In NORTHWEST ANGLE, William Kent Kruegerâ€™s 11th book in the award winning Cork Oâ€™Connor series, Cork and his family vacation in September on a houseboat in Canada, near the Northwest Angle area of Minnesota. Cork had hoped that his family, including his three children, Jenny, Annie and Steve and his sister-in-law Rose and her husband Mel, could finally get some time to relax and enjoy each other. They had all suffered the loss of Corkâ€™s wife two yearâ€™s prior and they had not yet found any time to spend together especially since his kids had become older and living on their own.
Unfortunately for Cork and his family, the vacation becomes anything but enjoyable when soon after arrival, Cork and his older daughter Jenny become trapped in a major quick forming and very dangerous derecho storm that shipwrecks them on one of the many islands in the area.
