I decided to get current on William Kent Krueger’s Cork O’Connor series prior to the new one coming in August, so I read Manitou Canyon. As always with Krueger, I liked it a lot, and am eager for the next book.
I also read Silver Chief, Dog of the North by Jack O’Brien (illustrated by Kurt Wiese). A couple of years ago I picked up several O’Brien dog books on ABE, and have been reading one now and then as the mood strikes. Silver Chief is the son of a husky and a wolf, born in the wild. He is extremely mistrustful of humans, but is captured, tamed with kindness and love by Jim Thorne of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
On assignment to bring in a killer, Silver Chief saves his master’s life and brings the assignment to a successful conclusion. I enjoyed this one quite a bit, and though there are some grim moments all turns out well in the end.
Barbara is finished All the President’s Men and has started The Thirst by Jo Nesbo, a Harry Hole novel.
So how about you?
