Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Edgar-finalist Koryta spins a dark tale of broken dreams and second chances in his stunning fourth mystery to feature Cleveland, Ohio, PI Lincoln Perry (after 2008's A Welcome Grave). When Perry starts receiving letters from convicted murder Parker Harrison, he ignores them until the man shows up in his office. Twelve years earlier, the then recently paroled Harrison worked for Alexandra and Joshua Cantrell, a couple who ran a rehabilitation program for violent offenders. Then they disappeared, and Harrison wants Perry's help in tracking down Alexandra. Suspicious why Harrison waited so long, Perry discovers that Joshua's bones were recently unearthed in Pennsylvania. Ken Merriman, a Pittsburgh PI, soon arrives in Cleveland, asking Perry for help finding out who killed Joshua. That Alexandria's brother heads one of Cleveland's most notorious mob families complicates matters. Perry has to reconsider everything he thought he knew about right, wrong and everything in between. (Aug.)

Review

Praise for The Silent Hour

“Feisty plotting and the most memorable prose since Chandler. Koryta belongs on every genre reader’s bookshelf.” –Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Edgar-finalist Koryta spins a dark tale of broken dreams and second chances in his stunning fourth mystery.” –Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Koryta writes with maturity and grace, delivering clipped, crisp prose and crackling suspense." --Booklist

“The plot is intricately woven...As a protagonist, Perry is completely human, with knowledge, ability and insecurities. The twists in the story are so unexpected that the reader can only scratch his or her head in awe and wonderment.” –ILoveAMystery.com

“The inventive plot of The Silent Hour surprises right up to the end, and in Perry, Koryta has created a classic tough detective - a man with enough dark passages in his own past to recognize them in others, a bulldog who just can't let go until the ending of the story is told, no matter how close to hell it takes him.” –St. Petersburg Times (Florida)

“Koryta is definitely one of the best of the new generation of U.S. mystery writers.” –The Globe and Mail (Canada)

“The plot is intricately woven and moves forward slowly with intuitive leaps of faith. As a protagonist, Perry is completely human, with knowledge, ability and insecurities. The twists in the story are so unexpected that the reader can only scratch his or her head in awe and wonderment.” –Reviewer’s Bookwatch
