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.

    "Beware , liberal bleeding heart agenda."

    And as the book drags on and on the author shows his Liberal Political agenda for writing the book - Bashing the Nation's agenda of protecting ourselves from invasion of south and central american illegal immigrants. NOT RECOMMMENDED.

    "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.

    Story
    "Cork should stay in Minnesota "

    Not your typical Cork O'CONNOR book since he is called to Arizona to solve a mess of problems which don't really come together until far into the book. In addition to this unfamiliar setting Cork is verging on the behavior of a teenage boy in his jealousy and gushing love for Rainy. It almost gets sappy. Not the best; hopefully Krueger will return to Cork's roots.

    "Excellent story with vivid descriptions."

    As one who lives in S. Arizona, I really enjoyed the descriptions of the heat, weather, people and places! The added bonus of an engaging story line added to the enjoyment. The characters are well described and filled out to make them believable. Well done.

    "Good story but too political for my taste"
    If you could sum up Sulfur Springs in three words, what would they be?

    Good mystery but didn't like the refugee focus


    Any additional comments?

    I have been a WKK fan from the beginning. Love the northern Minnesota stories. While I understand his sympathy for Mexican refugees just opening our borders to uncontrolled immigration is not practical. He could have put the focus on the horrible places and people in Mexico causing people to risk their lives to sneak into the US.

    "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?.

    Story
    "Para-Í-so NO "D""

    Paradise in Spanish is paraíso, NOT paradíso. There is no D.
    Mr. Chandler, if you ever need to read Spanish again, please get a tutor to help you with proper pronunciation & enunciation. Your accent is HORRIFIC. Other than that, I liked the book and have no problem with Mr. Krueger using HIS novel as a platform to have his say. It is his book after all and I do not have to read it.
    Knowing many Mexicans, Guatemalans, El Salvadorans and others from the Latin American culture, I feel their pain and understand their plight. It is not a pretty story and we, Americans, often are extremely judgmental about those who travel north against tremendous odds, seeking a better life. Sadly, I think many arrive and find the streets are NOT paved with gold and there is no gold at the end of the rainbow, as a matter of fact, there is no rainbow. Many times those undocumented people make better citizens than those with the birthright to be here. For the most part, they, the undocumented, just want to work, mind their own business and send some money back 'home' to help the families left behind, often living in extreme poverty. I have no beef with people trying to make a living, and i do not feel like they are 'taking our jobs.' Borders are a man made idea, NOT God's. One day, the world will be WITHOUT BORDERS and we will all live in peace and security with plenty for all. Until that day comes, I have no problem with Mr. K using his novel to say what he wishes. I LOVE these Cork O'Connor stories and like Rainy a WHOLE lot better than I ever liked Jo. I am glad she is gone. She was a shrew and a harridan in my opinion! Ready for the next one Mr. K.
