Lying face down on the floor with a gun to the back of his head is where Alex McKnight finds himself after a game of cards turns into a professional heist at the home of local developer Win Vargas. When the dust settles, McKnight is one of Police Chief Roy Maven’s lead suspects. Worse, Vargas’ own sense of vigilante justice has targeted the former private eye as well, and the brash millionaire may be responsible for the sudden disappearance of Alex’s best friend, Jackie. Now, with officials pointed in the wrong direction and his closest allies either missing or in jail, Alex knows he is the only one who can uncover the truth. But McKnight can’t possibly know how dark this conspiracy truly is—or how close to guilt he actually stands.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fine showcase for Hamilton’s lithesome prose. The pace is brisk, the episodes often humorous, and the tale brims with an infectious reverence for its natural setting.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Superb…Hamilton keeps the action fast and furious and manages to keep the reader off balance almost as much as his hero.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A bracing, sometimes sidesplitting alternative detective novel.”


  • “North of Nowhere has a twisty plot with genuine surprises, but it’s the understanding of the people who live in the Upper Peninsula and the love for both the harshness and beauty of the Lake Superior shoreline that make this another good entry in a terrific series.”

    Flint (MI) Journal

  • “A fast-paced book with wonderful characters…Hamilton writes great prose.”


  • “A robust entry…Alex is at his best and the support cast augments the isolated feeling of going north of nowhere that shows why Steve Hamilton is an award-winning author.”

    Internet Bookwatch

  • “Hamilton[’s]…tensile prose…reflects the dramatic, often violent contradictions of people who live on the edge of the world.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A brisk, well-plotted tale.”

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Monie Hayes | 2/18/2014

    " Doesn't mean it's really good -- but it's pretty good, and I really like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sharon | 2/18/2014

    " I'm really enjoying this author! Granted, the reader adds or detracts quite a bit from an audio book, and Dan John Miller is a top-notch reader. This book is the 4th in the series and I enjoyed listening to this one as much as the first one. On to #5 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Lukasz Pruski | 2/12/2014

    " Other readers may like it more. This competently written book has a good beginning, but it steadily goes downward from there; the plot gets contrived and bizarre. The climactic scene on Lake Superior is hilarious in an unintended way. The misadventures of a group of elderly men remind me the idiotic "Camel Club" by Baldacci. No more Alex McKnight for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Vivian | 2/8/2014

    " I love this series by Steve Hamilton. Great characters, terrific setting and he writes very well, too! However, this one didn't grab me like the previous three. I thought that the storyline was just not that interesting, but I've got the next two books in my TBR pile and can't wait to read them. "
