An old man with a secret, a bizarre note, and a blood feud from the past create this powerful suspense with a socko climax.

It may be one of the worst winters in recent memory in Paradise, Michigan... chance encounter witha mysterious old man... bizarre note. Fun in cold 'up north' Michigan.

I love the Alex McKnight series and this is one of the very best. Suspense all the way through and a mystery that isn't solved until the last chapter. Highly recommended!

Another terrific entry in the Alex McKnight series. Filled with plenty of twists and turns to keep you turning the pages far into the night. Love the way in which Hamilton very successfully uses the setting and the weather. You can feel the snow flying in your face and the cold settling in your bones. Very highly recommend.

I thought this was fairly good, not great but just good

It kept my interest until the very last few chapters then it just seemed to be drawn out too long and I could skip and skim the last several pages, I didn't find it suspenseful or a thriller, instead I found it kind of dull and slow and then at the end when you found out what it was all about? disappointing

It may be one of the worst winters in recent memory in Paradise, Michigan, but Alex McKnight is looking forward to spending some quality time with his new girlfriend, Natalie Reynaud, an officer from the Ontario Provincial Police. A chance encounter with a mysterious old man, Simon Grant, turns chilling when he seems to know a lot about Natalie and her family.
When Natalie & Alex return to their room later that evening, they discover the same hat the old man was wearing lying outside their room filled with ice and snow and containing a cryptic note: "I know who you are!" A day later, Simon Grant is found frozen to death in a snowdrift.
Natalie & Alex are stunned. The mystery is just too much of a conicidence for Alex to ignore. His trail leads him to a blood feud buried decades ago in Natalie's family's past--an event that can still drive men to kill each other...

This is a very good book. It starts out a little slow but once it gets into it the action really starts!

Superfast paced book, lots of action

What the author(s) do with this series: Steve Hamilton started off slow but gets better and betterThis is part of the series called the Alex McKnight Novels. This paragraph applies to all books in this series. Alex is a former pro baseball player and a former cop. Both of those careers ended before they barely got started. McKnight becomes a very reluctant private investigator and brings a level of expertise not seen in most books.

The author always gives us a tour of Michigan as he does his investigation and invariably it's cold. His description of the weather is almost visceral.

Do you need to read this series in order: YES or you miss out on too much of the back stories.

Triggers: there is an ample supply of violence â Our erstwhile private detective often ends up in the hospital. Many of the crimes investigated are homicides caused by guns, fires, beatings and so on.

edgar Award-winner Steve Hamilton introduced one of the most compelling characters in modern fiction with Alex McKnight. Now Alex finds himself in the middle of a very strange mystery with much greater consequences than he ever anticipated... AN OLD MAN WITH A SECRET...It may be one of the worst winters in recent memory in Paradise, Michigan, but Alex McKnight is looking forward to spending some quality time with his new girlfriend, Natalie Reynaud, an officer from the Ontario Provincial Police.

A BIZARRE NOTE...When Natalie and Alex return to their room later that evening, they discover the same hat the old man was wearing lying outside their room filled with ice and snow and containing a cryptic note: I know who you are! A day later, Simon Grant is found frozen to death in a snowdrift. A BLOOD FEUD FROM THE PAST Natalie and Alex are stunned. The mystery is just too much of a coincidence for Alex to ignore. His trail leads him to a blood feud buried decades ago in Natalie's family's past-an event that can still drive men to kill each other.
