Receiving evidence that a plane crash that killed his wife may not have been an actual event and that she may still be alive, Cork O'Connor travels to Wyoming to investigate allegations about the pilot's actual identity and is confronted by a series of deadly interferences. By the award-winning author of Red Knife.

Blackwell North Amer
When a charter plane carrying Cork O'Connor's 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 Heaven's Keep, author William Kent Krueger puts his intrepid hero through the most harrowing mission of his life.
Months after the tragedy, two women show up on Cork's doorstep with evidence that the pilot of Jo's plane was not the man he claimed to be. It may not be definitive proof, but it's a ray of light in the darkness surrounding Cork's loss. Agreeing to investigate, he travels to Wyoming, where he battles the interference of local law enforcement who may be on the take, the open hostility of the Northern Arapaho, who have much to lose if the truth is known, and the continuing attempts on his life by assassins who shadow his every move.
At the center of all the danger and deception lies the possibility that Jo's disappearance was not the end of her, that somewhere along the labyrinthine path of his search, maybe even in the broad shadow of Heaven's Keep itself, Cork will find her alive and waiting for him.

When a charter plane carrying Cork O’Connor’s 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?

After many days filled with grief, two women show up at Cork’s doorstep with evidence that the pilot of Jo’s plane was not the man he claimed to be.

Agreeing to investigate, he travels to Wyoming where he battles the interference of forces determined to throw Cork off the trail—permanently.

You can nearly skip the first half of this book because you know that Cork O'Connor is not going to quit until he finds his wife, dead or alive. So the first half is simply a preamble until Cork comes back to this territory. Otherwise, a typical Cork O'Connor story.

I really enjoyed this book.
I have always b een a great CJ Box fan, but now Kent-Krueger has taken his place.

This book has lots of exciting twists in the story, especially at the end.
If you like the outward bound mystery and adventure, this book you should read

Great Book!!!!

The 8th novel of the Cork O'Connor series. In this story Cork's wife disappears when a small charter plane crashes in a mountainous area. Much of the book is taken up with Cork and his son searching for her.

Too long. Needs a good edit. Stretches believability and full of stereotyping. Finished it but felt irritated throughout.
