This is the second Alex McKnight book. Can it really be better than the first one? You betcha! In fact, they are going to make a movie about it. It's deep winter in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and it's cold, cold, cold! Near zero and below, and Alex gets involved in weird mystery concerning a missing Indian woman from the nearby reservation, a manic thug hockey player, nasty Russian drug dealers, and lots of goings-on back and forth across the border. This book really rocks! It never stops with the action and it's really hard to put down. Alex McKnight is terrific!
