Reviews

"Marvelous. I've long been a fan of William Kent Krueger's Cork O'Connor series, and this essential novel allows us to witness how young Cork developed and matured. Not just a story of fathers and sons, it's also a tale of Natives and settlers and how laws such as the Indian Relocation Act influenced both...A gripping, heartbreaking tale with beautiful writing, vividly drawn characters, and a story you won't be able to put down." --David Heska Wanbli Weiden, Edgar and Anthony Award-nominated author of Winter Counts
"Poignant, powerful, and mesmerizing... Krueger skillfully blends big, suspenseful moments with quiet, keenly observed insights into human nature. This novel is rich with wisdom about right and wrong, choice and change, fathers and sons, and the ways in which loss can shape us as profoundly as love." --Amazon Book Review
"There's a feel that you get from a master craftsman, a saddle that sits right, a fly rod that casts with its own agility, or a series of books written with a grace and precision so stunning that you'd swear the stories were your own." --Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire series
"Among thoughtful readers, William Kent Krueger holds a very special place in the pantheon. Kent showed the mystery reading world that a protagonist need not be a chain-smoking loner with lots of emotional baggage but he could be an honest and admirable family man doing his best for all the right reasons." -- C.J. Box, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Krueger's gift is to illustrate the dynamics of history and culture through up-close-and-personal stories." --The New York Journal of Books
"This sensitive, moving prequel introduces and draws readers into the series. Krueger has written another perceptive coming-of-age novel, the poignant story of a father and son trying to understand each other." --Library Journal (starred review)
Praise for the Cork O'Connor Series

"A brilliant achievement, and one every crime reader and writer needs to celebrate." --Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Madness of Crowds
"Lightning Strike explores the tender relationship between father and son. It is written with grace and understanding. It is a stunning novel that will captivate readers even if they've never read a Cork O'Connor mystery." --Denver Post
Winner of Left Coast Crime Award for Best Mystery Novel

"William Kent Krueger is a master storyteller at the top of his game with Lightning Strike. A pitch perfect, richly imagined story that is both an edge-of-your-seat thriller and an evocative, emotionally-charged coming of age tale that explores the complex bonds between fathers and sons and the long simmering animosities of the past. This is a beautifully written novel that packs a powerful punch. I loved it." --Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Four Winds
