Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A pair of PIs investigate the murder of one of their own in Koryta's sharp, fast-paced debut. Crusty old John Weston hires partners Lincoln Perry and Joe Pritchard to investigate both the death of his son, Wayne, in an incident the cops have ruled a suicide, and the disappearance of Wayne's wife and young daughter. Perry and Pritchard soon determine that Wayne was working for Jeremiah Hubbard, "Cleveland's answer to Donald Trump," in a series of surveillance jobs that brought him into contact with Russian mobsters. The case heats up considerably when the detectives locate Randy Hartwick, a Marine who served with Wayne in a special ops unit, only to have him shot right before their eyes. The cat-and-mouse game shifts to South Carolina, as Perry noses around a Myrtle Beach resort where Hartwick had worked security, only to stumble into Wayne's daughter and wife, who are staying at the same hotel. Julie Weston reveals that she has a videotape her husband made of the mobsters committing a murder, and soon they're both in danger when the Russians come looking for the tape. Although he occasionally tries to substitute jaded PI patter for genuine character development, 21-year-old Koryta delivers well-crafted scenes and genuinely surprising plot twists. This riveting detective novel should delight fans looking for new talent.

Review

"Quick pacing, sharp dialogue and very human characters--the good guys and the bad--make Michael Koryta's debut a fine and satisfying read."
--SJ Rozan, Edgar-winning author of Winter and Night

"Michael Koryta hits the ground running with this masterful debut. He's already so good, it's scary!"
-- Steve Hamilton, author of Ice Run

"An exciting debut that crackles with gunfire and terse, dead-on dialogue. This is noir, fresh and fine."
--William Kent Krueger, author of Blood Hollow

"...the 21-year-old author excels at building characters and story, making this one of the best mystery debuts this year."
--Library Journal

"This riveting detective novel should delight fans looking for new talent."
--Publishers Weekly

"A gracefully written, straight-ahead detective story with a welcome 11th-hour surprise."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Koryta is only 21, but he writes with the style of a seasoned vet...This is a writer to watch."
--Globe & Mail

"Michael Koryta makes an impressive debut."
--Midwest Book Review

"An incredibly fresh private-investigator novel...Koryta...emerges fully formed in his first effort."
--Chicago Tribune
