In Red Knife , Krueger gives his readers a vivid picture of racial conflict in small-town America, as well as a sensitive look at the secrets we keep from even those closest to us and the destructive nature of all that is left unsaid between fathers and sons, husbands and wives, friends and lovers.

A retainer. I need your help. See me today. The note and the money were from Alexander Kingbird, although it was signed Kakaik, which was the name of an Ojibwe war chief. It meant Hawk. How exactly, Cork wondered, did Kingbird think he could help? Kingbird and his wife, Rayette, lived on the Iron Lake Reservation. Their home was a nice prefab, constructed to look like a log cabin and set back a hundred yards off the road, behind a stand of red pines.
A narrow gravel lane cut straight through the trees to the house. As Cork drove up, his headlights swung across a shiny black Silverado parked in front.
And it was Blessing who opened the door when Cork knocked. Long black hair falling freely down his back. Tall, lean, tense. He reminded Cork of a sapling that in the old days might have been used for a rabbit snare: delicately balanced, ready to snap. Tammy: I'm finishing up the manuscript for Windigo Island, 14 in the series. It will be out next August.
Also at work on a companion novel to Ordinary Grace. I'm a huge fan of Kent's books, and it's the family slash personal drama that hooked me. Really people. Dealing with what life throws at them. And by the way, solving a murder mystery. I've got to say, the setting is so compelling as well.
I never thought about the significance of the name. Would've been a whole different thing if you'd named him Stone. Yes, Kris, Tammy is right.kick-cocoa.info/components/xumehuzy/koqyz-come-leggere-le.php

And I am sitting in my office, alone, laughing. Hi Kent!!! And laughing at Hallie.
So glad you named him Cork I love your series, and found this essay so interesting because I made exactly same choice regarding "static" characters when I started mine. I had no idea what I was doing, or if that first book would sell, much less become a series, but on that one thing I was very clear. Can't wait to read the new book! I just have to finish writing mine first If any of you readers have noticed that Gemma's new boss in the last couple of books is named Diane Krueger, she is indeed named after Kent's lovely wife.
Kent won the naming rights in a charity auction, bless him! Thanks, Deb, for that little bit of immortality for my lovely wife. She is so thrilled! A big hello and warm thank you to all the Jungle Reds for the invitation to visit. I'm enjoying this immensely. By the way, in my initial thinking, Cork was going to have a brother named Gar--a dark guy who loved swimming in murky waters. Looking forward to reading them, my home state is Minnesota which will make them even more interesting.
Thanks to Jungle Red Writers for recommending these books! This is a treat, Kent. Last year, I asked my bookseller buddy at Murder by the Book since closed, :- to suggest authors. Somehow, I didn't realize the book was part of series! It stood on its own so well. Well, now I'm thrilled. Can't wait to read the rest of your novels! How do you decide whether you'll work on a standalone or the Cork series? Or does that come more from the publisher? Well, I hope you didn't name his brother Walleye.
I lived in Minnesota for 6 years and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll pick up the first Cork story and read it soon! I saw a review for Iron Lake years ago, loved it, and now have read the 1st 8 books with the next 4 sitting on a book shelf. I grew up in Duluth in the 50s and live in Bloomington so I do enjoy all the references to familiar locations. Keep writing - please! I am going to take Kent's recommendation and start with Thunder Bay, if only so that I can pretend I am doing the reading I am supposed to be doing for the blog.
Red Knife (Cork O'Connor, #8) by William Kent Krueger
I'm bringing all my unsigned books for you to sign! Back from my workout at the YMCA. But with the success of Ordinary Grace, not a part of my series, my publisher has been more than willing to let me branch out. It's the deadlines these days that dictate the focus of my work. Kaye: I'd love to see you with an armload of my books at Killer Nashville! Just a note about series protagonists.
