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?

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.

This title just didn't interest me like the other ones I have read in this series. Yes, it was an easy read, but the others took more time and had more depth. Also Henry did not make an appearance in this one, he was just talked about. This is one of my favorite mystery series even though I began...

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.
