A mystery series set in Michigan's upper peninsula? Sign me up! I was unfairly expecting something Brian Gruley-esque. Something full of humor. This wasn't what I was expecting.

The characters in Hamilton's Michigan take themselves very, very seriously. That's not to say they're not fun to read about, but there's certainly more angst than I was looking for.

That said, the plot moved along well, and I was genuinely in suspense at a number of places. The twist at the end didn't blindside me, but I like that a third of the book happened after the climax.

Lots to like, not a lot to love. I anxiously await Brian Gruley's next book, and will probably read another Hamilton before it's out.
