Alex McKnight isn't a man with many friends, but the few he has know they're never alone in a fix. So when Vinnie LeBlanc asks for his help in taking a trip deep into Canada in search of his missing brother, the Ojibwa Indian knows he can count on Alex. Tom LeBlanc had taken a job as hunting guide for a rough crew of Detroit "businessmen." The group was due back days ago, yet there's been no sign of them, and there's mounting evidence of something odd about their disappearing act. The trackless forests of northern Ontario keep many secrets, but none more shocking than the one that Alex is about to uncover. And the more closely Alex looks for answers, the more the questions become: where are the hunters...and who is the prey?« less
I love this series, particularly the character of Alex McKnight and the setting in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan setting. However, I was bored by the story line on this one and I couldn't generate enough interest to finish it.
I just finished this book. Loved it, as I have all his other books. It is going on my "keepers" shelf. Thank you for being there, paperbackswap, makes finding the books I look for SO easy. God bless you all and have a healthy, happy New Year.
What can I say? I'm in love with Alex McKnight. All three books that I've read by Steve Hamilton have been terrific. My husband groans when another arrives in the mail as he knows dinner will be soup or sandwiches and the bed is likely unmade. I cannot put them down; have three more on order. Said enough? Just give one a try but better be warmly dressed as those Michigan winters will chill you right through the book. Fabulous!
