Author Discussion & Signing with William Kent Krueger

This is William Kent Kreuger's probably 5th visit to Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore. This time it is for his 11th Cork O'Connor mystery, Northwest Angle. I've started reading my ARC of the book already and it's GOOD!

Synopsis

William Kent Krueger's next nail-biting suspense in his critically-acclaimed, award-winning series, featuring private detective Cork O'Connor.

Library Journal

Star of a series that includes the recent best-selling Vermilion Drift, Cork O'Connor is enjoying a houseboat vacation with his daughter on Lake of the Woods when a violent storm forces them to seek shelter on an island. There they discover the body of a teenage girl and a baby boy who's alive, if whimpering. Soon someone or something is chasing them to a remote area called Northwest Angle. Dependably scary stuff from award winner Krueger.

Synopsis

It's July, 1975 and an overworked Chicago police force receives a call that an 85-year-old white man has been attacked by a gang of black youths on the lakefront in Burnham Park. Amid public outrage, contentious Mayor Richard J. Daley commands his police to find the killers fast and make the bucolic park safe again.Uncommonly but fortunately for the police, twelve-year-old James Overstreet steps forward and identifies five of the six assailants and arrests are made. But detectives and county attorneys bungle the case, leaving the judge no choice but to release the accused.This startling turn of events jeopardizes James's life, forcing the entire Overstreet family into witness protection in Arizona, and creates a nightmare that will haunt the brave witness forever.Fast-forward thirty years. The stoic young man has grown to become Maricopa County's most feared prosecutor. But his life is about to be turned upside down when paths from the past cross into the present, veering toward a shocking climax.
