Late one night, a plane lands on a deserted airstrip. Five dead bodies are found there the next morning. And now Vinnie LeBlanc is missing. Vinnie is an Ojibwa tribal member, a blackjack dealer at the Bay Mills Casino, and he just might be Alex McKnight's best friend. He's come through for Alex more than once in the past, and he never ever misses a day of work. So Alex can't help but be worried.

There's a deadly crime war creeping into Michigan's Upper Peninsula, leaving bodies in its wake, and Alex wouldn't think for a minute that his friend could be involved. But when an unexpected and unwelcome stranger arrives in town, Alex will soon find out that the stakes are higher than he ever could have imagined.

Two-time Edgar Award winner and New York Times bestselling author Steve Hamilton returns with this outstanding new novel - perhaps his boldest book yet.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KarenC | 1/25/2014

    " As much as Misery Bay was Chief Maven's book, this one was Vinnie LeBlanc's. We learned more about Vinnie's personal life. Alex's loyalty to Vinnie is tested and becomes stronger. Good character development; felt sympathetic to the characters and a connection with them. Had suspense and atmosphere. Totally engrossing - read in one day! Glad to have Alex back & looking forward to the next installment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 1/12/2014

    " Kind of a disappointing follow-up to the exceptional Misery Bay but still worth reading if you're an Alex McKnight fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John McKenna | 1/12/2014

    " Its a thrill ride on bald tires!!Written by the hand of a master, its as smooth, mellow and warm as fifteen year-old malt scotch. A series I was unaware of but am trying to correct. They're too good to miss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen Thielen | 1/3/2014

    " This series in the upper peninsula of Michigan has a fast moving plot. Proving strong ties between family, friends, and especially the "family" on the reservation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 12/28/2013

    " Steve Hamilton just gets better with every book. Lots of Michigan references and lore, most of which is true. Can't wait for another edition of the life of Alex McKnight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jakub Hakalo | 11/26/2013

    " Solid story, great characters. Real page-turner. Waiting for another Alex Mcknight story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Constance | 11/7/2013

    " One of the best Alex McKnight mysteries! My favorite characters of Vinnie LeBlanc and in this book, his father, Lou. go to the heart of the Ojibwe. The section about Beaver Island was so good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 11/5/2013

    " Another great story in the series. I am loving these characters. "

    " Another thriller from the Upper Peninsula. A fast read; very dark. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela | 7/10/2013

    " Hamilton keeps getting better. All of the McKnight series are good, but this may be his best yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Levine | 6/8/2013

    " Unusual for this series.No snow.Devolps into a typical ruthless drug story but with an inconclusive realistic(?) ending leaving room for continuation.No real excitement nor any solid character developement but still an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 3/8/2013

    " This is the tenth book in the Alex McKnight series. He lives in Paradise Michigan and the books are all set in the UP and upper Michigan. They are quick reads and good mysteries. First book is "A Cold Day in Paradise" if you want something fun to read. "

    " It was an okay book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derek Balaam | 2/1/2013

    " I have been on a roll with good books lately and this one has not let me down. Good story, well written and you can imagine you are sitting at the bar with Alex. I could picture the story as I was reading it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 12/13/2012

    " a wise person once said about this story, "all he does is jump in his car and drive around." amen. disappointing. also, need a leon series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Toth | 11/18/2012

    " I had trouble getting through this book although I wouldn't say it was a bad book. I found I could only read a bit at a time then got bored or needed a break. This is a first for this author so maybe one of his other books will be more interesting and exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annie Michelle | 10/17/2012

    " as usual, a most excellent read! I really liked Lou.......and the very last line "Vinnie doesn't live on their reservation any more, he lives on mine" now, to wait for the next book...:( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail Stewart rumsey | 10/9/2012

    " It's been a long time since I read an Alex McKnight book - was not disappointed! This is book #9 - don't think I read #8 yet. Buck is killed off but Vinny, Jackie and Alex remain. "
