FORGOTTEN BOOK: A Cold Day in Paradise

A COLD DAY IN PARADISE – Steve Hamilton – 1998

In this first novel by Steve Hamilton, Alex McKnight is an ex-cop from the mean streets of Detroit. With a bullet imbedded next to his heart, he retreats to the cold of Paradise, Michigan. Now a private investigator for a lawyer, Alex is content until he stumbles across a murder scene, and the sight of blood stirs horrible memories of his partner’s death in Detroit. Spine-chilling messages left for him sound remarkably like the disturbed psycho who shot him and his partner fourteen years ago. But the psycho is in jail! How can he be in Paradise and in jail? Hamilton writes a superb thriller that catches you right from the start. Alex is an intriguing character–not mancho and yet not a wimp either. His fear of the past was so gripping that it really set the tone for this eerie murder mystery.
