I read books like this for entertainment. I hate when an author adds his personal political agenda to the otherwise fairly good book. William Kent Krueger did this in Red Knife. At the end of the book.
The last chapter of the book adds nothing to the story and is the most opinionated thing I’ve ever seen in a fiction book.
I have been reading this series and enjoying it until I got to this. I have the entire series and may not finish it.
We live in a time of hot political debate over abortion, gun control and other problems that divide us. I hate that I paid for Krueger to surprise me by adding this crap to the end of the book. I can see this every day on any news channel or news publication.
If you don’t mind things like this then the book is still just OK in the series.
Maybe the author has run out of ideas for the “Cork” character. What a shame. I'll try the next book and if this continues I'm done with this and anything else Krueger writes.
with one exception, I don’t read romance novels. Kruger’s books, all 18 + of them, are without
exception the overall best writer I have ever read. After reading the first one I was hooked - I now
have all of them. He tells the story in such a way you are there with him, walking in the woods,
or facing whatever obstacles he encounters. He has a “sit on the front porch rocking chair” demeanor
that comes thru in all of his novels. I have but one promise & that is you won’t be disappointed.
