Publisher's Summary

Sequel to Hamilton's award-winning first novel (A Cold Day in Paradise), the story returns us to the small town of Paradise, Michigan where ex-Detroit police detective and reluctant private investigator, Alex McKnight, rents out small cabins to snowmobilers and tried to bury his demons under the snow he plows each day.

Alex is content with his low-key existence, until a young Native American woman asks for his help – ostensibly to escape an abusive lover – and then disappears without a trace from one of his cabins. Feeling responsible, Alex begins a frantic search, swatting away his self-appointed “partner” – the town’s favorite fool – until the man surprises him. It’s a search that leads to encounters with a variety of unsavory types, each with his own agenda, and to some extremely unpleasant discoveries by McKnight himself as he forcibly learns that criminal sadism knows no geographic boundaries and that the motives of both good and evil people can lead to disaster.

Hamilton's crisp, evocative style and refreshingly genuine cast of characters cements his place among today’s most talented crime fiction writers. And his uniquely atmospheric rendering of place – especially the relentlessly frigid winter of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula – will send a palpable shiver down the listener’s spine. Listeners will want to bundle up and settle in.

    "Outstanding dialog and cast of characters"

    This series is very well written, the characters are wonderful and the chemistry between individuals is beautifully developed. I really like the development of the main character and his "partner", it continues from the first novel and develops very well in this sequel. As in the first story the ending is a surprise and plausible although well concealed. There is more action in this story but it is the steady building tension that holds the readers interest. This is a well written book, it brings the reader into this community and makes you a part of the conversation more than being a spectator. A great find and highly recommended.

    "Great Book."

    I listened to this book non-stop and would listen to it again. I thought the author did a great job as did the narrator. It's well worth the time. Great book.

    Story
    "Amateurish narration made a so-so book even worse"

    I had read (book not audiobook) a previous Alex McKnight book and found it entertaining so I thought I'd try the next in the series on audiobook. What a mistake. I cannot decide if the writing was poor or the narration made it sound poor but this audiobook is a dud. The narration was just horrible. It sounded like a grade schooler reading out loud to a class and trying to 'act' as he read. It made the character's incessant overthinking that much more painful and poor Leon sounded like the village idiot.

    Never again will I listen to a book with this narrator.

    "Excellent!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Very good writing & always kept my interest.


    Have you listened to any of Dan John Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The first of this series. Great performance, just like this previous Hamilton serious!


    Any additional comments?

    So proud I live in Michigan!

    "Getting better"

    This book was better than the first in the series. I'm becoming a McKnight fan. Some of the characters are a tad lame.
