Publisher's Summary

When the Atomic Energy Commission puts the Vermilion One Mine on its shortlist of potential sites for storage of nuclear waste, a barrage of protest erupts in Tamarack County, Minnesota, and Cork O’Connor is hired to head security.

His first day on the job, Cork stumbles across a secret room with the remains of six murder victims inside. Five appear to be nearly half a century old - connected to what the media had dubbed “The Vanishings,” a series of unsolved disappearances in the summer of 1964, when Cork’s father was sheriff in Tamarack County. But the sixth has been dead less than a week. What’s worse, two of the bodies - including the most recent victim - were killed using Cork’s own gun, one handed down to him from his father.

As Cork searches for answers, he must dig into the darker passages of his family’s past. New threats surface, and unless Cork can unravel the tangled thread of clues quickly, more death is sure to come to Tamarack County.

    "Henry who?"

    You can't change the way a character's name is pronounced 10 books into a series, Very distracting to hear Henry's name pronounced "wrong" each time

    "Another Great Cork O'Connor Mystery!!"

    Great mystery and full of suspense. The historic information and the suspense keep you wanting for more. The characters are great. Have recommended Cork O'Connor books to nearly anyone who will listen. This is another of the great stories William Kent Krueger brings to life in the character of Cork O'Connor!

    Story
    "more than enough"

    I've read every book in this series, and have now officially grown exhausted. The shape of the story is much like a Ross McDonald novel, with the sins of the past, long buried, surfacing to plague the present. But the story-in-a-story became a self-indulgent family history with a pop psychology float. The repression of memory is unbelievable and takes far to long to work through.

    "Why?????"

    Why a reader or for that matter an author would change a very important characters name in the middle of a series is just completely beyond understanding,,,,just plain stupid!!!

    "Not my favorite of WKK."

    I’ve really enjoyed this series by WKK but a big part of this story line I was really disappointed in. Knowing Cork through the all the other books this is just too much in my mind. As a stand alone book it’d be very good.

    "Another must read"

    seems like the further I get into this series, the better the writing and plot lines get. Definitely evolving the characters.

    Story
    "Changed a central character name 10 books in?"
    Would you try another book from William Kent Krueger and/or Buck Schirner?

    Maybe but my interest is waning FAST


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something they pronounce the characters names correctly


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mis-pronunciation of established character name.


    Could you see Vermilion Drift being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    "Good story, awful narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The Cork O'connor series is a great series and I have enjoyed every one of them, but Buck Schirner is terrible as a narrator. Every character sounds like a old man. Every single character. He does women particularly badly but there are times when you can't tell who is talking because they all sound like cranky old men. And changing the pronunciation of Henry Meloux's name after having narrated at least two others in the series??? It is very disconcerting to have his name changed 10 books into the series. Schirner couldn't remember from one book to the next how to pronounce it? Is there no one editing or double-checking these? Cannot wait to get back to the original narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Buck Schirner’s performances?

    Only because I don't want to miss any in the series. Otherwise, I would not listen to him ever again. If I had a choice of listening to another of his performances or choosing another book, I would choose another book. Whoever told him he would make a good narrator could not possibly have listened to anything he has done.


    Any additional comments?

    A good narrator is nearly as important as a good story. It is so important that I will probably get the next in the series on my Kindle and not listen to any more in the series until the original narrator is back. Schirner is that awful to listen to.
