Ice Run: An Alex McKnight Novel (Alex McKnight Novels #6) (Paperback)
New York Times Bestselling Author of Die a Stranger
Edgar Award–winner Steve Hamilton introduced one of the most compelling characters in modern fiction with Alex McKnight. In Ice Run, Alex finds himself in the middle of a very strange mystery with much greater consequences than he ever anticipated. . . .
Alex McKnight is happier than he can remember being in a long time. And it's all because of a woman—Natalie Reynaud, a Canadian police officer. When they take a romantic weekend together at an old luxury hotel, however, they receive an unexpected message—someone has left a hat filled with snow, and a note that reads, "I know who you are."
As Alex searches for an explanation, he must face up against a terrible Reynaud family secret, a secret that to this day still drives men to kill.
