Series: Alex McKnight Mysteries

Summary (From the publisher):

Lying facedown on the floor with a gun to the back of his head is where Alex McKnight finds himself after a game of cards turns into a professional heist at the home of local developer Win Vargas. When the dust settles, McKnight is one of police chief Roy Maven's lead suspects. Worse, Vargas' own sense of vigilante justice has targeted the former private eye as well, and the brash millionaire may be responsible for the sudden disappearance of Alex's best friend, Jackie. Now, with officials pointed in the wrong direction and his closest allies either missing or in jail, Alex knows he is the only one who can uncover the truth. But McKnight can't possibly know how dark this conspiracy truly is, or how close to guilt he actually stands.

Blurbs:
  • "Steve Hamilton writes the kind of stories that one can't resist...his tensile prose...reflects the dramaic, often violent contradictions of people who live on the edge of the world." The New York Times Book Review
  • "Superb! Hamilton keeps the action fast and furious and manages to keep the reader off balance." Publishers Weekly
  • "A brisk, well-plotted tale." Kirkus Reviews
  • "A bracing, sometimes side-splitting novel." Booklist
  • "Agreeable plot twists (the revelation of whodunit really is a surprise), and thoughtfully engages some larger questions about wilderness real estate developments and the limits of friendship." Washington Post
  • "A complex, solid story enhanced by unpredictable twists and turns. Psychological suspense and an excellent chase scene propels North of Nowhere to its most rewarding conclusion." Florida Sun-Sentinel
  • "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
