I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are engaging and the setting helps make the story. A teen-aged girl is found dead in the snow after a party. Cork O'Connor investigates her murder until warned off by the sheriff. He then finds himself trying to help a young man wrongfully accused of the crime. ( )

I love the Cork O'Connor series, and have discovered that listening to these books on audiobooks is a great way to enjoy the series. This one begins with the body of a young high school girl found on the ice in a cold January blizzard. It's not clear at first whether it was an accident, suicide or homicide, but Cork feels in his gut that this one is a murder most foul. There are too many unexplained circumstances and questions as to why this girl went out on her snowmobile on New Year's eve with a big storm coming. Cork is asked by the family to try to determine what happened to Charlotte. Even though he is no longer sheriff, his instincts and skills in investigation have not left him. While his investigation continues he discovers secret after secret, and shock after shock about Charlotte and her family and friends. This is where the story fell a little short for me because there were just too many shocking and coincidental secrets. But, nevertheless, I still really enjoyed the story. I am grateful that I discovered this series, and all of William Kent Krueger's books. He's one of my favourite authors and I won't rest until I've read all of his books. ( )

The mystery includes the tension between the Native American community and the European community. Not a lot of players but I was caught completely by surprise by the solution as well as most of the developments. I have already read two of Kruger’s books in the usual way. Reading as an audible listen works well for his style also.
I can see why this book won an award. ( )

I had let too much time go by between reading the Cork O’Connor series which is a shame as they are brilliantly written and full of suspense. Blood Hollow by William Kent Krueger is the 4th book in the series and it won a well-deserved Anthony Award in 2005. It totally pulled me in and held my attention throughout.

Blood Hollow is a chilling story of the murder of a beautiful teen, Charlotte Kane, who is found months after she disappeared on a drunken snowmobile ride on New Year’s Eve. Cork, the ex-sheriff and his wife, lawyer Jo, are working together to represent a young, brooding and troubled Indian, Solemn Winter Moon who has been accused of her death. Cork finds himself in conflict with the new, politically motivated sheriff as well as many other town folk who are ready to accept Solemn’s guilt.

Much of the story line in this book revolves around religion, in particular the Catholic Church as Solemn claims to have had a vision of Jesus, and this attracts religious zealots on both sides to the small town in Northern Minnesota. Cork fully realizes the mess that he’s expected to untangle but he is still quite taken aback at the unsavoury family drama that is revealed as the plot twists and turns on it’s way to a thrilling climax.

Hopefully I can get back on track with this series as the author’s excellent writing skills, his strong atmospheric settings and thrilling plots make for some great reading. ( )

After 17-year-old Charlotte Kane--the beautiful, brilliant, and brooding daughter of a rich widower--disappears on a drunken New Years' Eve snowmobile ride, a raging blizzard soon snuffs out all search efforts. When her body is found during the spring thaw four months later, preliminary evidence implicates her ex-boyfriend--Ojibwe bad-boy, Solemn Winter Moon.

Former sheriff Cork O’Connor helps his wife Jo find information to defend Solemn from murder charges. This was a somewhat complicated story with a lot of characters. Although not that suspenseful until the end, the story was quite interesting. I enjoyed Cork’s meandering investigation. There were several characters who had surprising secrets. Good family relationships rounded things out for an enjoyable read. ( )
