Book #7 in the Cork O’Connor series (2007)
Happy and content in his hometown of Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O’Connor has left his badge behind and is ready for a life of relative peace, setting up shop as a private investigator. But his newfound state of calm is soon interrupted when Henry Meloux, the Ojibwe medicine man and Cork’s spiritual adviser, makes a request: Will Cork find his son?
When someone tries to kill Henry, and the evidence points to his son, Cork digs deep into his old friend’s personal history, where he uncovers truths that might be best left buried.
As Cork hastens to uncover the truth and save his friend, he soon discovers that his own life is in danger and is reminded that the promises we keep – even for the best of friends – can sometimes place us in the hands of our worst enemies.
