A new trade paperback edition of one of the most acclaimed novels in Steve Hamilton''s New York Times bestselling series


Before Blood is the Sky, the Alex McKnight series had already hit the USA Today bestseller list and won awards, but this novel took Steve Hamilton to a whole new level. This newly repackaged edition gives readers a chance to rediscover this standout tale set in the forests of northern Ontario, a land of savage beauty and sudden danger, where some secrets just won''t stay buried. 
 
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 questions there become.

"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

About the Author

STEVE HAMILTON’s first Alex McKnight novel, A Cold Day in Paradise, won both an Edgar and a Shamus Award for Best First Novel. The Lock Artist was named a New York Times Notable Crime Book, received an Alex Award from the American Library Association, and then went on to win the Edgar Award for Best Novel, making him only the second author (after Ross Thomas) to win Edgars for both Best First Novel and Best Novel. He now lives in Cottekill, New York, with his wife and their two children.

Editorial Reviews

"The best private eye novel—heck, maybe the best novel—I''ve read this year." —Harlan Coben

"The best mysteries are about the past coming up out of the ground and grabbing the present by the throat. . . . Blood is the Sky fills that bill and then some. This is his best yet." —Michael Connelly

"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
