Publisher's Summary

In William Kent Krueger's latest pulse-pounding thriller, Cork O'Connor's search for a missing man in the Arizona desert puts him at the center of a violent power struggle along the Mexican border, a struggle that might cost Cork everything and everyone he holds most dear.

On the Fourth of July, just as fireworks are about to go off in Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O'Connor and his new bride Rainy Bisonette listen to a desperate voicemail left by Rainy's son, Peter. The message is garbled and full of static, but they hear Peter confess to the murder of someone named Rodriguez. When they try to contact him, they discover that his phone has gone dead.

The following morning, Cork and Rainy fly to Coronado County in southern Arizona, where Peter has been working as a counselor in a well-known drug rehab center. When they arrive, they learn that Peter was fired six months earlier and hasn't been heard from since. So they head to the little desert town of Sulfur Springs where Peter has been receiving his mail. But no one in Sulfur Springs seems to know him. They do, however, recognize the name Rodriguez. Carlos Rodriguez is the head of a cartel that controls everything illegal crossing the border from Mexico into Coronado County.

As they gather scraps of information about Peter, Cork and Rainy are warned that there is a war going on along the border. "Trust no one in Coronado County" is a refrain they hear again and again. And to Cork, Arizona is alien country. The relentless heat and absence of water, tall trees, and cool forests feel nightmarish to him, as does his growing sense that Rainy might know more about what's going on than she's willing to admit. And if he can't trust Rainy, who can he trust?

Featuring Krueger's signature talent of "creating strong characters, building drama and conflict, braiding in Indian legend and spirituality, and spinning a good yarn" (Minneapolis Star Tribune), Sulfur Springs is a fresh, exhilarating, and white-knuckle mystery starring one of the greatest heroes of fiction.

    "Mr. Krueger you never fail to bring great stories. Thank you"

    It was worth the wait as usual. I don't want to take for granted your writing, I read a lot and you are the top of my favorite authors.
    I really enjoyed this new arena, have to say I missed Minnesota and all the great characters, but hopefully everyone will read and enjoy this very well written cast of characters as much as I have.
    Will be waiting for your next great book. Also David was superb, it is like an old friend bringing your words to life. Don't ever change narrators.

    "Too PREACHY to"

    we do not agree with the smuggling of illegals into the US and the obvious slant of the author. we need to work on the millions of poor that are US citizens first

    "Not like the other book in series skip this one"

    Sulphur Springs was horrible. Expected another great book about northern USA wide open spaces, instead got a lecture in AZ about why we should be compassionate about illegal aliens coming into US illegally. Totally bait and switch. Really disappointing after the other great books in this series.

    "Always Awesome Story"
    What did you love best about Sulfur Springs?

    The story line, the plot, what is there not to love if you love a good story as well as a good mystery. This story was somewhat different as it was written from first person in the beginning and then later transitioned to more of third person. I love that it recognizes the spirituality of human beings.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Cork. He is the main character, miss Rose, but I will anxiously waiting to see how Rainey is developed.


    Which character – as performed by David Chandler – was your favorite?

    I love David Chandler. He also narrates Joe Pickett by CJ Box. I would have to see David is a top notch narrator and one of my favorites along with George Guidall.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book kept my interest from the very beginning until the very end.


    Any additional comments?

    I want to hear/read more about Cork, Rainey, their family including Henry Moulux?.

    "Krueger & Chandler at their best!"

    So happy to see another Book in the Cork series. The storyline was timely & thought provoking. Chandler's narration is superb as always. Krueger paints the settings in his writing without me even realizing it. Whether it's a lake in the woods of Minnesota or an abandoned mine in the desert of Arizona, I'm right there. Thanks to both of you for a fantastic read!

    "I always look forward to the next installment"

    I always look forward to the next installment being released. Great character development, and an excellent police procedural. The narrator brings it all together. I highly recommend this book and series. The first book in the series should be the starting point to fully enjoy this book.

    Story
    "A Liberal Manifesto."

    Don't you hate it when a good actor that you really have liked for years all of a sudden appears in some political ad spewing how they feel about some political issue?

    This is what this book is. Loved the series until this liberal manifesto disguised as a novel came out.

    Controlling immigration BAD. Characters for open borders that help illegal immigrants cross GOOD. Characters that want any kind of border control BAD. Illegal immigrants all HELPLESS CHILDREN dying in the desert because bad people won't let them in. On and on.

    I long for the day when actors would act, singers would sing, and novel writers would write entertaining novels without feeling entitled to shove their political beliefs down your throat.

    People invest hours and hours reading or listening to an author because they admire their ART. Artists betray their audiences when they do this. Just like you should be extra careful what you say when you are drunk with alcohol, you should also be careful what you say when you are drunk with fame...

    Story
    "Preachy"

    I have read all of Krueger's books so far and he does get a little preachy. This time he went overboard. He reduced a very complex problem with illegal immigration to "scared people write stupid laws" that should be ignored. Border Patrolmen enforcing those laws think that people who look Hispanic are more likely to be illegally in this country than people who look Scandinavian. Everybody who enters this country illegally is really a good person. So in the plot of this book because bad laws should be ignored we end up with the good guys killing lots of people and in some cases hiding the bodies because, like immigration laws we don't believe in, dealing with the legal consequences of the killings would be inconvenient.

    David Chandler did an excellent job of narrating and the story was engaging.
