I was very disappointed when author William Kent Krueger killed off the wife of his main character in book #9 (Heaven's Keep) because they had a special relationship, not perfect by any means, but a certain yin-yang thing, whereby they filled in the holes in the other. Several books later, Cork O'Connor seems to have found a new soulmate in Henry Meloux's niece, Rainy. Here is a wonderful summary of Cork's character from Rainy: "[Uncle Henry] says you are like a dog who can't remember where he's buried his bone. You just keep digging until you find it." Elsewhere in the book, his daughter Jenny quotes her mother in describing Cork as a windbreak or her son's native Ojibwe word, Ogichidaa: "someone who [stands] between his people and bad things."

This book is about the murder of Cork's lifelong friend, Jubal Little, who is running for governor at Trickster's Point (a/k/a Tricky's Dick or Nanaboozhoo's Penis), a 150-foot stone nestled in the northwoods. The two friends have some ancient history there, as a boyhood nemesis fell to his death there following the rape of their close friend. Cork is suspected of the deed as the arrow is manmade in the Cork's precise style, and he refuses to get help because his friend does not want to be left alone to die.

Over the course of the novel, and Cork's investigation, much secret history is revealed about Cork, Jubal, and their raped friend, Winona. As always, Cork solves the mystery, revealing only as much as he feels is necessary ... in the spirit of medicine man (Mide), Henry Meloux. ( )

Trickster's Point begins with the murder of Jubal Little, a powerful politician who is about to be elected the first Native American governor of Minnesota. Unlike Cork, who has Ojibwe blood. Jubal is a Montana Blackfeet who has combined his heritage, his football career, and his marriage into a prominent family into a successful political career. So his murder brings in an FBI agent who immediately suspects Cork, especially since Jubal was shot through the heart with Cork’s own deer-hunting arrow.

The author tells this story through alternating scenes of past and present, showing how old experiences and youthful friendships have affected Cork and Jubal's relationship. Trickster's Point is an absorbing book with lots of twists and turns. Krueger is an author who isn't afraid to take chances with his characters. Cork continues to grow with each new entry in the series.

4.5 stars. Another great read in this consistently fine series. I'll admit I was a little disappointed with the author because I had figured out the murderer and the motive about mid-book. Yeah, I was completely wrong and can't believe I fell for the red herring.

I enjoyed this book because it included flashbacks of Cork's past -- his childhood and his teenage years, which have not been featured or referenced much in the series.

This was not as much of a thriller in the way the last few books have been. There is no nail-biting suspense and big climactic scene. Instead this story read more like a puzzle, slowing putting piece by piece together until the whole picture comes into view. ( )
