When a charter plane carrying Cork OâÈçConnorâÈçs wife, Jo, goes missing in a snowstorm over the Wyoming Rockies, Cork must accept the terrible truth that his wife is gone forever. But is she? In HeavenâÈçs Keep , celebrated author William Kent Krueger puts his intrepid hero through the most harrowing mission of his life. In the dark days following JoâÈçs disappearance, Cork struggles to cope with his grief. Then two women show up at his doorstep with evidence that the pilot of JoâÈçs plane was not the man he claimed to be. It may not be definitive proof, but itâÈçs a ray of light in the darkness surrounding CorkâÈçs loss. Agreeing to investigate, he travels to Wyoming where he battles interference from local law enforcement, hostility from members of the Northern Arapaho community, and dogged assassins determined to throw Cork off the trailâÈ'permanently. At the center of all the danger and deception lies the possibility that Jo is not really dead and that, somewhere along the labyrinthine path of his search, Cork will find her alive and waiting for him. With deft plotting and writing that satisfies as much as it thrills, HeavenâÈçs Keep gives readers an adventure they wonâÈçt forget.
