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

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

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.

Darn you, Steve Hamilton!!

How am I supposed to get any work done around the house once I've started one of your Alex McKnight novels?? (*) They are almost impossible to put down, and Ice Run is no exception.

Who knew that there was so much mystery to mine in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan?? (Yeah, OK, Henry Kisor & Joseph Heyward did, but we'll leave them to reviews of their own works.) Even if you do occasionally foray across the border into southwestern Ontario? Yes, your characters - Alex, Jackie, Vinnie, and the like - feel almost like family; I want to drop into the Glasgow for a Molson's and a shot of Jameson's. I want to see the locks from the casino in the Sault. I want to ride snowmobiles through the woods by the cabins outside Paradise - even if it WILL p-ss off Alex!

Ice Run felt a bit more convoluted than some of your earlier works. I had to stop a little more often, think about what I'd just read, and try to figure out how it fit in with what I'd already read. BUT I suppose a little thinking isn't a bad thing, even in escapist mysteries. Still, a lesser McKnight novel is still better than a good any day.

Consider this a 4 1/2 to 4 3/4 rating, rounded up to 5. Looking forward to "A Stolen Season".

(*) I have not yet read "The Lock Artist" or any other standalone works you may have done, so I limit my comments to the Paradise series.
