    Alex McKnight meets up with his lady love An old man wearing a distinctive hat says something to him in the corridor of the hotel Then the old man wanders outside in the cold and freezes to death.Alex, for no good reason, starts poking around, gets his butt kicked, and eventually unearths a mystery going back to the rum running days.For a guy that used to be a Detroit cop, McKnight is such a naif, I felt like throwing the book across the room

    I ve read all the books in the series and I m starting to feel like Alex McKnight is a real person There is a paragraph in this book that I marked to quote I d known enough liars in my life You can t be a cop without meeting plenty of them For the worst of them, the truly hopeless born liars, maybe this is how it all starts, by keeping a tight lid on your own secrets By never revealing the truth about yourself When you ve learned to control the truth, then you can start bending it Just a I ve read all the books in the series and I m starting to feel like Alex McKnight is a real person There is a paragraph in this book that I marked to quote I d known enough liars in my life You can t be a cop without meeting plenty of them For the worst of them, the truly hopeless born liars, maybe this is how it all starts, by keeping a tight lid on your own secrets By never revealing the truth about yourself When you ve learned to control the truth, then you can start bending it Just a little at first, then a littlewhen you see what it can do for you A lie can open doors for you Or close them

    This book was a delight I absolutely adore the character of Alex McKnight He s a real mess, but we understand why and love him all thefor it Seriously, what else can Steve Hamilton put this guy through I won t spoil it, but the final setting of this book was especially fun Keep them coming, Steve Just keep them coming.Note This is mainstream fiction and has a few adult scenes brief as well as some offensive languagethan his other books I think, but I found it easy to forgive This book was a delight I absolutely adore the character of Alex McKnight He s a real mess, but we understand why and love him all thefor it Seriously, what else can Steve Hamilton put this guy through I won t spoil it, but the final setting of this book was especially fun Keep them coming, Steve Just keep them coming.Note This is mainstream fiction and has a few adult scenes brief as well as some offensive languagethan his other books I think, but I found it easy to forgive because of what the character was going through

    Darn you, Steve Hamilton How am I supposed to get any work done around the house once I ve started one of your Alex McKnight novels They are almost impossible to put down, and Ice Run is no exception.Who knew that there was so much mystery to mine in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan Yeah, OK, Henry Kisor Joseph Heyward did, but we ll leave them to reviews of their own works Even if you do occasionally foray across the border into southwestern Ontario Yes, your characters Alex, Ja Darn you, Steve Hamilton How am I supposed to get any work done around the house once I ve started one of your Alex McKnight novels They are almost impossible to put down, and Ice Run is no exception.Who knew that there was so much mystery to mine in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan Yeah, OK, Henry Kisor Joseph Heyward did, but we ll leave them to reviews of their own works Even if you do occasionally foray across the border into southwestern Ontario Yes, your characters Alex, Jackie, Vinnie, and the like feel almost like family I want to drop into the Glasgow for a Molson s and a shot of Jameson s I want to see the locks from the casino in the Sault I want to ride snowmobiles through the woods by the cabins outside Paradise even if it WILL p ss off Alex Ice Run felt a bitconvoluted than some of your earlier works I had to stop a littleoften, think about what I d just read, and try to figure out how it fit in with what I d already read BUT I suppose a little thinking isn t a bad thing, even in escapist mysteries Still, a lesser McKnight novel is still better than a good any day.Consider this a 4 1 2 to 4 3 4 rating, rounded up to 5 Looking forward to A Stolen Season I have not yet read The Lock Artist or any other standalone works you may have done, so I limit my comments to the Paradise series

