Suspense Sunday: A Cold Day In Paradise by Steve Hamilton

Happy Sunday gang! From now on, for Suspense Sunday, I plan to not only feature great suspense that I have read, but also books that are upcoming or on my wishlist!

Today’s Feature Title: A Cold Day In Paradise by Steve Hamilton (Alex McKnight #1)

About the book (from
In an unprecedented literary event, Steve Hamilton’s A Cold Day In Paradise has hit mystery’s Double Play, winning the two most prestigious honors in the business— the Edgar and Shamus Awards for Best First Novel. Now, open its covers and see for yourself why this extraordinary novel has galvanized the literary and mystery community as no other book before it…

Other than the bullet lodged less than a centimeter from his heart, former Detroit police officer Alex McKnight thought he had put the nightmare of his partner’s death and his own near-fatal injury behind him. After all, Maximilian Rose, convicted of the crimes, has been locked in the state pen for years, But in the small town of Paradise, Michigan, where McKnight has traded his badge for a cozy cabin in the woods, a murderer with Rose’s unmistakable trademarks appears to be back to his killing ways. With Rose locked away, McKnight can’t understand who else would know the intimate details of the old murders— not to mention the signature blood-red rose left on his doorstep. And it seems like it’ll be a frozen day in Hell before McKnight can unravel the cold truth from a deadly deception in a town that’s anything but Paradise.

Note: I’ve heard that this series will appeal to fans of Michael Connelly’s Bosch series. If that’s the case, I’m there!
