Alex McKnight RETURNS IN
"DIE A STRANGER"
“Every word counts in Edgar-winner
Hamilton’s masterful ninth novel featuring ex-cop Alex McKnight (after
2011’s Misery Bay). McKnight, who rents out cabins on Michigan’s Upper
Peninsula, is trying to put his time in the Detroit PD behind him, while
his best friend, Vinnie Red Sky LeBlanc, mourns the death of his mother,
Hazel. Considered a mother to the entire Bay Mills Indian Community,
Hazel mistook Vinnie shortly before her death for his estranged father.
The older LeBlanc killed three people while driving drunk, a crime that
made Vinnie a teetotaler. Given Vinnie’s strong antipathy toward
alcohol, McKnight is shocked to find his friend knocking back a few
scotches in a bar one night. Vinnie’s disappearance soon after may be
connected with illegal smuggling across the porous Canadian border.
Through his emotionally intelligent characterizations, McKnight
transforms what could have been a mundane plot into a sensitive
exploration of tragedy and redemption.”
