Peace at the Iron Lake Reservation is shattered when a plane carrying a United States senator crashes and all aboard are killed. First responders from the reservation are turned back by the FBI. Also on hand are military-looking individuals who are heavily armed. The NTSB says pilot error is to blame but too many things are not adding up for Cork O’Connor and he is determined to find out what happened. He runs into Bo Thorson, former Secret Service and friend of Cork, and does not get an answer when Cork asks who he is working for. Lots of suspense.

I really appreciate the depth of the characters. You grow to hate the bad guys and care about the good guys! Nice work Kent!

Another excellent O'Connor family story. We have one storyline where Stephen is maturing and questioning both his visions and what his place is in his family and his community. I hate reviews that give the whole story, in a nutshell, removing all the fun of reading the book. Stephen has one last vision in the book and not only did it bring tears to my eyes but it gave me hope that this is not the last we will see of the O'Connor family.

Stephen O‘Connor, Cork O’Connor’s young son, has always had visions presaging tragedies. This novel is based on one in which he sees an eagle shot from the sky and a menace he can’t identify at his back. And then a plane carrying a U.S. Senator and her family crashes on Desolation Mountain. Cork and Stephen subsequently join others attempting to find survivors and clues. Soon, some of the first responders go missing, and father and son begin to investigate. Then Cork inadvertently meets Bo Thorson, a character from a long ago novel, then a secret service agent, now a private investigator. They join forces, but soon Cork begins to doubt Bo’s role. The area is overrun with representatives of various federal agencies and is cordoned off. The plot centers on the meaning of the vision and solution of the cause of the crash. This is the 18th novel in the series, and provides, for the first time, a deeper look into Cork and Stephen’s relationship. As is a constant in the series, it is well-written, and the descriptions of the North Country graphic and excellent. Highly recommended.