    I think it s safe to classify me as a fan of Steve Hamilton s by now Ice Run is money in the bank and is a good example of why.The Alex McKnight series has created memorable characters and locales that are so easy to fit right back into, a warm glove The series and Ice Run has a pitch perfect balance of setting, plot, and dialogue The pace crackles but doesn t move so fast that you can t feel the cold in your bones, the intrigue of the plot, and the emotion of the characters In fact, there I think it s safe to classify me as a fan of Steve Hamilton s by now Ice Run is money in the bank and is a good example of why.The Alex McKnight series has created memorable characters and locales that are so easy to fit right back into, a warm glove The series and Ice Run has a pitch perfect balance of setting, plot, and dialogue The pace crackles but doesn t move so fast that you can t feel the cold in your bones, the intrigue of the plot, and the emotion of the characters In fact, there s very little to not like about Ice Run I particularly like how, in this sixth outing, the characters still feel fresh yet familiar, enough that you d brave the loads of snow dumped in the pages just to hang out with them Hamilton does an excellent job at making the supporting cast of Ice Run feel unique, each of the minor characters seeming significant enough to last past the final page And that s quite a task, because there are parts when the cast can get a little bit crowded, so for Hamilton to handle that deftly deserves a round of applause.Maybe the only place Ice Run isn t a white hot success is that while the emotion is always palpable and present, I didn t find THAT moment one where the action or story boils over into a singular moment where the reader is left speechless and shuddering That won t turn off some folks, though, because the rest is just so very good Recommended for just about everyone who loves fiction, even those new to this series Hamilton made it rewarding for regular readers, but accessible for new ones as well Ice Run wasn t published this year, but it s definitely one of the best books I ve read this year And it puts Steve Hamilton on my always read list, which, honestly, was long overdue

    The fisticuffs and slit eyebrows and concussions and cracked ribs get really, really, really, really, really tiresome and repetitive in this series Alex should be dead by now from CTE if not blood loss and what HAS TO BE a migrating bullet near his heart, given all the punches he s taken to the chest Hamilton writes great scenes but his plotting and wrap ups leave much to be desired I need a break from this series He writes just as well or better than C.J Box and William Kent Krueger both The fisticuffs and slit eyebrows and concussions and cracked ribs get really, really, really, really, really tiresome and repetitive in this series Alex should be dead by now from CTE if not blood loss and what HAS TO BE a migrating bullet near his heart, given all the punches he s taken to the chest Hamilton writes great scenes but his plotting and wrap ups leave much to be desired I need a break from this series He writes just as well or better than C.J Box and William Kent Krueger both of whose heroes live and fight and do their PI sheriff game warden macho man thang in the snowy upper Midwest but he falls far short of both in plotting, resolution and overall credibility and catharsis Love reading Hamilton s series for the writing and compelling drive but am always somewhat and somehow disappointed in the whole

    Took me a while to finish this one, not because it s not good it is But Alex gets the snot beaten out of himthan once here, and honestly, I like the character so much, I had to take a break from reading this book It was getting that intense

    it is not clear how the romance will end The couple were together at the end of the book But it is open ended meaning Hamilton can get a different girl friend for his hero if he needs one It is in a James Lee Burke style Independent guy Ex cop Doesn t always think first Has some very loyal and helpful friends Hero gets beat up badly This is a love interest The Grant boys get the raw end of the deal all the way around The Deus ex machina of a solution is a video tape I wanted to finis it is not clear how the romance will end The couple were together at the end of the book But it is open ended meaning Hamilton can get a different girl friend for his hero if he needs one It is in a James Lee Burke style Independent guy Ex cop Doesn t always think first Has some very loyal and helpful friends Hero gets beat up badly This is a love interest The Grant boys get the raw end of the deal all the way around The Deus ex machina of a solution is a video tape I wanted to finish the story and find out how it ended, but it was not a mystery that you as the reader were supposed to be able to solve as you read it

    An exciting page turner, but not up to the usual standards of the series Motives, characters, and plot are just a touch too unbelievable for me Alex has gotten himself beat up a few too many times, and Natalie has just gotten annoying as his eager then reluctant girlfriend Still, the cold, stormy, remote, life threatening Upper Peninsula is almost a character in itself, and scary as it is, it s far less dangerous than that dark, ocean sized lake out there.
