What seems to be an extended road trip around Michigan explodes into action in the last third of this new Alex McKnight novel. Steve Hamilton does an excellent job . ( )

I won this from the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.

It took awhile for me to really get into this book. It was slow for about the first 80 pages and then it started getting pretty interesting. The last 100 pages though really grabbed me and it became very difficult for me to put the book down. I liked the way the story unfolded and even though the ending wasn't totally happy, it was very fitting and left me satisfied. I will have to look for other books in this Alex McKnight series by this author. ( )

There's a deadly crime war creeping into the Upper Peninsula, leaving bodies in its wake, and Alex never would have expected that his friend could be involved. But when a mysterious stranger arrives in town also looking for Vinnie, Alex will soon find out that the stakes are higher than he ever could have imagined.
