"I really like his main character, Alex McKnight, and I'm ready to revisit Paradise, Michigan."—James Patterson

New York Times Bestselling Author of Die a Stranger

Steve Hamilton's novels have won the mystery world's most prestigious awards. Now, in North of Nowhere, he returns to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where former Detroit cop Alex McKnight has learned that wherever money goes, envy isn't far behind.

After a game of cards turns into a professional heist, Alex McKnight finds himself lying facedown on the floor with a gun to the back of his head. When the dust settles, McKnight is one of the police chief's lead suspects. Worse, one of the other card players has the same idea, and he has no qualms about exercising some vigilante justice of his own. Now, Alex knows he is the only one who can uncover the truth. But he's about to discover how dark this conspiracy truly is—or how close to guilt he actually stands. . . .

Reviews

Praise for North of Nowhere

“Superb! Hamilton keeps the action fast and furious and manages to keep the reader off balance.” —Publishers Weekly

“A bracing, sometimes sidesplitting...novel.” —Booklist

“Hamilton packs plenty of hardscrabble characters and pithy dialogue into a nifty mystery...there's nothing like a bit of Paradise-Michigan, that is.” —Columbia State

North of Nowhere has a twisty plot with genuine surprises, but it's the understanding of the people who live in the Upper Peninsula and the love for both the harshness and beauty of the Lake Superior shoreline that make this another good entry in a terrific series.” —Flint Journal

“A fast-paced book with wonderful characters...Hamilton writes great prose.” —ReviewTheEvidence.com

“A robust entry...Alex is at his best and the support cast augments the isolated feeling of going north of nowhere that shows why Steve Hamilton is an award-winning author.” —Internet Bookwatch
