Misery Bay," the eighth in Steve Hamilton's Alex McKnight series, begins with an apparent suicide in a cold and desolate site on the upper peninsula of Michigan. And it doesn't end there.

Alex McKnight does not know this young man, and he. .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.

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.

This is the eighth book in the Alex McKnight series, and I normally don’t like jumping in mid way through, but didn’t realise this when I got it from book club, and really think it didn’t matter as there was plenty of backstory and the mystery stood alone. I hadn’t heard of this author before but will be looking out for more of his work on the strength of this.

Narrated by Dan John Miller. On a frozen January night, a young man loops one end of a long rope over the branch of a tree. The other end he ties around his neck. A snowmobiler will find him thirty-six hours later, his lifeless eyes staring out at the endless cold water of Lake Superior. It happens in a lonely corner of the Upper Peninsula, in a place they call Misery Bay.

On a frozen January night, a young man loops one end of a long rope over the branch of a tree. The other end he ties around his neck. A snowmobiler will find him thirty-six hours later, his lifeless eyes staring out at the endless cold water of Lake Superior. It happens 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 another cold night, two months later and 250 miles away, when the door to the Glasgow Inn opens and the last person Alex would ever expect to see comes walking in to ask for his 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 killer. McKnight knows all about evil, of course, having faced down a madman who killed his partner and left a bullet next to his heart. 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 prepared him for the darkness he’s about to face.

I continue to like Alex McKnight as a character, and I continue to enjoy the Upper Peninsula setting of this series. In this book, Alex's nemesis, Chief Roy Maven, actually walks into the Glasgow Inn (Alex's hangout) and asks for Alex's help. Throughout the book, the growing bond between Alex and Maven worked very well. In fact, it's one of the things I liked best about the book. Maven wants Alex to look into the suicide of a teen college student, the son of a man Maven rode with during his state trooper days. The plot is that somebody is murdering the children of law officers and making it look like suicide. And then, after the parents have suffered for weeks, thinking their child committed suicide, the murderer kills the father, too. (In each case, the parent who was the law officer is a man.)

The Feds, it seems, don't quite grasp this, and so Alex and Maven do sleuthing on their own, looking for evil. And this is where the book feels forced. First, that the Feds don't see what's happening. Second, the whole "evil" emphasis seems tacked on to the book. We are told over and over how evil the killer is. But being told becomes boring. And, in fact, we don't need to be told over and over. We can see for ourselves the horrible damage the fake suicides cause. Third, I don't know about you, but I prefer mysteries in which the killer is actually present as a character here and there throughout the novel. In this case, the killer is present only fleetingly, and I find that dissatisfying. And four, the single page italicized "thoughts" of the killer scattered throughout the book just don't work. They are forced, put there to maybe make us see that the killer is crazy. They simply aren't interesting.

What is interesting are the main characters and the setting. If you're a character- and setting-driven reader, you'll love this book. If you're a plot-driven reader, you might become impatient.

This series is a fun read for me as I am a yooper too, and very familiar with the setting of the stories. This one is good and keeps moving right along. One snag tho; this guy McKnight spends entirely too much time in his pick-up driving all over the place. Seems like he is never in one place for any more than five minutes before he hops in the truck for another trip. Don't know when he has the time to get shot so often when he's always flying down Highway 75 or going over the bridge into Canada. Still, I love the series and have read them all and hope there is more to come.

"Misery Bay," the eighth in Steve Hamilton's Alex McKnight series, begins with an apparent suicide in a cold and desolate site on the upper peninsula of Michigan. Strangely, soon after the boy's father asks McKnight to look into the reasons behind his son's suicide, the father is found murdered. And it doesn't end there. Soon there are several "suicides" followed by the murder of a parent. McKnight is once again a reluctant investigator, but what makes this story different is that his usual companions, Vinnie and Leon, are replaced by the one man McKnight has the toughest time getting along with... Chief Roy Maven of the Sault Ste Marie police. But this time they must put there differences aside because it's beginning to look like Maven's daughter and therefore, Maven himself are next on the list. As always, Hamilton delivers a fast-paced story with lots of action.

Steve Hamilton may be one of the best crime/mystery writers in the literary world today. After his spectacular book The Lock Artist, Hamilton returns to the town of Paradise in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and his series of books featuring baseball player-turned-cop-turned-sometime-private investigator Alex McKnight. And it's truly like the return of an old friend, as Hamilton hooked me within the first few pages and kept me racing breathlessly until the book's conclusion.

One cold night, a college student hangs himself from a tree in the middle of a snowy, deserted field. He didn't leave a note, but suicides often don't. The boy's father, a federal marshal and an old friend of Alex McKnight's favorite nemesis, Police Chief Roy Maven, asks Alex to look into his son's suicide and try and find out why he might have chosen to end his life. But what appears to be a simple investigation uncovers a pattern of crimes more affecting and sinister than anyone ever expected, and Alex and Chief Maven find themselves thrown together, trying to find and stop a cold-blooded killer, all while Alex tries to put the demons of his past behind him.

Steve Hamilton knows how to tell a story amazingly well. It's a testament to his skill that he can make the eighth book in a series featuring many of the same characters feel as fresh as the first. The pacing is razor-sharp, the action is first-rate, and even as you think you've gotten the whole mystery figured out, he still has some tricks up his sleeve. If you've never read any of Hamilton's books, you don't know what you're missing--so remedy that right away! Can't wait to see what he comes up with next...
