Reviews

Praise for Windigo Island:

"A punch-to-the-gut blend of detective story and investigative fiction.... Krueger has written an investigative novel as blistering and crucial in its indictments of contemporary evil as The Jungle." * Booklist (starred review) *
"Krueger paints a vivid picture of the sordid cycle of poverty, abuse, alcoholism, and runaway (or throwaway) children on the reservation, and reminds us of the evil of men all too willing to exploit the innocent." * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *
"Krueger at his page-turning best - but this time with a higher purpose." * Duluth News Tribune *
"Krueger demonstrates his penchant and ability for finding deep, rich and new veins of stories from the seemingly inexhaustive mine of the rural and deceptively peaceful northern Minnesota and its surrounding environs." * Bookreporter *
"William Kent Krueger...writes with fresh passion and purpose in Windigo Island." * New York Times Book Review *
"Krueger juggles a large cast of characters deftly and doles out clues to the mystery judiciously. More important, he recognizes the complexity of this place and its people." * Columbus Dispatch *
"Krueger is skillful in many things - creating strong characters, building drama and conflict, braiding in Indian legend and spirituality, and spinning a good yarn - but sense of place may well be his forte." * Minneapolis Star Tribune *
Praise for Tamarack County:

"...a winter's tale that will both break and warm the reader's heart.... Krueger's evident empathy for the Ojibwe and their traditions and values blends seamlessly with horrific violence played out against O'Connor's struggles to heal his family's wounds-and his own." * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *
"...hold-your-breath suspense, heightened by the isolating blizzards of a Minnesota winter and the eerie presence of a stalker.... Because Krueger works in the history of his characters' relationships in a clear and elegant way, this exceptionally scary suspense story will prove riveting for both newcomers to the series and readers who have followed Cork as he and his family have aged and grown." * Booklist (starred review) *
"Krueger is in fine form in this superb, highly atmospheric tale, deftly capturing a wide range of emotions and conflicts between assorted characters. . .you're in for a real treat." * Lansing Journal (Michigan) *
