When mayhem descends on a tiny logging town, former sheriff Cork O'Connor is called upon to investigate a murder in this "wonderful page-turner" (The Denver Post) that "prolongs suspense to the very end" (Publishers Weekly) by Edgar Award-winning author William Kent Krueger.

Not far from Aurora, Minnesota (population 3,752), lies an ancient expanse of great white pines, sacred to the Anishinaabe tribe.
