WOW ! Got this cause the reviews were so good. They did not lie ! A really great first novel. If you like the genre this is the advent of a new talent right up there with Parker and Patterson. Just put his others on my list and cannot wait to reaqd them.

Hamilton won both the Edgar and Shamus awards for best first novel, and it's easy to see why. This is a classic private eye novel set in an unlikely location. Alex McKnight is part Lucas Davenport, part Matthew Scudder. The story flows smoothly, all the action, dialogue, descriptions, everything that needs to be there is there. It's 271 pages of pure private eye mystery, nothing extra to fluff up the book to 400 pages. Perfect as it stands. I'm going to read more from Hamilton. Hopefully it's this good.
