Publisher's Summary

Late one night, a plane lands on a deserted airstrip. Five dead bodies are found there the next morning. And now Vinnie LeBlanc is missing. Vinnie is an Ojibwa tribal member, a blackjack dealer at the Bay Mills Casino, and he just might be Alex McKnight’s best friend. He’s come through for Alex more than once in the past, and he never ever misses a day of work. So Alex can’t help but be worried.
There’s a deadly crime war creeping into Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, leaving bodies in its wake, and Alex wouldn’t think for a minute that his friend could be involved. But when an unexpected and unwelcome stranger arrives in town, Alex will soon find out that the stakes are higher than he ever could have imagined.
Two-time Edgar Award winner and New York Times bestselling author Steve Hamilton returns with this outstanding new novel - perhaps his boldest book yet.

Alex is back

Would you consider the audio edition of Die a Stranger to be better than the print version?

Yes, narrator Miller makes the book


Would you be willing to try another book from Steve Hamilton? Why or why not?

Yes, this was my fifth and I will get around to finishing the series in good time


What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Miller is the perfect voice for Alex. Story not one of the best in the series but narrator keeps it alive.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Maybe not in one sitting but three days well spent


Any additional comments?

Maybe time to to give Alex a hiatus again and try some stand alone's. Lock Artist and Nightwork were great as well. Either way, keep them coming Mr. Hamilton.

No. 9 in the Steve McKnight series.

This is the ninth in the Alex McKnight series. Alex, a former cop, with a private eye license and a number of cabins in a fishing camp in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, hears about a private plane landing at a nearby small airport, and the next morning five bodies are found. Everyone figures it’s the latest in the drug wars where planes come in from Canada loaded with marijuanaand it is sold in the lower 48 states for great profit. The war has risen to new levels when one gang highjacks the plane of another gang and takes over their drug racket. Alex becomes involved because his best friend, Vinnie LeBlanc,an Ojibwa Indian and a blackjack dealer at the casino, turns up missing. He has never missed a day of work but he’s gone. As time goes on, Alex learns that Vinnie’s cousin, Buck got himself involved with these drug gangsters and when the shooting started he panicked and called Vinnie to come and get him. Buck and Vinnie were captured. Then Vinnie’s father, imprisoned for the last 30 years, shows up because he’s heard that Vinnie is missing, and he and Alex set off to find him. A steady stream of terror and captures and escapes follow. The background to all of this is the relationship Alex and Vinnie have, and Alex’s relationship to the rest of the Indians. Very good.
