In William Kent Krueger's "finest work" (Michael Connelly), detective Cork O'Connor unravels a mystery for his old friend, Henry Meloux, only to get caught in the blistering crossfire of jealousy and revenge.
The promise, as I remember it, happened this way.
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, an Ojibwe medicine man and Cork's spiritual adviser, makes a request: Will Cork find the son that Henry fathered long ago?
With little to go on, Cork uses his investigative skills to locate Henry Wellington, a wealthy and reclusive industrialist living in Thunder Bay, Ontario. When a murder attempt is made on old Meloux's life, all clues point north across the border. But why would Wellington want his father dead? This question takes Cork on a journey through time as he unravels the story of Meloux's 1920s adventure in the ore-rich wilderness of Canada, where his love for a beautiful woman, far outside his culture, led him into a trap of treachery, greed, and murder.
The past and present collide along the rocky shores of Thunder Bay, where a father's unconditional love is tested by a son's deeply felt resentment, and where jealousy and revenge remain the code among men. 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.

with one exception, I don’t read romance novels. Kruger’s books, all 18 + of them, are without
exception the overall best writer I have ever read. After reading the first one I was hooked - I now
have all of them. He tells the story in such a way you are there with him, walking in the woods,
or facing whatever obstacles he encounters. He has a “sit on the front porch rocking chair” demeanor
that comes thru in all of his novels. I have but one promise & that is you won’t be disappointed.
I really recommend this book.
The story is really Henry's and spans seventy years of the old man's life. Cork is forced to step away from a crisis with his family to help the old man connect his past. In the process, people lose their lives and long standing mysteries are resolved.
I found it to be a fast, engrossing read.

Nun ist Zahltag: Meloux will, dass O'Connor ihn zu seinem lange vermissten unehelichen Sohn bringt, weil er spürt, dass dieser ihn braucht. das sieht der Sohn aber ganz anders… Im Zusammenspiel von Ermittlung und Rückblicken auf Meloux' Leben entwickelt sich eine Geschichte von Freundschaft und Liebe, aber auch zerstörerischer Gier… Wie immer: Schöne Sprache, Spannung, Naturschauspiele - ein absoluter Pageturner!
