Publisher's Summary

When a fire is done, what's left is only half-destroyed. It is charred and brittle. It is obscene. There is nothing so ugly in all the world as what a fire leaves behind, covered in ashes and smoke and a smell you'll think about every day for the rest of your life.Reluctant investigator Alex McKnight finds himself drawn by friendship into a long drive north. The brother of Alex's longtime Ojibwa friend Vinnie LeBlanc works as a hunting guide, serving the rich clients from downstate. It seems that Vinnie's brother and his most recent group of hunters have vanished in northern Ontario, and Vinnie is scared enough to ask Alex to help him find them.Their arrival sets in motion a heart-pounding string of events that leaves Alex and his friend miles from civilization, stranded in the heart of the Canadian wilderness with no food, no weapons -and no way out. And there's someone out there who definitely does not want them to make it back alive.At once elegant and enormously suspenseful, Steve Hamilton's Blood Is the Sky heralds his arrival as one of the premier crime writers working today.

Narration Killed this story

I often wonder why publishers would change narrators in the middle of a series when the original narrator is fantastic. If you have read my previous reviews of Steve Hamilton's work in this series this review is going to surprise you. I could barely get through this story the narration was so horrible - Jim Bond destroys this book - period. The accent for Vinny and the woman from Canada besides sounding like they are being read to a first grade audience also sound like they are androids, or aliens from a "B" sci fi space movie - and if you do listen to this story and hear them you will see what I mean, it is so annoying and terrible it is almost funny except you are cringing the whole time. Rarely have I recommended not continuing with a series because of the narration but on this occasion I would. Up to this point the stories and narration have been well done, but from this point on it goes downhill like a double black diamond ski slope.

Horrible narration

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Nobody...worst narrator I've ever listened to. If you've listed to Hamilton's books in order in this series, the change of narrators is disappointing.
