A gamechanger. Nick Mason is one of the best main characters I’ve read in years. An intense, moving, absolutely relentless book — it will grab you from the first line and never let go.
– Harlan Coben

The return of Alex McKnight:
Dead Man Running arrives August 21, 2018

After five years… he’s back. 

Alex McKnight, the hero of Steve Hamilton’s bestselling, Edgar Award-winning series, returns in a brutal, high-stakes thriller, facing the most dangerous enemy he’s ever encountered.

“This is one helluva comeback. It’s the Skyfall of the series – the deepest, darkest, most complex book in the award-winning, million-plus-selling series. Alex McKnight gets stripped to the bone.”
–Don Winslow
