   Usual very good work by Kreuger
The author takes the same small town in far northern Minnesota and the same lead character, who is in or on the fringe of being sheriff all the time, and creates novel stories each time, more than a dozen of them. I rate them 4 stars, taking one off for minor flaws such as a few too many named characters for the average reader to remember the basic facts about each of them until they' ve read 3 or 4. He has resisted the temptation to use a ghostwriter for a whole book, unlike other top serial writers like Lee Child. The human flaws of his hero are more real than most serial heroes. May he keep up his good work.
The work of Mr. Krueger is excellent. It is emotionally rich. There are page- turners. I first came across this series when I was in Minnesota. This is the first book I have read in the series. The Boundary Waters are fascinating to me because of the rich history of the North Shore area.
   Really, Really Great
I have just finished Book 3. Wow! I can't say anything else. That was very tense. I have read the first two books. Which were just as good. I am a huge fan of the family of Cork. On my way with Mr. Kruger, I' ve read all of LouisePenny's books. Number one type of person is what I'm beginning with. Can't wait for it.

Couldn't wait to read the next story by this author. Krueger has the ability to bring emotional depth to his characters and develop a story of mystery and interest. You should put the coffee on because you won't want to put it down.
   Good, but not his best
Purgatory Ridge isn't as good as the first two. The ending is still a page turner. I like the characters and locale in this series. Being a big city person, it's refreshing to read books that take place in a small town where everyone knows everyone and some of them are bad.
   A dud
This is not a good read if you are looking for fun. The book was not very good. The author threw in a forest fire in order to jazz up the plot. Look for entertainment.
   Great continuing character series....
Just finished another mystery. Our boy is almost forced into a supporting role with his wife taking more of a central figure role. But that's fine. The stories are very much about family and that is reflected in the writing. It was a good mystery and an ultimate villain. The read is worth it. On to Volume 4. I'm sure you don't have to read these books in order, but I'm enjoying it.
   Love it
I am reading all of O' Connor's stories in chronological order, and I love them all more than the last one. The only problem with the book is that I am not getting enough sleep. My job performance is not good, but I don't care. I enjoy these stories a lot. I feel like I know his characters because he constructs them well. He still surprises me in the plots. He is great!
   The writer knows where I live
Been reading the first in the series. My wife and I are going to book. If you' re a Minnesotan, you have an extra treat in hearing familiar names. The writer does home work. I believe the book was written for meus. He knew our interests. The Native American culture and history is based on reality. Writing so you feel, smell, and see what is happening with twist and turns that boggle your mind. Kruger doesn't play fair. Better than Fargo, that's what you hear.
