A short review to update challenges
Wow. I can’t stop listening to this Cork O’Connor series, Purgatory Ridge was an awesome suspenseful mystery. Just wow! It’s gripping and full of heart-pounding action. Many people showed their authentic selves – good, bad and ugly.
Cork continues to improves his life and connection with his family. He considers his role in life and his career in law enforcement. The plot was layered, difficult and amazing. I loved the strength of the women and children to survive their kidnapping. I was terrified they would hurt, that they would die.
I can’t recommend this series highly enough, if you like mysteries, law enforcement and Native American folklore. I know I’ll be reading it all.
I listened at my usual 1.25x speed with the comfort of the same narrator from the first two books. The narrator was so comfortable and it was a pleasure to listen. The Minnesota locations and Indian words were pronounced as I expected. I enjoyed both male and female voices and the performance adding to the emotional quality of the story.
