About the Author

Steve Hamilton's first Alex McKnight novel, A Cold Day in Paradise, won both an Edgar and a Shamus Award for Best First Novel. His stand-alone novel, The Lock Artist, was named a New York Times Notable Crime Book, received an Alex Award from the American Library Association, and then went on to win the Edgar Award for Best Novel, making him only the second author (after Ross Thomas) to win Edgars for both Best First Novel and Best Novel. He attended the University of Michigan, where he won the prestigious Hopwood Award for writing, and now lives in Cottekill, New York, with his wife and their two children.

Reviews

"Superb! Hamilton keeps the action fast and furious and manages to keep the reader off balance."-"Publishers Weekly"

"A bracing, sometimes sidesplitting...novel."-"Booklist"

"Hamilton packs plenty of hardscrabble characters and pithy dialogue into a nifty mystery...there's nothing like a bit of Paradise-Michigan, that is."--"Columbia State"

""North of Nowhere" has a twisty plot with genuine surprises, but it's the understanding of the people who live in the Upper Peninsula and the love for both the harshness and beauty of the Lake Superior shoreline that make this another good entry in a terrific series."--"Flint Journal"

"A fast-paced book with wonderful characters...Hamilton writes great prose."
--"ReviewTheEvidence.com"

"A robust entry...Alex is at his best and the support cast augments the isolated feeling of going north of nowhere that shows why Steve Hamilton is an award-winning author."
--"Internet Bookwatch"
