Alex McKnight is in love. Even though he met Natalie Reynaud, an officer from the Ontario Provincial Police, under difficult circumstances, they share a common bond of solitude, as well as the same nightmare - they're both cops who buried their partners. It's Alex's first real relationship in years, which in some ways is terrifying. But Natalie has her own fears to deal with - and her own secrets.

They brave a violent snowstorm to spend the night together in a historic hotel in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. There, they meet a mysterious old man who seems to know a lot about Natalie - and about her family. But they won't be getting any answers from him - he'll be found frozen to death in a snowbank the very next morning. From this single incident, an old blood feud will be reignited, one going back decades to an event buried in her family's past - an event that even now can still drive men to kill each other.

As much as Natalie doesn't want Alex to become entangled in this web of lies and hatred, there's no way he can let her face this danger alone. This is a man who has gotten beaten up, shot at, and even dragged behind a snowmobile, all because he's a sucker for a friend in need.

How much further will he go for love? Download and start listening now!

    " new author given to me by Jeannie, like his stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Hoffman Brauman | 2/6/2014

    " Enjoyable read. Set in the UP. This is the 6th in the series -- and there is a tie in between a death in the novel and a murder from the past. Hamilton did a good job of running both story lines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen Thielen | 2/4/2014

    " This was the least satisfying story of this series. By the conclusion it was unclear who was lying nor did I care.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberlie | 2/4/2014

    " I picked this book up as a discount and didn't realize it was part of a series until a few chapters in. It was enjoyable, but not so great that I want to run out and buy all the rest of the series. If I came across another Alex McKnight book, I'd get it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn (in SC) C234D | 1/28/2014

    " Read this in 2007. Don't really remember it well now, just noted that it was "pretty good"., and he seems to be a victim in much of this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K D | 1/23/2014

    " First book I read by this author. Ive moved on to his other novels -- I really recommend him to mystery suspense lovers "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/21/2014

    " Thrilling mystery set in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan which traces three families back over three generations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebekkila | 1/21/2014

    " I was hoping to like the book, it took place in Sault Ste. Marie in area that I vacationed in as a child. I found the book to be slow moving, but I would be willing to give this author another chance "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 1/6/2014

    " Didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the previous installments. But I still like the series and I'll keep reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 12/26/2013

    " Wow. Steve Hamilton continues to amaze me that he could evolve what seemed like an old fashioned hard boiled cop into a very complex human. I look forward to more Alex McKnight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 12/16/2013

    " Very Good; Continuing character: Alex McNight; as they start to build a relationship, McKnight and Canadian police office Natalie Reynaud are haunted by people and occurrences in Reynaud's family history "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melodie | 12/8/2013

    " The sense of place is so strong in this book that I was freezing while reading it even though it was summer time! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise | 12/4/2013

    " local author, series set in UP MI, Dublin and Ind. bk gps "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia Kurdziel | 11/29/2013

    " This was the last in the series that I read. It was probably the least satisfying of them. I enjoy the Alex McKnight series but this one was the weakest of the bunch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kip | 11/25/2013

    " Hamilton's McKnight series always satisfies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen | 11/2/2013

    " Was okay. Not sure I'd read this author again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig | 9/4/2013

    " Hamilton apparently belongs to the Ross MacDonald school-- a long buried deep dark family secret/feud erupts into open internecine warfare as soon as our hero, in this case McKnight, gets involved. And happily, like Macdonald, Hamilton is a good writer who creates believable well-drawn characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janie | 8/21/2013

    " My first book by Hamilton. It kept me interested but ended rather bluntly and the story line was weak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 7/4/2013

    " The Alex McKnight series is candy for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 4/12/2013

    " A perfect read for a hot summer day - lots of snow and ice in this one! I was distracted by all the driving around - more than a tad unrealistic, in my book - and the "confession" was a bit too pat for my taste as well. But I do like the characters and will definitely be reading more in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John O'Connell | 1/30/2013

    " Both main characters were annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arlene | 8/23/2012

    " Very good. I really like this author as he writes about the eastern UP. This story was a continuation (sort of) of the previous book I read by him (Blood is the Sky) but I didn't know that. You don't have to read them in order as he explains the characters and situations well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 6/5/2012

    " Another good one from Hamilton. So far I have enjoyed them all. Even though it is the same haracter Alex, the stories never seem the same as they sometimes do with other series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzette | 4/27/2012

    " Couldn't wait to read. One more book to go to this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen | 10/31/2011

    " Well, I liked the location and the plot moved, but I didn't feel as involved in the narrative as I would have liked. Likable protaganist, but needed some more fleshing out for a really good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 10/16/2011

    " I agree with the reviewer who stated that the characters in the Alex Mcknight books are so easy to get to know. The are so down to Earth and so likeable and/or humorous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 3/31/2011

    " Didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the previous installments. But I still like the series and I'll keep reading. "

    " Great fun to read a book set in Soo Michigan & the Soo Canada area! "
