Another series that I particularly enjoy is the Cork O'Connor series by William Kent Krueger. Cork began the series as the former sheriff of a small Minnesota town, and is a sheriff on the run in the current book. The sense of place is extraordinary in this series, and much action takes place in the woods and on the boundary waters. I was concerned about this fifth book, since the fourth book, Mercy Falls, ended with Cork being on the run. But, the sense of place, although a different place, is also evident in Copper Creek. Cork is the target of a hit, put out by a mobster who thinks Cork killed his son. He ends up in Michigan with a bullet wound in his leg, staying with a cousin who is a veterinarian. When his cousin's teenage son and his friends get involved in a bad situation, Cork must choose between staying hidden and getting involved to help. A really good entry in a good series!
