(From the publisher):
During a houseboat vacation on the remote Lake of the Woods, a violent gale sweeps through unexpectedly, stranding Cork and his daughter, Jenny, on a devastated island where the wind has ushered in a force far darker and more deadly than any storm.
Amid the wreckage, Cork and Jenny discover an old trapper's cabin where they find the body of a teenage girl. She wasn't killed by the storm, however; she'd been bound and tortured before she died. They also stumble upon a place nearby, once hidden but now exposed by the vicious winds. There they find a baby boy, hungry and dehydrated, but still very much alive.
Powerful forces intent on securing the child pursue them to the isolated Northwest Angle, where it is impossible to tell who among the residents is in league with the devil. Cork understands that to save his family he must solve the puzzle of this mysterious child whom death follows like a shadow.
Part thriller, part mystery, part exploration of the human heart, "Northwest Angle" is a dynamic addition to William Kent Krueger's critically acclaimed, award-winning series.
