Summary (From the publisher):

Ex-cop and sometime P.I. Alex McKnight endures the bitter winter of Michigan's Upper Peninsula in his log cabin with warm fires and cold Molsons. When Dorothy Parrish, a young Ojibwa woman, asks him for shelter from her violent boyfriend, McKnight agrees. But after secreting her in one of his cabins, he finds her gone the next morning. McKnight suspects vicious, hockey-playing Lonnie Bruckman of abducting the woman. But his search for her brings on more suspects, bruising encounters, and a thickening web of crime, all obscured by the relentless whiplash of brutal snowstorms. From the secret world of the Ojibwa reservation to the Canadian border and deep into the silent woods, someone is out to kill, and McKnight is driving right into the line of fire...

Blurbs:
  • "Hamilton understands the border mentality, and his tensile prose, with its shifting images of heat and cold, light and dark, reflects the dramatic, often violent contradictions of people who live on the edge of the world." The New York Times Book Review
  • "Start to finish, an excellent mystery...This is the kind of book you climb inside and, when you're forced to leave, you wish you could stay a little longer." Booklist
  • "The isolated, wintry location jives well with Hamilton's pristine prose, independent protagonist, and ingenious plot. An inviting sequel to his Edgar Award-winning first novel, A Cold Day in Paradise." Library Journal
  • "Hamilton's protagonist is likable as well as durable, his raffish cast in sharply observed and entertaining. Morever, he knows how to pace a story, something of a lost art in recent crime fiction." Kirkus Reviews
  • "There's almost as much action in the book as there is snow, and there's heaps of white flakes. But Hamilton's first-person narrative has a lyric cadence and thoughtful tone that nicely counterpoints all the rough-and-tumble stuff." Orlando Sentinel
  • "In his second novel, Steve Hamilton continues the high standards he set in his Edgar-winning debut, A Cold Day in Paradise. Winter of the Wolf Moon is an entertaining tale buoyed by solid plotting, wry humor and brisk pacing...characters are so well-shaped they hit the scene breathing." Ft . Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
