Book Description: When first published, A Cold Day in Paradise won both the Edgar and Shamus awards for Best First Novel, launching Steve Hamilton into the top ranks of todayâ€™s crime writers. Now, 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 near his heart, former Detroit cop Alex McKnight thought he had put the nightmare of his partnerâ€™s death and his own near-fatal injury behind him. After all, the man convicted of the crimes has been locked away for years. But in the small town of Paradise, Michigan, where McKnight has traded his badge for a cabin in the woods, a murderer with the same unmistakable trademarks appears to be back. McKnight canâ€™t understand who else would know the intimate details of the old murders. And it seems like itâ€™ll be a frozen day in Hell before McKnight can unravel truth from deception in a town thatâ€™s anything but Paradise.
