Contributed

BOOK: Misery Bay
AUTHOR:  Steve Hamilton
PUBLISHER: Orion, Hachette Aust
RRP: $29.99


ON A cold, frosty night on a remote shore of Lake Superior known as Misery Bay, a young man is found hanging from a tree.

Ex-policeman Alex McKnight has the task of trying to find out why the boy decided to end his life in this particularly eerie setting in Michigan.

The boy's devastated father Charles Razniewski, also an ex-policeman, desperately wants answers on why his seemingly happy son decided to kill himself.

So he tasks McKnight, along with the town's chief of police Roy Maven, to try and find out why.

But the more they delve into the case, the more they suspect foul play.

Soon McKnight is faced with tracking down a serial killer who has one thought on his mind: revenge.

Just who is next on his list?

This is Steve Hamilton's eighth novel based around private detective and reluctant investigator McKnight.

I'm generally a fan of thrillers and this definitely didn't let me down.

After reading this novel, I've decided Hamilton is a cut above the rest.

He didn't rush the story which panned out superbly.

It didn't let up, with twists and turns that kept me enthralled without being too drawn out.

I can gladly say I'm already sourcing out more of Hamilton's work.
