They brave a violent snowstorm to spend the night together in a historic hotel in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. There, they meet a mysterious old man who seems to know a lot about Natalie - and about her family. But they won't be getting any answers from him - he'll be found frozen to death in a snowbank the very next morning. From this single incident, an old blood feud will be reignited, one going back decades to an event buried in her family's past - an event that even now can still drive men to kill each other.
As much as Natalie doesn't want Alex to become entangled in this web of lies and hatred, there's no way he can let her face this danger alone. This is a man who has gotten beaten up, shot at, and even dragged behind a snowmobile, all because he's a sucker for a friend in need.
How much further will he go for love?
Catch all of our Alex McKnight titles.

The books I have listened to by Steve Hamilton have all kept me entertained and wanting to hear more. Not all authors translate so well to audio and no doubt the narrator seals the deal with his skillful vocal talent.
until I read Steve Hamilton! really enjoy the regional backdrop for his plot twists and action stories. the characters make me want to spend time with them.
I like the McKnight series because the plots are fairly interesting and the characters are well developed.
The narration was atrocious! His feigned upper peninsula accent was terrible, but far worse was the insulting way he represented the Indians in the story! He must have listened the the Lone Ranger and Tonto one too many times, because he represented the Indians as simpletons - just terrible!
I am not sure who takes the worst beatings - Alex, the stories main character, or the listener because of the narration. This book devolves into lots of cursing and a weird love interest who is so vile that no chemistry between the reader and the woman ever develops. The new narrator, who should have been booted after the "Blood is the Sky" intro is as bad as ever destroying the voice of Leon, Alex's former, or present partner transforming him from a very likeable character, and one in which Steve Hamilton has been able to develop a great deal of good chemistry between Alex and audience to just a strange extra that feeds Alex information and guns, which Alex always looses just before being beaten horribly. I am very sad at what became of a great series.
