Series: Alex McKnight Mysteries

Summary (From the publisher):

Alex McKnight isn't a man with many friends, but the few he has know they're never alone in a fix. So when Vinnie LeBlanc asks for his help in taking a trip deep into Canada in search of his missing brother, the Ojibwa Indian knows he can count on Alex. Tom LeBlanc had taken a job as hunting guide for a rough crew of Detroit "businessmen". The group was due back days ago, yet there's been no sign of them, and there's mounting evidence of something odd about their disappearing act. The trackless forests of northern Ontario keep many secrets, but none more shocking than the one that Alex is about to uncover. And the more closely Alex looks for answers, the more the questions become: where are the hunters...and who is the prey?

Edition Details:

Language: English

  • "Overflows with an element lacking from too many mysteries: a genuine sense of mystery...Blood boldly crosses genre boundaries as it turns into a thrilling outdoor adventure, then a hearfelt small-town tragedy. All along, Hamilton's prose...remains an unselfconsciously terse pleasure." Entertainment Weekly
  • "Heartily delivers on suspense, atmosphere, and riveting action." Denver Post
  • "Hamilton never misses a beat." Rocky Mountain News
  • "Hamilton won an Edgar and Anthony in 1998 for A Cold Day in Paradise. This smart, brisk, twisty tale is even better." Kirkus Reviews
  • "A fine writer, Hamilton excels at describing the lonely locale as well as depicting such memorable characters." Publishers Weekly
  • "Blood Is the Sky is brilliant. Some books you can't put down because the story is so compelling. Some books you can't put down because the prose is so spellbinding. And then, every once in a while, you read a book that combines both. Steve Hamilton has written the best private eye novel, heck, maybe the best novel, I've read this year." Harlan Coben, author of Left for Dead
  • "Steve Hamilton writes tough, passionate novels with a strong emphasis on heart and humanity. His latest flat-out smokes. This is crime writing at its very best." George Pelecanos, author of Hell to Pay
  • "Easily Steve Hamilton's best novel so far, therefore an automatic book of the year. Everything is here, his trademark sense of place, vivid, resonant characters, and a plot that will break your heart." Lee Child, author of Persuader
  • "This book is relentless. I had to read it straight through. The best mysteries are about the past coming up out of the ground and grabbing the present by the throat. Steve Hamilton knows this. Blood Is the Sky fills that bill and then some. This is his best yet." Michael Connelly, author of Chasing the Dime
