Reviews

"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"

"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"
