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
