I had to read to the end to solve the mystery. It took place near Hayward, WI and North Dakota where we use to live. Tough topic of circle of prostitution and difficulty getting out of the abusive life.

I think this is my favorite series now. Cork O'Connor is flawed, but not irritating. The location and Ojibwa background add to the appeal. William Kent Krueger continues his winning streak with this one.

Some members of the O'Connor family take a back seat in this book but nothing is lost. A very good book about native girls being trafficked in Duluth and North Dakota. Cork, Jenny, Henry and some family members of a missing girl investigate. Cork, still reeling from family tragedies in Tamarack County vows to save the girl at any cost, but a high price is paid by Jenny instead. Krueger had a down period in this series but the last couple have been very good.
