Yearly Count: 15
Cork O'Connor is an ex-Sheriff of a small town in Minnesota. He gets involved in a case regarding a teenaged girl gone missing on New Year's Eve.
Throwing caution to the wind (and going with what was available), I decided to finally give this series by Krueger a try. I have 3 hardcovers on my TBR shelf and a few audiobooks in iTunes, and this was the closest to the beginning. I've already given myself permission to read series out of order (sense of freedom comes with that), but I would have liked to have started closer to #1.
While I am glad to have finally met Cork and his family, I admit that I am a little disappointed in him. His personality didn't stand out or bring any spark to the story. :( Following leads with him to dead ends or proceeding forward with new information was very realistic, so I did like the plot - minus the religion. I just hope when I meet up with him again, I grow to actually like him. Right now, he's just blasé.
