Author Steve Hamilton shares another great yarn about Alex McKnight and his life as a near hermit in Paradise, a small town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Paradise is located somewhere north of nowhere, according to one of Alex's cronies. As McKnight turns 49, he withdraws into a deep funk. His best friend, Jackie, goads him into a poker game with men he barely knows. Masked robbers break up the game, holding the players at gunpoint while they loot a secret stash within the house. Events go downhill from there, spiraling into a complex dilemma of deceit and greed. Reader Nick Sullivan presents a strong interpretation of these bizarre events. His smooth delivery and effective characterizations provide listeners with the feeling that Alex is truly telling his own story. T.J.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
