Alex McKnight Novels

Alex McKnight, once a Detroit police officer, now a reluctant part-time private investigator, lives in Michigan’s remote Upper Peninsula, where he discovers that trouble can find you anywhere, even in a town called Paradise.  Steve Hamilton’s New York Times bestselling crime series began in 1998 with the Edgar Award-winning A Cold Day in Paradise, and continues through book number eight, Misery Bay, which came out in June, 2011.
