Blood Hollow

Blood Hollow - William Kent Krueger I enjoyed this one very much. It moved along at a good clip, and I walked merrily down the garden path following Krueger's red herring, till very close to the end. We also got quite a bit more of O'Corcoran's bicultural background, and Krueger strenuously resisted the temptation - perhaps it wasn't there for him - to demonize the Catholic side in favour of the Native side. Quite the opposite in fact.

Most bizarre discovery: a plastic surgeon who remakes another young woman in his dead daughter's image. Most welcome development: the author is clearly moving O'Corcoran back into the sheriff's job here. The implausibilities surrounding a layman's investigations are the one ongoing complaint I have with this series.
