Alex is content with his low-key existence, until a young Native American woman asks for his help – ostensibly to escape an abusive lover – and then disappears without a trace from one of his cabins. Feeling responsible, Alex begins a frantic search, swatting away his self-appointed “partner” – the town’s favorite fool – until the man surprises him. It’s a search that leads to encounters with a variety of unsavory types, each with his own agenda, and to some extremely unpleasant discoveries by McKnight himself as he forcibly learns that criminal sadism knows no geographic boundaries and that the motives of both good and evil people can lead to disaster.
Hamilton's crisp, evocative style and refreshingly genuine cast of characters cements his place among today’s most talented crime fiction writers. And his uniquely atmospheric rendering of place – especially the relentlessly frigid winter of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula – will send a palpable shiver down the listener’s spine. Listeners will want to bundle up and settle in.

Outstanding dialog and cast of characters
This series is very well written, the characters are wonderful and the chemistry between individuals is beautifully developed. I really like the development of the main character and his "partner", it continues from the first novel and develops very well in this sequel. As in the first story the ending is a surprise and plausible although well concealed. There is more action in this story but it is the steady building tension that holds the readers interest. This is a well written book, it brings the reader into this community and makes you a part of the conversation more than being a spectator. A great find and highly recommended.
