Great plot, with some good twists in it, though it is clearly exhausting to be a sheriff in a small town in Northern Minnesota. ( )

Made the mistake of reading #6 before this one, so the ending was no surprise. Disappointed more in myself than the novel.

Kreuger successfully weaves two mysteries into one with /Mercy Falls/ when, first, there is an attempt on Cork’s life. Then, a mutilated body shows up. At first, there seems to be no connection, but as Cork investigates he finds strange overlaps in his working theories.

To further complicate things, the dead man is the son of a powerful Chicago mobster and half-brother to an old flame of Jo’s. Kreuger seems to have brainstormed as many bizarre complications as possible, then proceeded to artfully pull them together.

By far, my favorite addition with this book is Dina Willner. Here’s hoping she sticks around to help Cork for many more stories to come. ( )

William Kent Krueger knows how to write and gives his readers every reason to want more -a well thought out plot, a crime solver’s logic, believable and honest characters, and extraordinary descriptions. Left hanging there is really no option but to request book number six in the series. ( )

Tamarack County Sheriff Cork O'Connor and his deputy, Marsha Dross, are answering a domestic disturbance call on the Ojibwe reservation. When they arrive, they find the occupants of the house gone, their dogs dead, and then Marsha is seriously wounded by an unknown sniper. The investigation seems to indicate that the bullet was actually meant for Cork.

At the same time, Eddie Jacoby, a Chicago businessman trying to negotiate a contract with the local Indian casino, is murdered. Now Cork, already a man down, has to deal with Jacoby's murder and find the person who shot Marsha. What makes it worse is that Jacoby is from a wealthy Chicago family reputed to be associated with organized crime and Jacoby's brother used to be Cork's wife, Jo's, college boyfriend. Add into the mix one more element.....a beautiful private investigator hired by the Jacoby family who seems to have an attraction to Cork.

I listed to the audio of this book, narrated by David Chandler, who did a phenomenal job. One of the things I love about this series is the rural Minnesota setting. The characters are very believable and the author does a good job of detailing Cork's relationship with the Ojibwe, as he himself is part Anishinaabeg. I have never read a bad Kruger book and I was completely hooked by this compelling story.

Mercy Falls is the fifth book in the Cork O'Connor series and it received the Anthony Award for Best Mystery Book of 2006. I usually prefer to read a series in order, but this can easily be read as a standalone. Actually, if you commit to reading this book, you will also have to read the next book in the series, Copper River, because several threads of the story are not cleared up until then. ( )

A very good mystery. I liked the twist. But it ends as a cliff hanger. I wasn't expecting that. ( )
