Purgatory Ridge

Cork O'Connor Series

A Novel (Cork O'Connor Mystery Series Book 3)

William Kent Krueger

Purgatory Ridge tells the story of an explosion at a lumber mill near an ancient expanse of white pines sacred to the Anishinaabe. Wealthy industrialist Karl Lindstrom, who some members of the tribe suspect may be responsible, comes under scrutiny. Cork O'Connor, part Anishinaabe himself, is asked to help with the investigation. Meanwhile, a reclusive shipwreck survivor and his partner harbor their own grudges against Lindstrom. The precise and atmospheric prose of William Kent Krueger, combined with his keen sense of small-town life and the landscapes of northern Minnesota, make this a suspenseful and engaging read.
