Winter of the Wolf Moon Summary

Sequel to Hamilton's award-winning first novel (A Cold Day in Paradise), the story returns us to the small town of Paradise, Michigan where ex-Detroit police detective and reluctant private investigator, Alex McKnight, rents out small cabins to snowmobilers and tried to bury his demons under the snow he plows each day.

Alex is content with his low-key existence, until a young Native American woman asks for his help – ostensibly to escape an abusive lover – and then disappears without a trace from one of his cabins. Feeling responsible, Alex begins a frantic search, swatting away his self-appointed “partner” – the town’s favorite fool – until the man surprises him. It’s a search that leads to encounters with a variety of unsavory types, each with his own agenda, and to some extremely unpleasant discoveries by McKnight himself as he forcibly learns that criminal sadism knows no geographic boundaries and that the motives of both good and evil people can lead to disaster.

Hamilton's crisp, evocative style and refreshingly genuine cast of characters cements his place among today’s most talented crime fiction writers. And his uniquely atmospheric rendering of place – especially the relentlessly frigid winter of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula – will send a palpable shiver down the listener’s spine. Listeners will want to bundle up and settle in.

    Lying face down on the floor with a gun to the back of his head is where Alex McKnight finds himself after a game of cards turns into a professional heist at the home of local developer Win Vargas. When the dust settles, McKnight is one of police chief Roy Maven’s lead suspects.

    On a cold, miserable night in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, an antique wooden boat runs full-speed into a line of old railroad pilings in the shallow waters of Waishkey Bay. When Alex McKnight helps rescue the passengers, he finds three men. The driver is out cold, the other two are dazed but conscious. When they're all finally back on dry land and sent away in an ambulance, Alex figures he'll never see them again. He couldn't be more wrong.

    On a frozen January night, a young man loops one end of a long rope over the branch of a tree. The other end he ties around his neck. A snowmobiler will find him 36 hours later, his lifeless eyes staring out at the endless coldwater of Lake Superior. It happens in a lonely corner of the Upper Peninsula, in a place they call Misery Bay, a good 250 miles west of Paradise.
