Set amidst the lakes and woods of Northern Michigan, MISERY BAY is an icily gripping thriller of murder, madness and revenge.
A teenage boy is found hanging from a tree on a remote shore of Lake Superior in the dead of winter. There's no evidence of foul play. But then something about the scene by the freezing lake starts nagging at Alex McKnight's cop-brain, and when the cop who caught the case mentions in passing another tragic teenage suicide - again involving the son of a cop - Alex finds that he's become involved in a full-blown mystery. As what seems like a tragic suicide turns out to be the first of a bizarre series of killings, as a dark family history is gradually uncovered and the hunt for a very unusual killer begins...
Steve Hamilton has crafted a thriller with a strong sense of location, solid characters and the kind of logical structure that keeps you turning the pages. (Christopher Fowler FINANCIAL TIMES)"The novel's assured pacing and odd-couple double act would be enough by themselves to make this a first-rate thriller, but Misery Bay's biggest asset is Hamilton's portrayal of the Great Lakes region and its prickly, stoical inhabitants, which gives it the feel of a Scandinavian crime novel." (John Dugdale SUNDAY TIMES)
