Cork O'Connor, who used to watch over the territory as sheriff until he was voted out of office in a personal and professional meltdown, now tends a burger stand but still has a reputation as a go-to guy when trouble arises. It does so in the form of William Raye, an aging country singer who's looking for his daughter, Shiloh, a rock musician who disappeared several months earlier into the Boundary Waters, the thickly forested, lake-dotted area to the north. O'Connor isn't looking for work, but he takes the case because Shiloh is an Aurora native, and O'Connor hopes someone would do the same for him if any of his three kids were lost. Before he can even head into the woods, FBI agents show up, as well as an old casino gangster from Las Vegas. They, too, all want Shiloh found, but none will say exactly why. O'Connor, accompanied by two agents plus Raye, and a father and son from the local Anishinaabe tribe, packs up and heads out by canoe in what becomes a gritty, bloody adventure.

I liked Iron Lake enough that I sampled this second book in the series.
For almost 200 pages, I thought I'd found a good series, enjoyed Kreuger's writing style, his well-drawn, believable main characters, and the book's pace and suspense.
Then, increasingly, I felt that Kreuger couldn't decide where his plot was going. He drifted, tried one ending or villain after another. He tried to keep my interest with inserts of trite soap opera, hints that sadistic violence could be expected.
I wanted to like this series, so persisted another 100 pages. Then dumped it.

This mystery is a complicated family story involving a famous singer Shiloh who has been hiding out in a cabin in the Boundary waters.
Other than the psychopath killers, this is a wry and sometimes funny story of family bonds, what binds them and tears them apart.

2nd in the Cork O'Connor series, this continues stories in and around Aurora, MN and the boundary waters. Fast-paced and well-written, Boundary Waters gripped me; I had to keep reading to find out what happened. And, I am happy to report that I did not know who dunnit until it was revealed in the book, and it made sense. This is the highest praise I can give a mystery!

Country-western singer Shiloh disappears in the wilderness of northern Minnesota, and a search party sets out by canoe. It consists of her father, his friend Cork O'Connor, two FBI agents, and two natives who are father and son. They discover that others are trying to find her and kill her. The suspense is high, and the wilderness is wild, and Krueger writes with ability and respect for women and natives. It's a gripping story with many twists.
