The Novel Desolation Mountain by William Kent Krueger is "A winning mystery with more than a few surprises."- Publishers Weekly and is full of "Elegiac and frightful detail.. dynamic action scenes."-The New York TImes.
When a private plane carrying aa U.S. senator and her family crashes in a remote area of northern Minnesota, killing everyone on board, Cork O'Connor, his son Stephen, and several Ojibwe men from the Iron Lake Reservation are among the first responders. The crash site lies in the shadow of Desolation Mountain, known to the Ojibwe people as Devil's eye, a cursed place. They've barely begun to sift through the wreckage when the FBI arrives and assumes control of the situation, immediately dismissing Cork and the other searchers. Not long afterward, when the Ojibwe first responders begin to vanish mysteriously, the mountain seems to be living up to its sinister reputation.
As Cork and Stephen investigate both the disappearances and the mystery at the heart of the crash itself, they find themselves blocked at every turn by interference from federal agencies. Misdirected by lies from the goverment, uncertain whom to trust, Cork and Stephen begin to understand that there is a menace lurking in the great Northwoods far more alevolent than they could ever have imagined, a dark power surrounding Desolation Mountain that treatens not only them but also everyone they love.
