Henry Meloux, Cork's friend and spiritual advisor, asks the Minnesota sheriff turned private investigator to find Henry's long-lost son. Cork tracks the man to the Canadian town of Thunder Bay, Ontario, where it turns out he's a prominent (if reclusive) industrialist. When someone tries to kill Henry, and the evidence points to his son, Cork digs deep into his old friend's personal history, where he uncovers truths that might be best left buried
I have been desperate to continue with the Cork O’Connor series. So I was ecstatic to see book 7 – Thunder Bay – was being rerecorded by the primary narrator of the series, David Chandler. I love this series SO much. We get the history of Henry Meloux which is fantastic. There are also some family events and changes.
I don’t want to spoil any of this. The blurb says enough about the story. You do need to read these in order, I think, to know the characters and what the current status with Cork’s family. In Thunder Bay, for example, Jenny is getting ready to go to college. Cork is handling his first case as a private investigator.
We get quite a lot of historical aspects and the poor treatment of Native Americans which is so horrible. I loved having more about Henry and his past. The beauty of the natural world in northern Minnesota and the daily life happenings of Cork and his family, are such a joy. The mystery / suspense of these cases for Cork are my favorite type.
David Chandler is the narrator of this series for me, so I was happy they redid this one with his narration. He handles both the male and female voices well. The Minnesota locations and Indian words were pronounced as I expected. I loved listening, and at my usual 1.5x speed.
