The latest Alex McKnight Michigan investigative thriller is a great tale

Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan Police Chief Roy Maven visits retired Detroit cop Alex McKnight at the Glasgow Inn. Maven bites his tongue as he asks private investigator McKnight to help a friend, U.S. Marshal Charles "Raz" Razniewski. Raz is the father of a "suicide" victim who took his life two months ago at Misery Bay overlooking Lake Superior. Apparently two other college students killed themselves at that same location too.

McKnight agrees to investigate although he does not hide his feelings that the dad sadly seeking a different closure explanation cannot accept his son hung himself. He changes his mind when Raz is murdered and soon afterward so are the fathers of the other "suicides". McKnight and Maven team up on the inquiry accompanied by FBI field agent Janet Long.

The latest Alex McKnight Michigan investigative thriller (see A Stolen Season) is a great tale with the twist from previous cases being the professional rivals forge a strong cooperative team. With a ruthless killer on the loose reminding McKnight of the bullet lodged near his heart in a frozen pristine Paradise, fans will relish the M&M (and Long) whodunit.

$25.00 for a ebook what are they think?

Get the book at a discounter for a cheaper price. There is just no reason for this ebook to have such a high price, except greed.

    A Return to Paradise

    Steve Hamilton has returned to his Alex McKnight series after several years. The novel shifts the characters by teaming Alex with his nemesis Chief Roy Maven in a search for a killer of law enforcement officers. When we last saw McKnight (A Stolen Season) he had sunk deep in despair and tragedy. This novel begins his return to a life where hope is possible. The story is more thriller than mystery and the ending a bit out there but Hamilton keeps you interested in his protagonist, a man scarred by violence and tragedy.Few writers are better at writing terse prose that reminds you of Chandler, Hammett,and that other Michigan PI writer, Loren D. Estleman.
