Copper River

b Copper River by William Kent Krueger:  . . . which leads us to this book, which starts just a short while after the previous one left off.  For the first time, Cork's story takes place mostly outside of Tamarack County in Michigan's UP, where the author experiments with point of view (positively) and also with the situation of the protagonist being mostly immobilized for the duration. 

Some folks didn't like this one because the main characters were a couple of teenagers, and Cork couldn't do a whole lot of, you know, action since he couldn't actually stand up for the first half, but I still found it interesting, mysterious, and full of unexpected twists and turns.  It does end the saga started in the last book sadly and conclusively.
