St. Paul writer Kent Krueger has turned his Cork O’Connor mysteries into a top-tier series and he outdoes himself in Heaven’s Keep. The story this time begins with O’Connor’s attorney wife, Jo, traveling west with clients when their charter plane flies into a blizzard and disappears in a wild part of the Wyoming Rockies.
Cork's frantic son convinces him to go west to find her, but a search in the rugged country in the winter is all but impossible. Months pass, and just as he is coming to terms with the death of his wife, the missing pilot’s wife comes to O’Connor with the stunning news that she doesn’t believe her husband was the man flying the plane, and that an investigator she’s hired to look into the crash has himself disappeared in Wyoming. So begins a family odyssey, searching for the truth. Who was flying the plane, was it truly an accident and—most importantly—what happened to the people on board?
