ALEX MCKNIGHT IS BACK in the long-awaited return of one of crime fiction's most critically acclaimed series.
On a frozen January night, a young man loops one end of a long rope over the branch of a tree. The other end he ties around his neck. A snowmobiler will find him thirty-six hours later, his lifeless eyes staring out at the endless cold water of Lake Superior. It happens in a lonely corner of the Upper Peninsula, in a place they call Misery Bay.
Alex McKnight does not know this young man, and he won’t even hear about the suicide until another cold night, two months later and 250 miles away, when the door to the Glasgow Inn opens and the last person Alex would ever expect to see comes walking in to ask for his help.
What seems like a simple quest to find a few answers will turn into a nightmare of sudden violence and bloody revenge, and a race against time to catch a ruthless killer. McKnight knows all about evil, of course, having faced down a madman who killed his partner and left a bullet next to his heart. Mobsters, drug dealers, hit men—he’s seen them all, and they’ve taken away almost everything he’s ever loved. But none of them could have ever prepared him for the darkness he’s about to face.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire McKnight series by Steve Hamilton. This may actually be my favorite. It introduces some intriguing characters and has an interesting storyline. I highly recommend it.
Steve Hamilton did it again! As a huge fan of this genre, Robert Parker my favorite, Mr. Hamilton now carries Parker's torch with sneaky good wit and great storytelling. If anyone hasn't read the McKnight series you're the lucky one. Start from the first installment. You won't be sorry.
