Reviews

Michael Koryta's latest novel skillfully melds a thrilling adventure story set against the Montana wilderness with a poignant coming-of-age story. THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD moves at a brisk pace as Koryta weaves in themes of redemption, survival and grief to illustrate how ethical choices can reverberate . . . Koryta's vivid Montana landscape scenes pulsate with the smells and sounds of the great outdoors. His three-dimensional characters realistically explore the choices they are forced to make as the author keeps the plot twisting with believable turns. * Associated Press * Having joined the ranks of the very best thriller writers with his small-town masterpiece, THE PROPHET (2012), Koryta matches that effort with a book of sometimes-unbearable tension . . . this novel is brilliantly orchestrated. Also crucial to its success is Koryta's mastery of the beautiful but threatening setting, including a mountain fire's ability to electrify the ground, radiate a lethal force field-and create otherworldly light shows. Summer reading doesn't get better than this. * Kirkus (starred review) * [A] seamless blend of western-wilderness thriller and mainstream crime fiction, with a prickly dab of horror. * Booklist Starred Review * Michael Koryta isn't just one of the finest authors working in the crime genre today. He's simply one of today's finest authors, period. His stories are taut, compelling, and beautifully rendered. His understanding of human nature - the good, the evil, and all the gray between - is masterful. THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD is Koryta at his best. * William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author of Ordinary Grace * This book captured me. Here are two bad guys so bad, so well drawn, that I wanted to avert my eyes - but I didn't want to miss a beat of this sharp thriller. This is a smart big book with what are called twists and turns, but which are really terrific surprises in every deepening layer. Young Jace's journey to survive is a gripping rush. I know not to run in the woods but I wanted to tell him: run, woods or not, just run! * Ron Carlson, author of THE SIGNAL * Wow! An absolutely first rate novel. More than just an edge-of-your-seat, adrenaline-fueled story of life and death and survival in the Montana wilderness. THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD is what every reader hopes for each time they start a book. A smart, surprising, and emotionally engaging experience that simply does not let up. Ever! * Christopher Reich, bestselling author of RULES OF DECEPTION * Michael Koryta is that rare author who is at once a compelling story teller and a fantastic writer. From the first sentence of THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD, you'll be under his spell. His characters are living, breathing people you'll care about; his setting is a place you'll visit and stay - long after you've decided to leave because you're scared. You can't leave; you're trapped. There are too many nerve-jangling, beautifully written, razor sharp moments and you won't want to miss a single one. This is an absolute sizzler. * Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of IN THE BLOOD * Michael Koryta's THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD is an absolutely thrilling read. I read most of it with my breath held, occasionally exhaling to ask myself, 'What will happen next?' I highly recommend it. * Kevin Powers * Absolutely breathtaking, nail-biting, and edge-of-your-seat. Michael Koryta is a master at maintaining suspense and a hell of a good writer. THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD is one of the best chase-and-escape novels you'll read this year - or any other year. The pace never lets up. * Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author of THE QUEST * Reading Michael Koryta is like stepping into fast water. You don't where the current will take you, only that it's strong and deep and likely to sweep you away. That's what the best fiction does, and Koryta does it better than just about anyone else. * John Hart, New York Times bestselling author of IRON HOUSE and THE LAST CHILD * THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD is beautifully written, perfectly paced, expertly structured, and simply unputdownable. Koryta is an absolute master. * Deon Meyer * Warning: Michael Koryta's wonderful, riveting, and harrowing THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD may just move you to tears. Enjoy at your own risk. * Harlan Coben * [Koryta] possesses an unusual gift - the ability to write a sure-fire bestseller * News of the World * Outstanding in every way, and a guaranteed thriller-of-the-year. Stephen King would be proud of the set up, Cormac McCarthy would be proud of the writing, and I would be proud of the action. Don't you dare miss it. * Lee Child * Koryta is a writer to watch * Spectator * [A] rising literary star * Wall Street Journal * One of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction * Mail on Sunday * One of the best of the best -- Michael Connelly Koryta is a master -- Nelson DeMille
