    Aug 15, 2018

    When Cork's son Stephen has a vision, one he doesn't understand he turns to the now ancient midi, Henry. Love his character, though he is now a hundred years old. A senators plane crashes, a senator whose agenda angered many. She was sympathetic to those on the Iron Lake reservation wh...

    Having read my way through the whole series I have been waiting for this book to come out and boy was it worth the wait! It was so good to visit with old friends again. Stephen gets a lot of mileage in this book and hopefully begins to see himself as he really is. Waaboo continues t...

    This book, Desolation Mountain is the 17th book in the Cork O'Connor series by William Kent Krueger. The setting for this series is northern Minnesota and in particular, Tamarack County and the Ojibwe Iron Lake Reservation. I have read several books in this series and I advise that alt...

    It all seems to begin with a troubling vision Stephen O?Connor has that is burdening him. He seeks answers from Henry Meloux but when a plane carrying their US Senator crashes on nearby Desolation Mountain, Stephen believes that event is connected to what he?s seen. When he, Cork a...

    William Kent Krueger writes of a mountain in northeast Minnesota called Desolation Mountain. There are no peaks in the state that could actually be considered ?mountains,? but the highest point is one in the far northeast corner called Eagle Mountain. I?m not sure if it?s near ...

    A lot of controversy in the Goodreads reviews. Not for me. Solid 4.5 stars. The local U.S. Senator is coming to town to speak against a planned mining operation (and perhaps her broader agenda against arming violent regimes in unstable places around the world), but her plane crashes my...

    Just a few paragraphs into this book and I could feel myself relaxing and melding into its atmosphere. Cork O?Connor?s son, Stephen, is explaining to Henry Meloux, the Ojibwe elder and healer, a vision he doesn?t understand. This vision is recurring, and it is menacing. I gradual...

    First Sentence: He watches the boy on the steep rise above him. A private plane crashes on Desolation Mountain. Among those on board was Senator McCarthy and most of her family. Getting to the crash site and investigating the wreckage isn't as routine as normal as barriers are erect...

    This is my recent read from my favorite genre which is mystery suspense. It is book 17 in the Cork O'Connor series. If you haven't started this series, you should by reading book 1, Iron Lake. Krueger's writing beautifully captures a sense of place but with a powerful emotional punch. ...

    My expectations were sky high as I started reading this book. I had read and loved Krueger?s Edgar Award winning book entitled ?Ordinary Grace? and this was my standard. This was a different genre and was good but, well, different. Still it was well written and good enough. ...

    Stephen O?Connor, Cork O?Connor?s young son, has always had visions presaging tragedies. This novel is based on one in which he sees an eagle shot from the sky and a menace he can?t identify at his back. And then a plane carrying a U.S. Senator and her family crashes on Desol...

    Stephen O'Connor, Cork's son, has a recurring, ominous vision of a boy shooting an eagle out of the sky with his bow & arrow. Stephen feels great danger and is unsure what the dream means. A senator's plane crashes on Desolation Mountain and everyone on board is killed. Former sher...

    Another fine entry in one of my favorite series. Cork O'Connor, his son Stephen, and several friends (members of the local Anishinabe tribe) become involved the investigation into the plane crash that killed a prominent senator--even though every possible government agency that could b...

    Cork and his family have such dedication to each other and those they share their community with. The love of their land the sense of peace that they feel there is beautiful. Holding his family close Cork and an his old friend Bo are going to find the truth of what threatens this preci...

    Not going to lie, haven?t really been a fan of Stephen?s in the last several books so when I read the first chapter and realized he was going to play a bigger role in this one I put it down. Glad it was on the night stand as it was close by when I finished a book last night and nee...

    Desolation Mountain returns Cork and his family to northern Minnesota and the roots of the series. Stephen plays a bigger role and demonstrates more capabilities. I enjoyed this book far more than Sulfur Springs but less than earlier books in the series. While this book is a solid 3.5 ...

    Krueger?s Cork O?Connor never disappoints me. This series is full of an appreciation of Native American beliefs, love of nature and of family, and morality in the face of evil. ...

    The plot line on this one was a little far fetched, but I love the Krueger's characters and writing so much that I was willing to suspend disbelief. ...

    Another great William Kent Krueger book. What I like most about the Cork O'Connor books is they are a quick read, have excellent plots and the violence that is in the book is left to the reader's imagination. The very last paragraph gave just a wee little peek of things to come in the ...

    Desolation Mountain by William Kent Krueger Desolation Mountain is the 17th book in William Kent Krueger?s Cork O?Connor Series. If you?ve followed this series, you know that Cork O?Connor is the former sheriff of Tamarak County turned businessman and part-time investigator. H...

