Blood is the Sky Steve Hamilton Chapter One I saw a lot of fires when I was a cop in Detroit. I saw some real battles, but when they were done, the building would always be standing.

Blood is the Sky Steve Hamilton Chapter One I saw a lot of fires when I was a cop in Detroit. I was supposed to help secure the scene and then get the hell out of the way, but sometimes I’d stick around and watch the firefighters doing their work. That was the thing that got to me. The windows would be blown out, and maybe there’d be a big hole in the roof, but the building would still be there. Years later, I watched a Lake Superior storm taking down a boathouse.

Blood is the Sky. Blood is the Sky. I saw a lot of fires when I was a cop in Detroit. Years later, I watched a Lake Superior storm taking.

This is Steve Hamilton's fifth book in the series featuring former Detroit cop Alex McKnight, now 62 and living in Michigan's . Born and raised in the Detroit area, Steve Hamilton lives in upstate New York with his wife and two children. He is a winner of the prestigious EDGAR AWARD.

This is Steve Hamilton's fifth book in the series featuring former Detroit cop Alex McKnight, now 62 and living in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. As the story begins, Alex is trying to rebuild the cabin.

Blood is the Sky book. Steve Hamilton writes clean, full-blooded stories. It's impressive how he packs so much of an experience into relatively few words. I admit it had been a bit since I'd read the last Alex McKnight and I'd forgotten how much I like Hamilton's style. Light prose that packs a great punch. Blood is the Sky is more of the same.

Some kind of bird was making a racket, and it was doing it about three hours too early. I opened one eye and saw a dim ray of light coming through the window-whose window I could not say.

Some kind of bird was making a racket, and it was doing it about three hours too early ea where the hell I was. I sat up. There was a dull ache in my right hand. The bird started chirping again. What in goddamned hell, I thought. And then it came back to me. I was in a motel room-in Wawa, Ontario, of all places. Vinnie was face down on the other bed, still wearing his clothes from the night before

Hamilton won an Edgar and an Anthony in 1998 for A Cold Day in Paradise. This smart, brisk, twisty tale is even better.

I'm working my way through Steve Hamilton's books and just finished Blood Is the Sky. I enjoy reading and have been doing a lot of it because of chronic back problems and subsequent surgery. I try hard to stick to good, well-written books and Amazon helps me do this. The book descriptions and reviews are great.
Even with books I've enjoyed I invariably notice the occasional weak spot. Sometimes I wish I could turn off the critical part of my brain.
The point is that there weren't weak parts in this crime novel. Mr Hamilton is an exceptional writer. I began reading him because the protagonist lives in northern Michigan, an area familiar to me and one that I love. Its's fun to recognize roads, landmarks, towns and lakes that are a regular part of these stories.
I've become very fond of the regular characters in these books. McNight and LeBlanc are interesting characters and Hamilton has developed them well. There is violence but it's handled well without the gruesome details that some authors think is necessary to shock and horrify readers. Nor are these books smarmy (there's a word you don't hear much anymore). I'm from the 60s so I'm certainly not sheltered or a prude. But I have become weary of novels whose popularity depends on a lot of sex, what we used to call gratuitous sex. The Fifty Shades of Gray trilogy doesn't appeal to me. What I do like is good stories told well, believeable, likeable characters who I want to know more about, and solid well-crafted prose. In my opinion Hamilton provides his readers with just that. Selfishly speaking, I hope he continues to write books for us for a long time.

I'm really enjoying this series. In this book you don't really know who the good guys and the bad guys are until very near the end. And even then some of the bad guys aren't that bad and the other bad guys are really bad. It's very hard to put these books down until you get to the end. And then you want to read the next book immediately.

It's also fun to think about the settings. For example, I spent a day in Sudbury Ontario several years ago, and the book brought that place back.

I was a little disappointed with this novel by Steve Hamilton. I enjoyed the previous McKnight novels, but felt this one was onerous and fell short of the mark. I didn't like McKnight's friend character, nor the character's brother. I felt the action was really slow moving and took a while to build and get to the point. I had to stop mid-way through, I got bored with the plot line.

Mr Hamilton continues his trend of excellent mystery writing with this his fifth book. His forte is having the protagonist find people who have disappeared. In this book, it is a double helping. After helping one of his friends find his missing brother, the hero has to go back out and find his friend who also disappears. As usual, the writing is excellent, the story flows beautifully, the characters are developed and believable, and the whole story feels real. Each book develops his characters a little further. Read this series in order for maximum enjoyment.

My only complaint is like slapping at waves at the beach. When authors use the phrase "went missing" or "gone missing" instead of "disappeared" it makes my mind cringe. While the terms may be marginally acceptable in the Ebonics language, I think it is poor English.
I know, petty, petty.

It is a great book, it is a great series of books. Read them all and enjoy yourself.

The author's first two mysteries in this series were absolutely excellent. Since then there has been an inevitable by slight drop in quality. A reader could almost FEEL the first two novels, see the UP, the bars, hear the night sounds. While "Blood is the Sky" is superior to most mysteries in its atmosphere, it's a bit down. That may be because a good portion of it is set in Canada and seems a little vague sometimes, as if the writer were out of his territory.
The characters here are just fine. There are no cardboard cutouts to represent this or that person, a fault too often seen in fiction, in current mysteries especially.
The plot, well described by others, gets a bit too involved sometimes but is satisfying in the end. It would be easy to get a little lost sometimes.
All in all, this is a well-above-average crime novel. I do hope the author will return to the UP of Michigan as the sole setting for his next opus.

I have never read an Alex Knight novel I haven't liked. This is no exception. Coming from Michigan's Upper Peninsula myself, I love to hear about the geographically correct locations in the book. The story line is always interesting and Alex is a wonderfully likeable character.

Because I got hung up in BLOOD IS THE SKY.

A thriller, not my usual love, but this one avoids the things I hate in thrillers--no opening doors to the obvious serial killer here.

It's still a really fast-moving story

I read it in book form, but the Kindle sample looked wonderful.

Plot makes sense, low on romance, description of the country is good. I like the main characters.
A man's book... lots of mocho
