New York Times Bestselling Author of Die a Stranger

Before he became a private investigator, before he served in the Detroit police, and long before he retreated to the wintry reaches of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Alex McKnight played ball in the minor leagues. He doesn't spend much time thinking about those days, at least not until a former teammate comes looking for him. . . .

The man's here to ask a favor. He wants Alex to help him find the woman with whom he had a brief, passionate affair three decades ago. Who is Alex to deny his friend a chance to ward off a classic midlife chill by rekindling an old flame? But as the search deepens, McKnight begins to suspect that he hasn't been told the full story. And there might just be a reason why this mysterious woman is so hard to find.

This book should be listed as the book 2 in the Alex McKnight series as it was copyrighted in 2001 and not in 2013 as noted in all the library ads for it.

Hamilton has a gift for writing, but the plot of this book starts on thin ice and barely manages not to crack before the book is over. It will be interesting to see how he manages to develop the main character in the series in future books given where he lives and what he does (or doesn't do)
