'The calendar said April but April in Paradise is still cold enough to hurt you ...' Alex McKnight is sipping a Canadian beer in the Glasgow Inn when Randy Wilkins, a left-handed pitcher from his baseball days in Detroit, turns up out of the blue. Finally he gets to the point. Randy's in love with a girl called Maria and wants to find her. The only problem being that he last saw her thirty years ago. It's a test of friendship to say the least and, at first, Alex can't think of anything worse. But loyalty gets the better of him and together Alex and Randy go back to Detroit where they played baseball together and where, as a police officer, Alex got shot. The bullet is still lodged in his chest. Their search for Maria leads them back to the past - a strange country which is unsavoury for Randy and painful for Alex. The Ojibwa Indian tribe call a driving wind from the north a hunting wind - in this case the hunt for Randy's lost love and Alex's lost life.

(The third book in the Alex McKnight series)

Hamilton has a gift for writing, but the plot of this book starts on thin ice and barely manages not to crack before the book is over. It will be interesting to see how he manages to develop the main character in the series in future books given where he lives and what he does (or doesn't do)
