"Explores the tension between belief and truth, between protecting a sacred place and embracing technological progress, between having empathy for a cause and taking action to defend it...Krueger has crafted a gripping thriller...steeped in the mythology of American Indian tribes of Minnesota...[a] deeply spiritual novel. Read it with your heart." (Minneapolis Star Tribune)
“A mystery made up of several shiver-inducing levers . . . [with] a plot that keeps tightening around O’Connor and the granddaughter—and the reader’s nerves. A first-rate addition to this series.” (Booklist)
"A gripping thriller." (Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel)
"Krueger keeps the tension high." (Twin Cities Pioneer Press)
“The characters, story and plot will haunt you long after you’ve read the last page, but it's Krueger’s strong and sure descriptive prose that lingers the longest.” (Bookreporter)
Praise for Windigo Island:
“A punch-to-the-gut blend of detective story and investigative fiction.... Krueger has written an investigative novel as blistering and crucial in its indictments of contemporary evil as The Jungle.” (Booklist (starred review))
“Krueger paints a vivid picture of the sordid cycle of poverty, abuse, alcoholism, and runaway (or throwaway) children on the reservation, and reminds us of the evil of men all too willing to exploit the innocent.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))
“Krueger at his page-turning best — but this time with a higher purpose.” (Duluth News Tribune)
“Krueger demonstrates his penchant and ability for finding deep, rich and new veins of stories from the seemingly inexhaustive mine of the rural and deceptively peaceful northern Minnesota and its surrounding environs." (Bookreporter)
“William Kent Krueger…writes with fresh passion and purpose in Windigo Island.” (New York Times Book Review)

His writing is so descriptive and insightful, thoughtful and provocative.
His writing evokes such a ‘sense of place’ that I feel that I know this ‘Boundary Waters Area’ intimately.
“The trees lining the path felt like dark walls that day, and the narrow strip of sky above was like a ribbon torn from some soiled and shabby fabric.”
His characters are familiar to me, like close friends or neighbors. The plots play out as morality plays. Tensions weave in and out of every character, movement and place.
MANITOU CANYON does not disappoint in any way.
