On a frozen January night, a young man loops one end of a long rope over the branch of a tree and ties the other end around his neck. A snowmobiler finds him thirty-six hours later in that lonely corner of Lake Superior's Upper Peninsula called Misery Bay. Alex McKnight does not know this young man, and he won't even hear about the suicide until another cold night, three months later and 250 miles away, when the door to the Glasgow Inn opens and the last person Alex would ever expect to see comes walking in to ask for his help. What seems like a simple quest to find a few answers will turn into a nightmare of sudden violence and bloody revenge, and a race against time to catch a ruthless killer.

This was a great story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I got to the last 50 or so pages and had to keep reading to find out "who done it". I have really enjoy all of Steve Hamilton's novels.

Good books don't give up all their secrets at once.

Gets off to a slower start than some of Hamilton's books but picks up quickly. The usual cast of engaging characters, a central concept that is out of the ordinary and clever plotting make this an enjoyable read.

"The latest and best in the superb Alex McKnight series, set in Michigan’s rugged Upper Peninsula, has Alex facing the worst case of his career. A serial killer has centred his work in the isolated hamlet of Misery Bay. McKnight is at his laid-back and intelligent best as he confronts a man who is less an understandable criminal than outright evil,"
