Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edgar Award-winner Steve Hamilton introduced one of the most compelling characters in modern fiction with Alex McKnight. Now Alex finds himself in the middle of a very strange mystery with much greater consequences than he ever anticipated...

AN OLD MAN WITH A SECRET...

It may be one of the worst winters in recent memory in Paradise, Michigan, but Alex McKnight is looking forward to spending some quality time with his new girlfriend, Natalie Reynaud, an officer from the Ontario Provincial Police. But a chance encounter with a mysterious old man, Simon Grant, turns chilling when he seems to know a lot about Natalie and her family.

A BIZARRE NOTE...

When Natalie and Alex return to their room later that evening, they discover the same hat the old man was wearing lying outside their room filled with ice and snow and containing a cryptic note: I know who you are! A day later, Simon Grant is found frozen to death in a snowdrift.

A BLOOD FEUD FROM THE PAST

Natalie and Alex are stunned. The mystery is just too much of a coincidence for Alex to ignore. His trail leads him to a blood feud buried decades ago in Natalie's family's past-an event that can still drive men to kill each other...
