Reviews

Michael Koryta is one of our new dynamos in the world of books . . . [he's] becoming a wonder we'll appreciate for a long time. * Daniel Woodrell * On my must-read list. * Dean Koontz * [Koryta] possesses an unusual gift - the ability to write a sure-fire bestseller. * News of the World * Michael Koryta is one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction. * Mail on Sunday * A WELCOME GRAVE is much more than a well-written and suspenseful mystery. It is a fictional snapshot depicting how law enforcement and legal machines can be manipulated to favor the rich and powerful at the expense of the poor and powerless - and the innocent. Michael Koryta has crafted an exciting novel with carefully rendered characters, even secondary ones, who will remain with the reader long after turning the last page. * bookreporter.com * One of the best P.I.-against-the-world books I've read in a long, long time. Koryta's dialogue remains vivid and his characters sharp as a diamond drill bit. * Crimespree Magazine * The appeal of Koryta's addictively readable narrative comes from his remarkably realistic portrayal of not only individuals but circumstances as well. There are no stereotypical characters, no predictable plot lines; like life, nothing is pure black or white but varying shades of gray. * Chicago Tribune * Stylish . . . well-observed. * New York Times * [A] top-notch thriller. * Booklist * No one in the genre writes better. * Kirkus Review * Koryta is one of the best of the best * Michael Connelly * A nuanced, mature novel that proves both the depth of Koryta's talent and the vitality of the PI genre. * Laura Lippman * Koryta stakes a claim as one of today's preeminent crafters of contemporary hard-boiled mysteries. * Publishers Weekly *
