Sulfur Springs (Signed Book) (Cork O'Connor Series #16) by William Kent Krueger

In William Kent Krueger’s latest pulse-pounding thriller, Cork O’Connor’s search for a missing man in the Arizona desert puts him at the center of a violent power struggle along the Mexican border, a struggle that might cost Cork everything and everyone he holds most dear.

On the Fourth of July, just as fireworks are about to go off in Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O’Connor and his new bride Rainy Bisonette listen to a desperate voicemail left by Rainy's son, Peter. The message is garbled and full of static, but they hear Peter confess to the murder of someone named Rodriguez. When they try to contact him, they discover that his phone has gone dead.

The following morning, Cork and Rainy fly to Coronado County in southern Arizona, where Peter has been working as a counselor in a well-known drug rehab center. When they arrive, they learn that Peter was fired six months earlier and hasn’t been heard from since. So they head to the little desert town of Sulfur Springs where Peter has been receiving his mail. But no one in Sulfur Springs seems to know him. They do, however, recognize the name Rodriguez. Carlos Rodriguez is the head of a cartel that controls everything illegal crossing the border from Mexico into Coronado County.

As they gather scraps of information about Peter, Cork and Rainy are warned that there is a war going on along the border. “Trust no one in Coronado County,” is a refrain they hear again and again. And to Cork, Arizona is alien country. The relentless heat and absence of water, tall trees, and cool forests feel nightmarish to him, as does his growing sense that Rainy might know more about what's going on than she's willing to admit. And if he can't trust Rainy, who can he trust?

Featuring Krueger’s signature talent of “creating strong characters, building drama and conflict, braiding in Indian legend and spirituality, and spinning a good yarn” (Minneapolis Star Tribune), Sulfur Springs is a fresh, exhilarating, and white-knuckle mystery starring one of the greatest heroes of fiction.

One of the joys in reading a Cork O’Connor novel by William Kent K ...
One of the joys in reading a Cork O’Connor novel by William Kent Krueger are the graphic descriptions of his beloved North country of Minnesota, as well as his empathy for the natives. So, when Cork and his new wife of three months, Rainy Bisonette, are transported to the desert border between Arizona and Mexico, the question arises: Can the author match these qualities of the frigid north to the boiling south? Fear not: he same sensitive touch is applied to the arid geography with minute detail. The reason the practically-newlyweds have to go south arises from a cryptic voice message left on Rainy’s cell phone by Peter, her 29-year-old son from her first marriage, indicating he is in dire trouble. The couple immediately jumps on a plane and attempt to find him, which proves difficult in the extreme. When they get there they find themselves in a hornet’s nest of evil. To begin with, the next morning their rented Jeep is blown up. Luckily, Cork started it remotely from a safe distance. Competing drug lords vie for dominance. Greedy inhabitants seek Peter for advantage; Border Control and other agents, both Federal and local, complicate Cork’s task of finding Peter while Rainy is hidden by her ex-husband for her safety since the “bad guys” want to use her as a bargaining chip to entice Peter to surrender. Along with the drug cartels, the story depicts the difficulties of illegals crossing the border and the dessert, the coyotes, and other problems they face. Meanwhile, Cork does what he does best: he follows whatever clues turn up. The plot is multi-faceted and told simply and well, as should be expected from this author. The story is told with compassion, the action unfolds powerfully with emotion. Highly recommended.
