I’m on a William Kent Krueger/Cork O’Connor roll. So far this week I’ve read three of his novels in the series and I’m current reading “Trickster’s Point. Before you ask, the answer is yes, I really like this series.



The dying don’t easily become the dead.

Even with an arrow in his heart, Jubal Little took three hours to die. Politician that he was, most of that time he couldn’t stop talking. At first, he talked about the arrow. Not how it got there—he believed he knew the answer to that—but arguing with Cork over whether to try to pull it out or push it through. Corcoran O’Connor did neither.

What do you think?

Would you keep reading?
