Wow!" as the tension increases and the pages must be turned faster and faster. Meloux has been Cork's spiritual advisor most of his life, and now Cork tries to give back a little. The POV was Cork himself this time, and that was fine for me. The setting this time is more in the Canadian woods than Minnesota, but I loved it just as much or more. I could feel the danger and the suspense and cringed at the violence. The denouement and ending were perfectly executed....no "mercy Falls" cliffhanger this time (thanks). So, it's on to #8.

I couldn’t put this novel down. It is number seven in the series, and, in my opinion, the best yet. On the cover is a prepublication endorsement from Author Michael Connelly who says, “Thunder Bay is William Kent Krueger’s finest work. A strong story with a fast-beating heart.” I agree completely. I highly recommend this book, and all the others in this series. David B.

I've been able to read the Cork O'Connor books in sequence, and the variations between them have been interesting. The last two, Blood Hollow and Mercy Falls, which were linked, strayed a bit, I felt, as Mr. Kruger experimented with mixing a drama-of-human-hearts with cops-and-robbers. (His poetic descriptions of the north woods of Minnesota and Canada have never wavered in quality.) He still hasn't quite abandoned the plot-driving manipulations of rich, evil old men and their wholly-owned thugs, but now he's back among real people, in particular Cork's aged Ojibwe healer and seer, Henry Meloux. We at last become acquainted with Henry's back story, which in turn drives the current action. It gets complicated toward the end, and I advise the reader to keep a notepad at hand to track whose father/brother/son is whose, but it all works out in some climactic gunplay, and Cork returns to his family unharmed. By the way, he's now no longer a sheriff but rather a private investigator, which will probably free him up a bit in the future.

As I have previously written in reviews of the earlier books in this series, I love this series. This installment offers a shift in narration, which added a nice e element in the developing series. The book focuses on and old story linked to a new story of one of the more iconic of the series characters. As a backdrop to this we find the O'Connor family progressing through life. If you had enjoyed other books in the series, you'll love this one.

I seem to be reading out of order a lot but really enjoyed learning about Henry and other details in the series. This is a wonderful series and I have read or listened to most. The audio editions are wonderful!

Thanks to William Kent Krueger for continuing the Cork O'Connor stories! Can't wait for the next one.

I bought "Thunder Bay" after reading a few reviews on Amazon. Amazon had sent suggestions that I would like this novel and other novels by William Kent Krueger, I think because I like Steve Hamilton. I sat down yesterday morning, in my recliner, with the sun over my shoulder and started reading. I could not put down the book, I was instantly engrossed in the story line. Cork comes alive in the words on paper, as do all the other characters in the novel. I want to know more about them. Yesterday when I finished the book (with tears in my eyes), I ordered four more of the books on Amazon. Today in my Gold Box Deals I found four more which I ordered immediately. So within the next few days I will have eight more of Mr. Krueger's books to read and I am really anxious to do so. I will try to do them in the order written so I can follow the growth and transformations of the characters. Henry Meloux is a great fictional persona, I almost feel as if he is real. When you read this novel, you actually visualize, quite clearly, exactly where you are. You can "feel" the trees and "see" the water. Wow. There are other little stories woven into the mystery, Cork's daughter and her boyfriend and his son Stevie and a love of dogs. (that is what may me cry, a good cry) Read this novel and you will find yourself ordering more books in the series as I did.

Strong entry in this great series. The back story of a young Henry Meloux I found fascinating. This my seventh volume (reading them in order which I don't always do when I find a new character, but is paying off nicely for me here) and enjoy getting to know the characters more intimately as the series progresses.
Each book in this series seems better than the previous one.

Thunder Bay is so much more than just a mystery . . . it's a story about people and families who have real lives that aren't always lived the way we want. There's sadness and joy . . . love and lust . . . and personal growth as we follow the characters we've come to know from one book to the next.

There's even a glimpse of native American culture and values that may just help us to reevaluate our own. And, of course, there's mystery and action and excitement to keep us turning the pages.

Krueger is a gifted writer and storyteller, and his books are a delight.
