Read Sulfur Springs (Cork O'Connor, #16) Online Free - On the Fourth of July, just as fireworks are about to go off in Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O’Connor and his new bride Rainy Bisonette listen to a desperate voicemail left by Rainy's son, Peter. The message is garbled and full of static, but they hear Peter confess to the murder of someone named Rodriguez. When they try to contact him, they discover that his phone has gone dead.
The following morning, Cork and Rainy fly to Coronado County in southern Arizona, where Peter has been working as a counselor in a well-known drug rehab center. When they arrive, they learn that Peter was fired six months earlier and hasn’t been heard from since. So they head to the little desert town of Sulfur Springs where Peter has been receiving his mail. But no one in Sulfur Springs seems to know him. They do, however, recognize the name Rodriguez. Carlos Rodriguez is the head of a cartel that controls everything illegal crossing the border from Mexico into Coronado County.
As they gather scraps of information about Peter, Cork and Rainy are warned that there is a war going on along the border. “Trust no one in Coronado County,” is a refrain they hear again and again. And to Cork, Arizona is alien country. The relentless heat and absence of water, tall trees, and cool forests feel nightmarish to him, as does his growing sense that Rainy might know more about what's going on than she's willing to admit. And if he can't trust Rainy, who can he trust?

I’ve read all 15 of the previous books in the Cork O'Connor series, and this is the first time I’ve rated one of them less than four stars.
Krueger has set this book mostly in southern Arizona where drug running and illegal immigration are hot topics. He's written that he’s received negative feedb...

William Kent Krueger writes one of the most consistent series out there. Each book is a solid 4 star effort. This one opens with a call from Cork O'Connor's second wife, Rainy Bisonette's son Peter which is garbled and ends prematurely, but makes clear he is in trouble and may have killed someone...

A good intricate mystery if you don't mind Mexican drug cartels, border struggles and desert heat. The main attraction of Krueger's books for me is the Minnesota setting and I sadly missed the pine trees, lakes and references to Ojibiwa culture.

Latest in a beloved series. This time Cork goes to Arizona, and Krueger does as great a job with the natural world of the desert as he does with the landscape of the northern midwest.

Perfectly serviceable but did not offer much beyond the Joy of Cooking recipe for chicken broccoli casserole.

Best Cork book in years. Change of setting in this, but no change in great writing. Loved the story, the characters are still pretty incredible.

Like other mystery writers who spend years on a series, ie, James Lee Burke, Krueger periodically shifts locale away from Minnesota, including stories based in Michigan, Chicago, and Wyoming. In this 15th mystery of the Cork Corcoran series, Cork and his new wife, Rainy, go to the borderlands of...
