Alex McKnight finds himself in over his head when he and his occasional partner, Leon Prudell, agree to help Randy Wilkins, his old minor league teammate, find Randy's old flame, a woman he had walked away from nearly thirty years before.

McMillan Palgrave
New York Times Bestselling Author of Die a Stranger

Before he became a private investigator, before he served in the Detroit police, and long before he retreated to the wintry reaches of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Alex McKnight played ball in the minor leagues. He doesn’t spend much time thinking about those days, at least not until a former teammate comes looking for him. . . .

The man’s here to ask a favor. He wants Alex to help him find the woman with whom he had a brief, passionate affair three decades ago. Who is Alex to deny his friend a chance to ward off a classic midlife chill by rekindling an old flame? But as the search deepens, McKnight begins to suspect that he hasn’t been told the full story. And there might just be a reason why this mysterious woman is so hard to find.


Blackwell North Amer
According to Alex McKnight and anyone else who lives there, "April in Paradise is still cold enough to hurt you." So, on a typical chilly April night, McKnight is sitting in his usual chair at the inn drinking his Canadian beer, unaware that even then someone is traveling two thousand miles to see him. It is Randy Wilkins, the crazy southpaw pitcher who used to keep McKnight dancing behind the plate in their minor-league days. They haven't seen each other in thirty years, but Randy is convinced that McKnight is the right man to help him on his quest. Randy has come back to Michigan to find Maria, the one true love of his life. The only problem? Randy walked away from her in 1971 and hasn't seen or heard from her since.
McKnight can't believe what he is hearing. The whole story sounds ridiculous, but McKnight, occasionally known for being a soft touch, agrees to help Randy look for her.
The search takes them to Detroit, and as it deepens, McKnight begins to realize that he is an unwilling player in a dangerous game.

Hamilton has a gift for writing, but the plot of this book starts on thin ice and barely manages not to crack before the book is over. It will be interesting to see how he manages to develop the main character in the series in future books given where he lives and what he does (or doesn't do)
