From acclaimed author William Kent Krueger comes the seventh
profound, action-packed suspense novel in his award-winning
Cork O'Conner mystery series.The promise, as I remember it,
happened this way.Happy and content in his hometown of
Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O'Connor has left his badge behind
and is ready for a life of relative peace, setting up shop
as a private investigator. But his newfound state of calm is
soon interrupted when Henry Meloux, the Ojibwe medicine man
and Cork's spiritual adviser, makes a request: Will Cork
find the son that Henry fathered long ago?With little to go
on, Cork uses his investigative skills to locate Henry
Wellington, a wealthy and reclusive industrialist living in
Thunder Bay, Ontario. When a murder attempt is made on old
Meloux's life, all clues point north across the border. But
why would Wellington want his father dead? This question
takes Cork on a journey through time as he unravels the
story of Meloux's 1920s adventure in the ore-rich wilderness
of Canada, where his love for a beautiful woman, far outside
his culture, led him into a trap of treachery, greed, and
murder.The past and present collide along the rocky shores
of Thunder Bay, where a father's unconditional love is
tested by a son's deeply felt resentment, and where jealousy
and revenge remain the code among men. As Cork hastens to
uncover the truth and save his friend, he soon discovers
that his own life is in danger and is reminded that the
promises we keep - even for the best of friends - can
sometimes place us in the hands of our worst enemies.
