This is my third novel by Steve Hamilton, and the second in the Alex McKnight series. Steve Hamilton is a great writer, I really enjoy his style. This one is set deep in the Canadian wilderness, with a focus on the relationship between Alex and his good friend and neighbor Vinnie. They take a break from rebuilding Alex's cabin to go find out what has happened to Vinnie's brother, who has gone missing up in the Canadian wilderness. A convicted felon on parole, Vinnie's brother Tom has assumed Vinnie's identity in order to enter Canada to act as a guide on a moose hunt for some men up from Detroit.

Hamilton is able to capture and show the culture and lifestyle of the Ojibwa Tribe in this series of novels. In a market that has become quite crowded with series private eye characters, the Alex McNight series stands out.
