    superb seventh McKnight mystery

    In the Upper Peninsular of Michigan, retired Detroit cop Alex McKnight noted how freezing the Fourth of July is this year as he stops in Brimley for a drink or two and a baseball game on TV to warm his insides though he knows summer here lasts one day. Even a brass monkey would freeze its balls off in this cold. Alex, his so-called sleuthing partner Leon Prudell (of Prudell-McKnight Investigation fame) and Coast Guard Auxiliary Tyler soon are outside in the cold rescuing three drunken men (Cap, Harry, and Brucie) from a boating accident in nearby Waishkey Bay. --- Not long after saving the lives of the trio, the grateful threesome return to Brimley and accuse Alex and his two friends (make that one pal and a possible bud) of stealing their locked box from their devastated boat. Angrily, Alex does a bit of investigating and learns that the gruesome threesome are extorting the Bay Mills Indian tribe out of government funded painkillers that they resell on the black market. As he continue his inquiries, his Ontario police officer girlfriend Natalie Reynaud arrives at his cabin in Paradise because her undercover illegal arms case has connections on the American side of Lake Superior that soon ties into Alex¿s prescription medicine investigation. --- The seventh McKnight mystery is a superb entry that not only brings to life the area, but also highlights a growing problem with prescription pill contraband. The story line is filled with twists and turns, and red herrings as everyone seems as if they are double crossing one another until the shocking climax. Steve Hamilton is at his Edgar best with this unnerving tale in which the chilling weather fits the mood. --- Harriet Klausner

    highly recommend! if you enjoyed the first 6 you will love this one!

    Alex must deal with a great amount of emotions and of course dangers in this book. Vinnie, Leon, and Jackie are all there to help and even Chief Maven plays a part in this one. I really enjoy these books and cannot wait to get to the next one!

    Heartbreakingly Wonderful

    It's extremely rare for me to remain loyal to an author who completly breaks my heart. Steve Hamilton is one of those very few. A Stolen Season is beautiful in all of its violence and I continue to love Alex more and more with each book. I love how the weather and its elements remain as strong a character in Steve's novels as the humans. But man, Steve, cut this guy a tiny break. Please. My heart is heavy for Alex and his 'I'm destined to be alone' thoughts. I'm ready for the next Alex novel and I'm going to have a real hard time waiting for it.

    Hamilton at his best!

    If you like Steve Hamilton's writing, and the Alex McNight series in particular, this is one of Steve's best! If your new to the series, I wouldn't start with this one - go back to at least #5. I keep thinking he's going to run out of things to say, but it certainly hasn't happened yet. Good Stuff!

    AWESOME!

    If you are from Michigan this is a "must read". Even if you are not from Michigan, the Alex McNight series is great!
