During a houseboat vacation on the remote Lake of the Woods, a violent gale sweeps through unexpectedly, stranding Cork O'Connor and his daughter, Jenny, on a devastated island where the wind has ushered in a force far darker and more deadly than any storm. Amid the wreckage, Cork and Jenny discover an old trapper's cabin, where they find the body of a teenage girl. She wasn't killed by the storm, however; she'd been bound and tortured before she died. Whimpering sounds coming from outside the cabin lead them to a tangle of branches toppled by the vicious winds. Underneath the debris, they find a baby boy, hungry and dehydrated, but still very much alive. Powerful forces intent on securing the child pursue them to the isolated Northwest Angle, where it's impossible to tell who among the residents is in league with the devil.

Outstanding. Wonderful series.

Ok Cork O'Connor mystery. A good beginning, very gripping but then sort of petered out in the middle and then got better towards the end. A senseless death of one character I thought and a pretty unbelivable ending.

This was a great story about family working together to succeed. Cork O'Connor and his family defeat truly evil people with help from friends. I enjoyed all the Ojibwe lore and legend. The description of the Minnesota and Ontario wilderness is beautifully written. this is a truly special book.
