When a fire is done, what’s left is only half-destroyed. It is charred and brittle. It is obscene. There is nothing so ugly in all the world as what a fire leaves behind, covered in ashes and smoke and a smell you’ll think about every day for the rest of your life. Reluctant investigator Alex McKnight finds himself drawn by friendship into a long drive north. The brother of Alex’s longtime Ojibwa friend Vinnie LeBlanc works as a hunting guide, serving the rich clients from downstate. It seems that Vinnie’s brother and his most recent group of hunters have vanished in northern Ontario, and Vinnie is scared enough to ask Alex to help him find them. Their arrival sets in motion a heart-pounding string of events that leaves Alex and his friend miles from civilization, stranded in the heart of the Canadian wilderness with no food, no weapons -and no way out. And there’s someone out there who definitely does not want them to make it back alive. At once elegant and enormously suspenseful, Steve Hamilton’s Blood Is the Sky heralds his arrival as one of the premier crime writers working today. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Steve Hamilton writes the kind of stories that [one] can’t resist.”

    New York Time Book Review

  • “The best mysteries are about the past coming up out of the ground and grabbing the present by the throat. Steve Hamilton knows this. Blood is the Sky fills that bill and then some. This is his best yet.”

    Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Heartily delivers on suspense, atmosphere, and riveting action.”

    Denver Post

  • “Hamilton won an Edgar and an Anthony in 1998 for A Cold Day in Paradise. This smart, brisk, twisty tale is even better.”

    Kirkus Reviews  (starred review)

  • “A fine writer, [Hamilton] excels at describing the lonely locale as well as depicting such memorable characters.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Overflows with an element lacking from too many mysteries: a genuine sense of mystery…Blood boldly crosses genre boundaries as it turns into a thrilling outdoor adventure, then a heartfelt small town tragedy. All along, Hamilton’s prose…remains an unselfconsciously terse pleasure.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Hamilton never misses a beat.”

    Rocky Mountain News

  • “A reader’s delight: a fast-paced, breathtaking adventure for which a night’s sleep gladly will be sacrificed. Blood is the Sky is a stunner.”

    Romantic Times

  • Blood is The Sky is brilliant. Some books you can’t put down because the story is so compelling. Some books you can’t put down because the prose is so spellbinding. And then, every once in a while, you read a book that combines both. Steve Hamilton has written the best private eye novel—heck, maybe the best novel—I’ve read this year.”

    Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Steve Hamilton writes tough, passionate novels with a strong emphasis on heart and humanity. His latest flat-out smokes. This is crime writing at its very best.”

    George Pelecanos, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Easily Steve Hamilton’s best novel so far—therefore an automatic book of the year. Everything is here-his trademark sense of place, vivid, resonant characters, and a plot that will break your heart.”

    Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • Blood is the Sky takes us into the dark and brooding heart of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It’s got everything-tension, action, surprises. Alex McKnight is a believable hero who can also tell a good story.”

    T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author

  • Winner of the 2004 Gumshoe Award for Best Mystery
  • A 2004 Anthony Award Finalist for Best Novel
