The Year of Mysterious Giveaways: July 2011
Are you ready for this one? I am really excited to give away this new thriller by William Kent Krueger. If you have not read him, he is an extremely talented writer. He will suck you in.
This book is #11 in the Cork O'Connor series but I've been told you do not have to read them in order, unless you are super OCD about that kind of stuff.
He is a local author for me. He lives in St. Paul, MN. I had the chance to meet him many years ago during a drop by signing of his stock at my bookstore. The one thing I remember was his comment to me. He said "You are a really good bookseller!". To explain, I had to help several customers while he was waiting for me to gather up his stock to sign. He watched me for about 10 minutes bustling around! Thanks to him for that comment.
Here is a description of Northwest Angle from the author's website:
During a houseboat vacation on the remote Lake of the Woods, a violent gale sweeps through unexpectedly, stranding Cork and his daughter, Jenny, on a devastated island where the wind has ushered in a force far darker and more deadly than any storm. Amid the wreckage, Cork and Jenny discover an old trapper’s cabin where they find the body of a teenage girl. She wasn’t killed by the storm, however; she’d been bound and tortured before she died. Whimpering sounds coming from outside the cabin lead them to a tangle of branches toppled by the vicious winds. Underneath the debris, they find a baby boy, hungry and dehydrated, but still very much alive. Powerful forces intent on securing the child pursue them to the isolated Northwest Angle, where it’s impossible to tell who among the residents is in league with the devil. Cork understands that to save his family he must solve the puzzle of this mysterious child whom death follows like a shadow.
