    I like Alex s sense of humor but I was not satisfied with that ending.


  3. Michael Michael says:

    It s a good sign that the Alex McKnight books keep getting better Still not as good as The Lock Artist, but Hamilton clearly cares about his craft, and there s a lot to like here Very well paced with two very different halves of the book that really work well together Glad I stuck with the series.

    Another terrific Alex McKnight novel It s twisty and surprising with characters, especially McKnight, that are vivid and believable.

    The title, The Hunting Wind suggests the spirituality of mischief and mayhem in mostly menacingly cold weather This is the 3nd book in the Alex McKnight series which normally contains at least a dozen aspects of stereotypical Michigan The same retired inner city policeman from the other 9 novels reluctantly partners with recurrent character and private investigator wannabe Leon Prudell He finds himself in a mystery, on a road trip around the state and reminiscing about baseball

    Hamilton writes a good story This is the 5th book that I ve read of his, the 3rd in the Alex McKnight series, and all 5 have been very good Mr Hamilton doesn t write stories with neatly wrapped endings with a pretty bow If there s a bow at all it s ragged and frayed Sometimes you want that neat ending and that pretty bow but sometimes you want things that are a bitrealistic Sometimes you want a story where the bad guys don t necessarily get their comeuppance because that s the way li Hamilton writes a good story This is the 5th book that I ve read of his, the 3rd in the Alex McKnight series, and all 5 have been very good Mr Hamilton doesn t write stories with neatly wrapped endings with a pretty bow If there s a bow at all it s ragged and frayed Sometimes you want that neat ending and that pretty bow but sometimes you want things that are a bitrealistic Sometimes you want a story where the bad guys don t necessarily get their comeuppance because that s the way life can be all too often This little tale has an old teammate of Alex s who shows up and needs Alex to help him find a lost love for 30 years or so ago no matter how unrealistic that is And that s the best part of the story from Alex s point of view, because nothing other than a pretty girl seems to be true in this story And that s a typical Hamilton story If you are looking for a neat little story, all wrapped up in that bow I mentioned earlier, pass this one by If, on the other hand, you like a tale that keeps you guessing, that the only thing you re sure if is that there s nothing you can be sure of, then read this book There s a lot of that in here

    Obviously, I m very much enjoying the Alex McKnight series This is book 3, and IMO it was every bit as good as books 1 and 2 Love the main character, love the setting UP Michigan , and I love the twists and turns Very well done.Note Some language infrequent , and one R rated scene very brief This IS mainstream fiction, but if you re a fan of the police procedural which this isn t he s a retired cop but close enough , then you will probably enjoy it.

    It s a wonder how McKnight survived that long in the force, not to mention have a 3rd book Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, poor sap.The story was long and boring and I felt stuck in it with one of the most annoying secondary characters ever, and the clueless, hapless McKnight not to mention baseball which I know nothing about and couldn t care less about.
