On a frozen January night, a young man loops one end of a long rope over the branch of a tree. The other end he ties around his neck. A snowmobiler will find him 36 hours later, his lifeless eyes staring out at the endless coldwater of Lake Superior. It happens in a lonely corner of the Upper Peninsula, in a place they call Misery Bay, a good 250 miles west of Paradise.

Alex McKnight does not know this young man, and he won't even hear about the suicide until two months later, when the door to the Glasgow Inn opens and the last person Alex would ever expect comes walking inside to ask for his help.

What seems like a simple quest to find a few answers will turn into a nightmare of sudden violence and bloody revenge, and a race against time to catch a ruthless and methodical killer. Alex McKnight knows all about evil, of course, having faced down a madman who killed his partner and left a bullet next to his heart. Mobsters, drug dealers, hitmen - he's seen them all and they've taken away almost everything he's ever loved. But none of that could ever prepare him for the darkness he's about to enter....

    " The most interesting thing about this book is that it was set in Michigan - that says it all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 2/14/2014

    " Good thriller series featuring Alex McKnight, takes place in northern Michigan peninsula. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/7/2014

    " Interesting because of the location. A fairly decent read for a light mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 1/26/2014

    " This was the first Steve Hamilton mystery I have read and, even though I am not a typical mystery reader, this was a book I really enjoyed. The mystery was involved enough to be interesting without being so detailed that I felt lost. And, being set in (primarilly) the Upper Pennisula made the story all the more relevant and interesting to me. I'll go back and read his earlier novels in the series, just because I want to understand the background of his personal story better. "

    " Just finished. Not disappointed another good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 1/23/2014

    " Great mystery story. Why are all these young people committing suicide without leaving a note, without having a cause? I like Michigan authors and even though Steve Hamilton has left our state to live in, he continues to write well about corners we all know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/19/2014

    " I loved returning the to world of Alex McKnight. I particularly enjoyed seeing how is relationship with the Chief changed in this book. Also, considering that I have been driving back and forth on the I-75 and over the Mackinac Bridge several times this summer, his descriptions of the area resonated more than usual. It was his descriptions of the Soo and the Upper Peninsula that originally hooked me into the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb Mjaatvedt | 10/7/2013

    " I love Hamilton's Alex McKnight series and this one might be the best of the bunch. He has a fantastic knack for describing the desolation of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and his characters are somehow sparse, yet richly drawn. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey Getzin | 1/11/2013

    " Steve Hamilton hits another one out of the park. His taut prose seems effortless, and it's easy to immerse yourself in it and lose an hour ... or a day! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Gocha | 12/22/2012

    " One of his best books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Glow | 10/6/2012

    " Not the best of the series. Not bad but not up to Hamilton's usual standards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Billie | 9/11/2012

    " I liked some of his other books better. Although it was nice to see a more human side to Chief Maven. "
