Desperately avoiding the clutches of professional hit men who have already put a bullet in his leg, Cork finds sanctuary outside the small Michigan town of Bodine. But while he's hiding out in an old resort owned by his cousin Jewell DuBois, a bitter widow with a fourteen-year-old son named Ren, the body of a young girl surfaces along the banks of the Copper River -- and then another teenager vanishes. Instead of thwarting his assassins, Cork focuses on tracking a ring of killers who prey on innocent children -- before anyone else falls victim. But as his deadly followers close in, Cork realizes he's made an error any good man might make -- and it may be his last.

A short review to update challenges
I like the Native American cultures, the gorgeous natural world and mystery suspense in this Cork O’Connor series. I’m loving the fact my library has these on audio. Copper River is a continuation of the cliffhanger in Mercy Falls but also a new story.
There isn’t much of Cork’s story of hiding out from hitman, because he’s hiding out. Of course, his estranged relatives end up having their own murder mystery which Cork and Dina solve. It’s a little odd Dina is there but I like her and I’ve come to like her friendship with Cork. I have to wonder if we will see more of her in the future. I am a bit unhappy Cork couldn’t make a brief call to his family sooner to let them know the situation, or have someone else make a brief call.
The story is a horrific abuse of young teens, pretty much all teen girls. The worst details are not shared very clearly but it’s obvious it’s not right. I love Cork making a new, better connection with his relatives. The contract on Cork is resolved quickly, as we knew the actual killer already.
David Chandler is the narrator of this series for me. I enjoyed listening at my 1.5x speed. The male and female voices were well performed. The Michigan locations and Indian words were pronounced as I expected.
