Super excited! Just finished Sulfur Springs of the WKK series.

I started with Iron Lake last year and plowed through them all in 2017!

I thought it was a great series.

I have read them all also and really enjoy them. I usually read when I travel on business and I find it hard to put them down to go to sleep at night.

I've found his work extremely up and down. Lately, down. Although I'll continue to recommend reading each of them, in order, from the beginning, his best work might be his books from 2001-10.

Great author, one of my favorites. I enjoy the series and can't put the book down once I start reading.

I've only read 2-3 so far and enjoyed them. Is it best to read in order?

it is best to read them in order as the character relationships continue to grow/disintegrate through the series.
his latest book isn't part of the Cork O'Connor series, but it's a good stand alone book.

William Kent Krueger spoke at a benefit for assisting Native American women and girls caught up in trafficking , the subject of Windigo Island.
When he signed my copy, I mentioned I was a fellow BWCA paddler. He told me "I used to say to myself 'someone needs to write a book about this beautiful place.' So I did."
