When first published, A Cold Day in Paradise won both the Edgar and Shamus awards for Best First Novel, launching Steve Hamilton into the top ranks of today's crime writers. Now, see for yourself why this extraordinary novel has galvanized the literary and mystery community as no other book before it....
Other than the bullet lodged near his heart, former Detroit cop Alex McKnight thought he had put the nightmare of his partner's death and his own near-fatal injury behind him. After all, the man convicted of the crimes has been locked away for years. But in the small town of Paradise, Michigan, where McKnight has traded his badge for a cabin in the woods, a murderer with the same unmistakable trademarks appears to be back. McKnight can't understand who else would know the intimate details of the old murders. And it seems like it'll be a frozen day in Hell before McKnight can unravel truth from deception in a town that's anything but Paradise.

Never heard of this writer, but this was a solid book that would make a good movie. A well disguised ending that was well played. Highly recommended.
New favorite author
I can honestly say that I haven't picked up a book in about 5 years. I got an iPhone and started poking around, found the cover of this book and thought I'd try it out. It was only a few bucks. I have never been so addicted to a book. I couldn't put it down. It was great. Thrilling, interesting, engrossing, the kind of book that makes your heart race and the wheels in your head turn. The best book I think I've ever read. I have a new favorite author.
