Overview
"Some nights, Corcoran O Connor dreams his father s death.
"William Kent Krueger s gripping tale of suspense begins with a recurring nightmare, a gun, and a wound in the earth so deep and horrific that it has a name: Vermilion Drift.
When the Department of Energy puts an underground iron mine on its short list of potential sites for storage of nuclear waste, a barrage of protest erupts in Tamarack County, Minnesota, and Cork is hired as a security consultant.
Deep in the mine during his first day on the job, Cork stumbles across a secret room that contains the remains of six murder victims. Five appear to be nearly half a century old connected to what the media once dubbed "The Vanishings," a series of unsolved disappearances in the summer of 1964, when Cork s father was sheriff in Tamarack County. But the sixth has been dead less than a week. What s worse, two of the bodies including the most recent victim were killed using Cork s own gun, one handed down to him from his father.
As Cork searches for answers, he must dig into his own past and that of his father, a well-respected man who harbored a ghastly truth. Time is running out, however. New threats surface, and unless Cork can unravel the tangled thread of clues quickly, more death is sure to come.
"Vermilion Drift "is a powerful novel, filled with all the mystery and suspense for which Krueger has won so many awards. A poignant portrayal of the complexities of family life, it s also a sobering reminder that even those closest to our hearts can house the darkest and deadliest of secrets."
