On a cold, miserable night in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, a night that wouldn't feel so unusual if it wasn't the Fourth of July, an antique wooden boat runs full-speed into a line of old railroad pilings in the shallow waters of Waishkey Bay. When Alex McKnight helps rescue the passengers, he finds three men. The driver is out cold, the other two are dazed but conscious. When they're all finally back on dry land and sent away in an ambulance, Alex figures he'll never see them again. He couldn't be more wrong. It's not enough that Natalie Reynaud, the woman who has become the center of his life, is five hundred miles away, working a dangerous undercover operation in Toronto. Now Alex has even more problems when the men from the boat get tangled up with his best friend, Vinnie. It's all Alex can do to keep Vinnie from killing them or being killed by them. With Vinnie in danger on one side of the border, and Natalie in just as much danger on the other, what comes next will be the absolute darkest hour of Alex's life, beyond anything he's ever faced before.… (mais)

A Stolen Season starts out on two fronts. On the one end, Alex McKnight unintentionally gets involved with some unsavory characters when he and his friend Leon save three guys in a boating accident from drowning. It later turns out that the guys are mixed up in some illegal drug trafficking between the United States and Canada. Because something of value was lost during the accident, the guys think that either Alex, or one of his friends, have it. They start putting the pressure on Alex, and he immediately begins to hit back, not realizing the caliber of people that he's dealing with and how dangerous they are. Alex will underestimate the guys and ultimately find himself standing on a bluff with a handgun pointed at his face, waiting to die. On the second front, Alex's girlfriend, Natalie Reynaud, has moved to Toronto to do undercover work for the police department there. Her job is to get close to the girlfriend of one of the most terrifying men that she's ever met and to hopefully break up a ring of gun smugglers. Something eventually happens that brings the two fronts together, driving Alex McKnight to the edge of despair at the tragedy that has erupted in his life.

Steve Hamilton has created a series that's every bit as good as anything James Lee Burke or Robert Parker has written. Once you get started on one of the "Alex McKnight" books, you'll want to read them all. ( )

This is my favorite series and I have looked forward to each one in the series. This time I anticipated some of the action. I recommend this series to everyone and I usually tell them that it isn't important to read them in order but this book is the first one that I would say that it would be better if they read the last book or two instead of jumping in here.

Read 6/8/11. This is the 7th book in the series, the most current, with an 8th book, Misery Bay, out yesterday; MB is the first new book in the series in almost 5 years, and it seems that the author may have taken a break at the right moment. I have skipped two, and while I have enjoyed the series to this point, I may not continue, and I am unlikely to read the two I've skipped. (I've not read The Lock Artist yet, an Edgar winner, a stand alone novel, and I look forward to it.) With this book I felt I was reading too much of the same thing, and I didn't get too excited about the story. Deals with running weapons across the border, some bad guys from Detroit, another ultra powerful bad guy from Canada who is dispatched rather conveniently I thought given what a super dude he was supposed to be. And Alex loses a close friend, and mourns in a manner that I thought was uncharacteristic. So I didn't think that this was a super book from the author, but maybe I've just grown tired of the series.

Great book

A new take on the hardboiled detective genera. Somehow although the plot is typical, but nicely updated, I was left with a rather positive take on what might seem to be rather hackneyed story line. ( )
