The River We Remember, William Kent Krueger

Jimmy Quinn, a wealthy and powerful landowner, has been found floating in the Alabaster River, dead after being shot. Sheriff Brody Dern, a decorated war veteran, is tasked with gathering evidence and solving the case. Before the body is examined, fingers begin being pointed at Noah Bluestone, a Native American WWII veteran who has returned to town with his Japanese wife.

Brody is struggling not only with solving the case, but he is also struggling with his physical and emotional scars from the war and choices he has made in his life. Like other men who have gone to war, he has returned home a changed man. As readers follow the investigation, we meet several characters including the former sheriff, a lawyer, a journalist, and a woman and her son.

Small towns have secrets as do the people who live there. Everyone has a past, some good, some bad, some tragic and some traumatic. As the investigation unfolds, many characters will have to cope with their pasts and how the past affects their present.

Like all books by William Kent Krueger, this is a beautifully written, insightful, gripping and hard to put down story. The River We Remember provides food for thought while making observations about human nature as well as nature itself.

The River We Remember, is available in the library in book, ebook and downloadable audiobook form.