    This tale could have been named To Kill an Eagle. There is tragedy on Devil?s Eye. ?On official maps, Desolation was the name of the mountain, but the Ojibwe called it Majimanidoo-oshkiinzhig, which meant, more or less, Devil?s Eye.? We are back again with our main protagoni...

    The story of Corcoran O'Connor [Cork], formerly Sheriff of Tamarack County and now a Private Investigator continues. Tamarack County is located in the deep North Woods, where the Ojibwe Indian Reservation is located. Desolation Mountain contains the usual cast of characters: Cork, his ...

    Stephen O?Connor?s vision is a frightening one of an eagle shot from the sky, an egg dropped, and horrific, menacing danger. Troubled by his inability to understand the vision, Stephen seeks out Henry Meloux, an Ojibwe elder and healer. When a plane crash on Desolation Mountain...

    This is the 16th book from Krueger's Cork O'Connor series set in Northern Minnesota. This story starts out with Cork's son Stephan having a vision that he doesn't understand. This vision keeps haunting him. It turns out the vision represents the state senator's plane crashing into a...

    I always enjoy Krueger?s books and this was one of his best. When a senator?s plane crashes on an isolated mountain, too many people come out to investigate, and some start disappearing. Cork O?Connor, his son, friends and other members of his family are picked up, beaten, threat...

    William Kent Krueger's 17th Cork O'Connor book continues to please, written from the soul and advancing the lives of the extended O'Connor family. Over the years we have seen Cork move from sheriff to private investigator, from husband to widower to husband, from father to grandfath...

    This book, Desolation Mountain is the 17th book in the Cork O'Connor series by William Kent Krueger. The setting for this series is northern Minnesota and in particular, Tamarack County and the Ojibwe Iron Lake Reservation. I have read several books in this series and I advise that alt...

    It all seems to begin with a troubling vision Stephen O?Connor has that is burdening him. He seeks answers from Henry Meloux but when a plane carrying their US Senator crashes on nearby Desolation Mountain, Stephen believes that event is connected to what he?s seen. When he, Cork a...

    William Kent Krueger writes of a mountain in northeast Minnesota called Desolation Mountain. There are no peaks in the state that could actually be considered ?mountains,? but the highest point is one in the far northeast corner called Eagle Mountain. I?m not sure if it?s near ...

    Just a few paragraphs into this book and I could feel myself relaxing and melding into its atmosphere. Cork O?Connor?s son, Stephen, is explaining to Henry Meloux, the Ojibwe elder and healer, a vision he doesn?t understand. This vision is recurring, and it is menacing. I gradual...

    I barely finished this one. But I plodded along and fought the urge to quit it. Now, I'm sorry I did finish. Because the explanations were as poor as the confusions were humongous. The joylessness of this group has become overwhelming as a "mide" characteristic, IMHO. But that's not...

    This is my recent read from my favorite genre which is mystery suspense. It is book 17 in the Cork O'Connor series. If you haven't started this series, you should by reading book 1, Iron Lake. Krueger's writing beautifully captures a sense of place but with a powerful emotional punch. ...

    This tale could have been named To Kill an Eagle. There is tragedy on Devil?s Eye. ?On official maps, Desolation was the name of the mountain, but the Ojibwe called it Majimanidoo-oshkiinzhig, which meant, more or less, Devil?s Eye.? We are back again with our main protagoni...

    This is my recent read from my favorite genre which is mystery suspense. It is book 17 in the Cork O'Connor series. If you haven't started this series, you should by reading book 1, Iron Lake. Krueger's writing beautifully captures a sense of place but with a powerful emotional punch. ...

    Having read my way through the whole series I have been waiting for this book to come out and boy was it worth the wait! It was so good to visit with old friends again. Stephen gets a lot of mileage in this book and hopefully begins to see himself as he really is. Waaboo continues t...

    This tale could have been named To Kill an Eagle. There is tragedy on Devil?s Eye. ?On official maps, Desolation was the name of the mountain, but the Ojibwe called it Majimanidoo-oshkiinzhig, which meant, more or less, Devil?s Eye.? We are back again with our main protagoni...

    Stephen O?Connor?s vision is a frightening one of an eagle shot from the sky, an egg dropped, and horrific, menacing danger. Troubled by his inability to understand the vision, Stephen seeks out Henry Meloux, an Ojibwe elder and healer. When a plane crash on Desolation Mountain...

    This is the 16th book from Krueger's Cork O'Connor series set in Northern Minnesota. This story starts out with Cork's son Stephan having a vision that he doesn't understand. This vision keeps haunting him. It turns out the vision represents the state senator's plane crashing into a...

    I always enjoy Krueger?s books and this was one of his best. When a senator?s plane crashes on an isolated mountain, too many people come out to investigate, and some start disappearing. Cork O?Connor, his son, friends and other members of his family are picked up, beaten, threat...
