“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. . . .
