The Mystery Book Group’s next meeting is Friday, September 5th, and from 1:30 to 2:30 pm we’ll discuss Copper River, by William Kent Krueger, the 6th book in the Cork O’Connor mysteries series.  From NoveList, provided by BadgerLink:   “The sixth Cork O’Connor mystery finds the Minnesota sheriff on the run from hired killers. With a bullet wound in his leg, he makes it to the small town of Bodine, where he hides out with his cousin. But Corks convalescence is cut short by a murderous child-runaway conspiracy, not to mention his cousins teenage son, who’s so desperate for a father figure that he thinks Cork would be a likely candidate. This series gets darker and more elegantly written with every book. Minnesota has a become a hotbed of hard-boiled crime fiction, and the Cork OConnor novels are among the best. — David Pitt (Reviewed 06-01-2006) (Booklist, vol 102, number 19, p42)”
