Super-Short Thumbs up for Steve Hamilton’s Die a Stranger

strangerMy life is currently very hectic, but I want to take two minutes to do a brief review that basically says, “Get Steve Hamilton’s Die a Stranger and read it!”

I discovered this author a few years ago, in the middle of his Alex McKnight series.  This gave me the opportunity to go back and read them in order.  They’ve always been well-written, meticulously plotted, and feature interesting and believable characters.  Die a Stranger is no exception; in fact, it’s a particularly compelling book.  One of my favorites in the series.  The last chapter is killer.

Hamilton has also written a number of other books – his standalone The Lock Artist received an MWA Edgar award for Best Novel in 2011; I thought it was creative and fun, but not my favorite.

I’m a little late to the Die a Stranger party… it came out in 2012.  The good news is that my delay means I don’t have long to wait until the next Alex McKnight book:  Let it Burn is scheduled for publication in July.
