I'm not sure how much I liked or did not like "Iron Lake". It certainly does not live up to " Tender", the only other book I have read by Krueger, either in depth or poignancy. That was a very special book, and led me to try the first of the "Cork" series. In comparison, I found this story overly complicated and with a few disturbing patterns. The main character is predictable, always being blindsided, getting into situations where someone is sneaking up on him, getting beaten up but not killed. In the end, I chose to take this latter pattern as humor. I did appreciate the various passages of insight on life, which are also found in "Tender". I haven decided, yet, whether to try another in the "Cork" series.
