Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ex-cop and sometime P.I. Alex McKnight endures the bitter winter of Michigan's Upper Peninsula in his log cabin with warm fires and cold Molsons. When Dorothy Parrish, a young Ojibwa woman, asks him for shelter from her violent boyfriend, McKnight agrees. But after secreting her in one of his cabins, he finds her gone the next morning. McKnight suspects vicious, hockey-playing Lonnie Bruckman of abducting the woman. But his search for her brings on more suspects, bruising encounters, and a thickening web of crime, all obscured by the relentless whiplash of brutal snowstorms. From the secret world of the Ojibwa reservation to the Canadian border and deep into the silent woods, someone is out to kill — and McKnight is driving right into the line of fire...

Review:

"Hamilton continues to show promise. His protagonist is likable as well as durable, his raffish cast sharply observed and entertaining. Moreover, he knows how to pace a story, something of a lost art in recent crime fiction." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Hamilton understands the border mentality, and his tensile prose — with its shifting images of heat and cold, light and dark — reflects the dramatic, often violent contradictions of people who live on the edge of the world." Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"[S]tart to finish, an excellent mystery....This is the kind of book you climb inside and, when you're forced to leave, you wish you could stay a little longer." David Pitt, Booklist

Review:

"The isolated, wintry location jives well with Hamilton's pristine prose, independent protagonist, and ingenious plot. An inviting sequel to his Edgar Award-winning first novel, A Cold Day in Paradise." Library Journal
