Product description


Praise for Dead Man Running

"Brilliant...The plot develops in multiple unexpected directions, and its logical convolutions are matched by Hamilton's deepening portrayal of his fully realized lead."--Publishers Weekly

"Alex McKnight's been put through the ringer before, but never quite like this....Steve Hamilton rakes his hero over the coals, taking him to hell and back as he faces off with a man so evil that he'd scare the hell out of the devil himself. Full of twists and turns, Hamilton's latest McKnight novel is raw, dark, and absolutely relentless....Dead Man Running proves that Steve Hamilton is one of the best crime writers on the planet, and his latest showing will leave readers begging for more."--The Real Book Spy

"Hamilton's long-awaited reboot of the McKnight series is a streamlined, gut-wrenching thriller."--Booklist

Praise for Steve Hamilton and the Alex McKnight series

"Whatever he writes, I'll read. Steve Hamilton's that good."--Lee Child

"Steve Hamilton writes the kind of stories that manly men and tough-minded women can't resist."--The New York Times

"I'm often asked to recommend a detective series readers might have missed. This is it."--Harlan Coben

"Hamilton's compelling, vigorous prose doesn't allow the option of taking a break."--Los Angeles Times

"Steve Hamilton writes tough, passionate novels with a strong emphasis on heart and humanity. This is crime writing at its very best."--George Pelecanos
