Iron Lake by William Kent Krueger

Book #1 in the Cork O’Connor series.

Cork O’Connor is part Ojibwe and part Irish. He lives in northern Minnesota.

Author William Kent Krueger lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. And didn’t get this — his first book — published until age-40.

Embittered over losing his job as Sheriff — and over the marital meltdown that has separated him from his wife and children, Cork gets by on heavy doses of caffeine, nicotine, and guilt.

Once a cop on Chicago’s South Side, there’s not much that can shock him.

But when a powerful local politician is brutally murdered the same night a young Indian boy goes missing, Cork takes on a harrowing case of corruption, conspiracy, and scandal.

As a blizzard buries Aurora and an old medicine man warns of the arrival of a blood-thirsty mythic beast called the Windigo, Cork must dig for answers hard and fast before more people, among them those he loves, will die.
