Steve Hamilton won the Edgar Award for his first novel. Since then he has been nominated twice for the Anthony Award Readers' Digest selected BLOOD IS THE SKY for a condensed book. Usually they select brand name authors only Praise for A STOLEN SEASON: 'Hamilton is one of the handful of superb new American crime writers who aren't getting the attention they deserve. This novel should change that' Independent on Sunday Brilliant reviews for previous novels: 'An automatic book of the year. Everything is here - his trademark sense of place, vivid, resonant characters, and a plot that will break your heart' Lee Child 'This book is relentless. I had to read it straight through. The best mysteries are about the past coming up out of the ground and grabbing the present by the throat. Steve Hamilton knows this. BLOOD IS THE SKY fills that bill and then some. This is his best yet' Michael Connelly
