Lordy, I’m feeling good!!!! I have decided to take time out from reading books for others in order to read exactly what I want. So where did I start? With my all time favorite author who writes my all time favorite series starring my all time favorite protagonist, of course. Mercy Falls is book #5 of William Kent Krueger’s Cork O’Connor series and what a sweet (as in stellar) ride this one was!
Anyone who reads my reviews knows I have a lot of go-to authors who I always rave about. William Kent Krueger is special. He is THE cream of the crop of the elite group of crime/thriller writers that I dearly love. His characters are so engaging and endearing. I cry over sheriff (or non-sheriff, depending on the book) Cork and his travails. I love his wife Jo, attorney for the Ojibwe Indian Reservation, and their three kids who grow before our eyes as the series moves along. I am also always looking for Henry Meloux to make an appearance. Henry is an elderly Indian, very sage and very grounding for Cork. These characters are complex and sympathetic, and personal relationships play a significant role in this series.
Mr. Krueger’s plots are first class. They are dark (though not graphic) and incredibly multilayered, and you never know where they are going. The O’Connor plots are carefully structured and lead to plenty of intrigue, action and suspense. There are also quiet moments for reflection and appreciation. Appreciation for the local culture and the land. I have visited northern Minnesota on several occasions and it is indeed God’s country; Mr. Krueger brings it to life like no other author. The writing is strong. The writing is elegant. The writing makes the reader FEEL.
Mercy Falls embodies all of the above. The dark compelling plot puts Cork and his entire family in grave danger. There are also potential threats to Cork’s marriage from two different avenues. The ending found my heart in my throat and my hands grabbing for book #6.
My advice to readers is twofold. First, get a handle on your reading obligations. If you don’t, those books that have been screaming your name are going to get away. Remember, you only live once. Second, read Iron Lake and see if you don’t feel the magic of Aurora, Minnesota, and the world of Cork O’Connor. This is one series where the books keep getting better and better. Jump on the train and see if you don’t fall in love too.

After that, he logged timber, worked construction, tried his hand at freelance journalism, and eventually ended up researching child development at the University of Minnesota. He currently makes his living as a full-time author. He’s been married for over 40 years to a marvelous woman who is an attorney. He makes his home in St. Paul, a city he dearly loves.
Krueger writes a mystery series set in the north woods of Minnesota. His protagonist is Cork O’Connor, the former sheriff of Tamarack County and a man of mixed heritage—part Irish and part Ojibwe.

His last five novels were all New York Times bestsellers.
