Alex McKnight #4 by Steve Hamilton
Published in: 2003
In North of Nowhere, Alex McKnight has turned into a bit of a recluse. He’s been spending a lot of time by himself and it has been noticed by his friend Jackie, who runs the local Glasglow Inn. Instead of letting Alex continue down this path he gives him an ultimatum: Get on a plane to go live in the Yukon territory where Alex would then get the chance to go whole years without seeing anyone – or attend a local poker game and be social. Alex eventually gets the point of what Jackie is trying to say and agrees to go to the poker game.
