This is a great debut mystery.  Gritty and atmospheric.  I felt the cold of the winter scenes, and the roar of the snowmobiles was a familiar sound of winter.  The desolation of the snowstorm, the isolation that comes with it.  I loved the parts about the Indigenous people and their community.  I want to read more!

From the publisher:
Part Irish, part Anishinaabe Indian, Corcoran "Cork" O'Connor is the former sheriff of Aurora, Minnesota. Embittered by his "former" status, and the marital meltdown that has separated him from his children, Cork gets by on heavy doses of caffeine, nicotine, and guilt. Once a cop on Chicago's South Side, there's not much that can shock him. But when the town's judge is brutally murdered, and a young Eagle Scout is reported missing, Cork takes on a mind-jolting case of conspiracy, corruption, and scandal.

As a lakeside blizzard buries Aurora, Cork must dig out the truth among town officials who seem dead-set on stopping his investigation in its tracks. But even Cork freezes up when faced with the harshest enemy of all: a small-town secret that hits painfully close to home.

Yay! I'm glad you read it and liked it. I've read 5 books in the series so far. I will probably use some Christmas money or gift cards to get a few more of those...and also of the Longmire series.
