Publisher Description

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.

Misery Bay

This was actually the first of Steve Hamilton's books that I read. I live in the Upper Peninsula not too far from Misery Bay and at the very beginning of this book, I was hooked. The whole book just kept me guessing on the outcome and it totally was a surprise ending. I loved every minute of it. The reference to areas I know very well was awesome. The reference to him stopping at the Toivola Lunch For a pop was cool. I frequently eat there. It is currently run by my brother and his wife. The college kids and him meeting at the downtowner was also neat. It's the kids favorite hot spot. In fact when I was telling my son about this portion of the book, he asked me if they ran into his sister there. I plan to read all Steve's books now. I currently am reading A Cold Day In Paradise and enjoying that one as well. It was a thriller that kept my interest through every chapter. A must read, if you are from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!
