Product description


How it Happened is precise and thrilling with an offbeat charm. Koryta in his finest moments is reminiscent of Stephen King . . . Terrific * Metro * Who needs jihadis when we've got our own homegrown terrorists? With a wild premise and fascinating background, Rise the Dark is a fast, gripping, satisfying thriller. For those who don't know yet, Michael Koryta is building a hell of a shelf * New York Times * Rise the Dark is -- excuse the pun -- electrifying. Koryta delivers nonstop action in an all-too-plausible scenario, with that hint of the uncanny that's become his trademark. The ending will have readers pounding his door for more -- Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Guilty Minds and Suspicion A superb thriller literally humming and buzzing with power and tension, given depth and resonance by Koryta's fascination with pitting lone human emotion against a vast and forbidding landscape -- Lee Child PRAISE FOR RISE THE DARK * - * This gripping and absorbing story about a protagonist coming to terms with his conflicted past, a lost love, and a crime determined not to be solved, could only be penned by Michael Koryta, whose sense of place, and insight into the human spirit, are unsurpassed. -- Sandra Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author of SEEING RED Michael Koryta is one hell of a writer, and HOW IT HAPPENED is one hell of a murder mystery. It's a tribute to Koryta's craftsmanship and skill that the reader knows who done it in the first chapter, but can't put the book down until the last layer of the onion is peeled away to reveal the truth at the core of this gripping tale.... A remarkable achievement that rises high above the genre. -- Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE CUBAN AFFAIR
