Steve Hamilton's first novel 'A Cold Day in Paradise' was superb, recalling as I said in my amazon.co.uk review the excitement I felt after reading the first Lee Child book.
'Winter of the Wolf Moon' removes any doubt that the author has his own voice and agenda: this is a strong novel that builds on the main character and his reluctant-partner side-kick. We get a feeling for the snow and the bitter cold of the US/Canadian border country of Michigan, and by the end of this second novel we know a lot more about the character and his motivations. You don't need to have read 'Cold Day...' first, but it does help in explaining McKnight's situation.
It usually takes a thriller writer several tries to establish such a character, but Steve Hamilton has done it two here. He is so readable that this really is couldn't-put-down stuff. (I read it on holiday by the pool - you just couldn't drag me away from that book and that water and that cold beer in my hand...)
There's a third novel out in the US, and a fourth being finished round about now I hear. Get into this series and the inimitable Alex McKnight character as soon as you can, because this is going to run and run, and get even better as the characters and the plots sink in more over time.
I don't like saying anything about the story in reviews lke this: when a book's this readable and exciting, I want every other reader to experience the whole thing from scratch. All I will say is, prepare to feel the Coldness.

Steve Hamilton’s novels are so enjoyable to read. This time Alex McKnight gets mixed up with a woman named Dorothy who asks for his help. Abused by her boyfriend, she just wants to get away. After letting her stay at one of his cabins, she turns up missing. Alex thinks her violent boyfriend may have kidnapped her and feels personally responsible for her disappearance. Later he finds out that she had a bag full of drugs and her boyfriend isn’t the only one looking for her. Fast-paced and always a joy to read, Alex almost dies twice—once after four hockey players beat the crap out of him and then again when he is left to freeze to death in the woods. Alex’s personality leaps from the pages and I can’t get enough of his wry humor.

This book has such wonderful imagery that I had to read under quilts. A native American girl is missing and Alex McKnight is coerced into finding her. Along the way he forms a reluctant partnership, and gets tossed around pretty good.
A great book by a great new writer.

Format: Paperback
This book picks up closely after A Cold Day In Paradise ends off. An Indian girl comes to Alex McKnight for help getting away from her violent and drugged up boyfriend. He thinks she'll be safe in one of his cabins, but in the morning she has disappeared leaving behind signs of a struggle. Assuming that her boyfriend tracked her down, Alex is determined to find her and ensure that she's safe. However it will emerge that there are several others who are equally determined to find her.

Steve Hamilton's books are highly enjoyable to read. They tear along at a good pace, with plenty of intrigue to hold your interest and a sardonic sense of humour as well. They also make wonderful use of their setting in northern Michigan. Admittedly this installment has a slightly weak ending, but still better than many other books in this genre. It's a hard book to put down - I read it in a day. If you haven't read this series yet, consider yourself lucky at what's in store for you, but if you can track it down, do start with A Cold Day In Paradise.
