Die a stranger
An engaging mystery/thriller set in Michigan as Hamilton's books usually are. It's part of the Alex McKnight series, but it seems to me it can stand on its own. Alex is a wounded former Detroit cop who lives in the Upper Peninsula, and, the story aside, it's fun reading about Michigan's nooks and crannies. When a plane lands at a remote airport (Newberry, MI) and botched drug deals go down, five bodies are left behind. At the same time, Alex's good friend Vinnie, an Ojibway Indian, goes missing. As usual, Alex bends the rules trying to find out what happened to his friend hoping it is not related to the dead bodies.
