Overview

The Devil's Bed by William Kent Krueger

From the creator of the critically acclaimed, award-winning Cork O'Connor mystery series comes a haunting, atmospheric, conspiracy thriller.

When President Clay Dixon's father-in-law—a former vice president—is injured in a farming accident, First Lady Kate Dixon returns to Minnesota to be at his side. Assigned to protect her, Secret Service agent Bo Thorsen soon falls under Kate's spell. He also suspects the accident is part of a trap set for Kate by David Moses, an escaped mental patient who once loved her. What Bo and Moses don't realize is that they're caught in a web of deadly intrigue spun by a seemingly insignificant bureaucratic department within the federal government. Racing to find answers before an assassin's bullet can kill Kate, Bo soon learns that when you lie down with the devil, there's hell to pay.

There comes a moment that clearly divides the past from the future. Mr. Krueger gives amply time to clarify each scene through short, neat narrations and dialogue. He presents each situation that leads up to a climax. The Federal Governments bureaucracy becomes the monster. The most powerful device in the world is information. However, someone, who knows the right thing, can leverage that information to move the world.  He shows ideals and reality of the global world as being a world apart. He offers magnificent characters, varied seasons and different cities to tell his story. He brings to light some powerful issues through this intriguing and insightful read.

A little different than his Cork O'Connor series. However, this was filled with suspense. Not for the faint of heart. But definetely a very good read.

President Daniel Clay Dixon is running for reelection but his opponent leads in all the polls even those sanctioned by the incumbent. Daniel¿s wife Kate feels estranged from him because he¿s being influenced more and more by his father Senator William Dixon and the men associated with him. When Kate¿s father, the former vice-president is hurt in what looks like an accident on his farm, she rushes to his bedside leaving the president in Washington. Secret Service agent Bo Thorsen is in charge of protecting the First Lady when she¿s in Minnesota and his instincts tell him her life is in danger as is that of her father. He finds proof that the ex-vice-president was deliberately injured and the person who is after the duo has a long time grudge against them. Bo is able to foil the first assassination attempt but the next effort has tentacles that reach into the highest levels of government making it nearly impossible to stop it in time. THE DEVIL¿S BED is an exciting thriller that starts off at light speed and never slows down. The president, his wife and the cabal members are three-dimensional characters who seem real with plausible actions on each of their parts. The hero is the kind of man one wants in office because he is honorable, patriotic and most importantly, trustworthy. William Kent Krueger, the author of the Cork O¿Connor mystery series, has written his best work yet. Harriet Klausner

I've read all his oconnor series! This was a nice departure. Exciting, sometimes a little spooky(no pun intended), brilliant anaylisis of politics, and excellent character developement. Bravo, i'll read more. Thank you, Mr Kreuger!!

This is quite a departure from the Cork O'Connor series and it certainly held my attention. I heartily recommend this to anyone looking for a suspenseful story filled with numerous exciting twists and turns. J M Lydon .

As a fan of stories set in the north, primarily Minnesota, I feel this n ovel is not up to par as far as William Kent Kreuger's other works.
After a few pages I was tempted to set the book aside, but continued to read.
If one can overlook the gratuitous violence and remove the pictures in your mind by language, the story is inticing.
Not worth the money or the time in general.
