Staff Reviews

From its eerie and poignant first lines to its heart-stopping conclusion, this Michigan mystery by Edgar Award winning author Steve Hamilton is sure to hook you on the series.I absolutely loved it.

“There is a bullet in my chest, less than a centimeter from my heart.. I don’t think about it much anymore. It’s just kind of a part of me now. But every once in a while, on a certain kind of night, I remember that Bullet. I can feel its weight inside me. I can  feel its metallic hardness.”
—Steve Hamilton

Other than the bullet lodged less than a centimeter from his heart, former Detroit police officer Alex McKnight thought he had put the nightmare of his partner's death and his own near-fatal injury behind him. After all, Maximilian Rose, convicted of the crimes has been locked in the state pen for years. But in the small town of Paradise, Michigan, where McKnight has traded his badge for a cozy cabin in the woods, a murderer with Rose's unmistakable trademarks appears to be back to his killing ways. With Rose locked away, McKnight can't understand who else would know the intimate details of the old murders--not to mention the signature blood-red rose left on his doorstep. And it seems like it'll be a frozen day in Hell before McKnight can unravel the cold truth from a deadly deception in a town that's anything but paradise.

"Chilling as the November wind. A must for PI and suspense fans." --Charles Todd, author of Wings of Fire

"Hamilton combines clear, crisp writing, wily, colorful characters and an offbeat locale (Michigan's Upper Peninsula) in an impressive debut. ...This book won the Private Eye Writers of America/St. Martin's Press Award for Best First Private Eye Novel of 1997." --Publishers Weekly
