Cork O'Connor, part Irish and part Anishinaabe Indian, has separated from his wife and his job as sheriff of the Aurora, Minnesota Police Department, and is struggling with identity. During a local blizzard, a despised judge is found dead, and a young Ojibwe Indian boy seems to have disappeared. After two more deaths predicted by the spirit Windigo, Cork must separate Indian legend from the modern realities of conspiracy, corruption, and scandal that have erupted in his lakeside home.
Moderate toning to leaves, else fine in dust wrapper and protective mylar.
