Iron Lake by William Kent Krueger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Iron Lake keeps you guessing right up until the last page! You'll be rooting for Cork just two pages after wanting to smack him upside the head.
Krueger captures life in Minnesota lake country and Indian/White Man and Government tensions perfectly. You get the history without being buried in chapters full of mind numbing information. Learning from the characters themselves gives the whole book a very real feel, as if you could drive to Minnesota and find this town and these people.
Without spoiling the book, there are losses that hurt but I feel like if you find yourself desperately wanting a character death not to be true, the author gained a new fan. I'm a William Kent Krueger fan for certain.
