BOOK REVIEW: A STOLEN SEASON
It is unusually cold for the Fourth of July in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Alex McKnight decided he needed some air after listening to his friend's band for about an hour. It was foggy and cold. Alex heard a loud boom. At first, he didn't know what was happening until he realized a boat going at full speed had run into the old railroad pilings. Alex helped to rescue the men. The driver was unconscious and the other two were very dazed. They were taken away by ambulance.
Alex figured this was the last he would see of the three men but he didn't realize what was about to happen. The men returned and accused Alex of taking a black box that was in the boat. They said it was used to keep valuables such as their wallet, etc.
What are these men really up to? What was in the black box?
To make matters worse, Alex is separated from his girlfriend, Natalie, who has returned to her job and is now working undercover in Canada. Alex and Natalie have much in common - both had partners die in the line of duty.
What does Alex discover as he begins his investigation into what these three men are doing? How does Natalie's undercover work tie in with these men also?
Steven Hamilton's Alex McKnight books keep getting better with each new one that is published. He does an excellent job of weaving the two storylines together - one about what is going on with Alex and the other dealing with Natalie's work until the two finally tie together to complete the story. This one is a real page-turner. The author has enough twists in the story to keep you guessing throughout the book. This book is highly recommended.
