On a frozen January night, a young man hangs himself in a lonely corner of the Upper Peninsula, in a place they call Misery Bay. Alex McKnight does not know this young man, and he won't even hear about the suicide until two months later, when the last person Alex would ever expect comes to him for help.

What seems like a simple quest to find a few answers will turn into a nightmare of sudden violence and bloody revenge, and a race against time to catch a ruthless and methodical killer. McKnight knows all about evil. Mobsters, drug dealers, hit men--he's seen them all, and they've taken away almost everything he's ever loved. But none of them could have ever prepared him for the darkness he's about to face.

A New York Times bestseller, Michigan Notable Book, and Boston Globe Best Crime Book of the Year, Steve Hamilton's Misery Bay marks the return of one of crime fiction's most critically acclaimed series.

Gets off to a slower start than some of Hamilton's books but picks up quickly. The usual cast of engaging characters, a central concept that is out of the ordinary and clever plotting make this an enjoyable read.

"The latest and best in the superb Alex McKnight series, set in Michigan’s rugged Upper Peninsula, has Alex facing the worst case of his career. A serial killer has centred his work in the isolated hamlet of Misery Bay. McKnight is at his laid-back and intelligent best as he confronts a man who is less an understandable criminal than outright evil,"
