Review:

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR MICHAEL KORYTA

The Silent Hour

"Koryta spins a dark tale of broken dreams and second chances in his stunning fourth mystery to feature PI Lincoln Perry."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The inventive plot 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

"Feisty plotting and the most memorable prose since Chandler. Koryta belongs on every genre reader's bookshelf."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

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

"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."--Crimespree magazine

From the Back Cover:

Stunning."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Whisper Ridge is a multimillion-dollar piece of architectural majesty that once housed a unique program for paroled murderers. The program never got off the ground, however, despite the passion of Alexandra Cantrell, daughter of a notorious Mafia don, and her husband, Joshua. Twelve years later, the uninhabited house is in ruins. It remains a strange monument to dangerous secrets...until Joshua's bones are found buried deep in the forest.

"The inventive plot of The Silent Hour surprises right up to the end."--St. Petersburg Times

Private investigator Lincoln Perry isn't thrilled about having to unearth this enduring mystery--one that continues to capture the media's attention. His new client is no picnic either: Parker Harrison served fifteen years for murder but claims Alexandra Cantrell's intervention saved his life. Following a trail that leads straight to the heart of Cleveland's organized crime scene, Perry finds himself immersed in a case that challenges his abilities as a detective and his commitment to that calling. Now he's glancing over his shoulder at every turn--and pushing the bounds of safety even as he backs away...

"Michael Koryta is one of the best of the best...his Lincoln Perry is going to be around for a long, long time."--Michael Connelly

Book Description Minotaur Books,US, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. Fresh off the critical acclaim of his Los Angeles Times Book Prize-nominated Envy the Night, Michael Koryta returns with a blistering new installment in the Lincoln Perry series: The Silent Hour.Whisper RidgeHome to DreamsOctober 2, 1992--April 12, 1996So reads the strange epitaph carved beside the door of the home called Whisper Ridge, a multi-million-dollar piece of architectural majesty that once housed the beginnings of a unique program for paroled murderers. The program never got off the ground, however, despite how passionate a woman named Alexandra Cantrell, daughter of a notorious Mafia don, and her husband, Joshua, had been about it. Still uninhabited twelve years later, the house remains as a strange monument to dangerous secrets, falling into ruin as the forest grows up around it.While the couple's abrupt exit was unusual, it was also not regarded as suspicious--until the bones of Alexandra's husband are found buried in the woods.Private investigator Lincoln Perry isn't thrilled about the situation, or his client: Parker Harrison served fifteen years for murder but claims Alexandra's intervention saved his life. Now he wants to find her--and he's not the only one.What seems at first like the simplest of jobs proves to be an undertaking that will challenge both Perry's abilities as a detective and his commitment to that calling. With a new partner to train and a case that leads straight to the heart of the Cleveland organized crime scene, Perry finds himself glancing over his shoulder at every turn, pushing the bounds of safety even as he backs away.Once again Michael Koryta has crafted an intricate, lightning-paced thriller, ratcheting up the tension as he explores just how dangerous the offer of a second chance can be. The latest installment in the Lincoln Perry series, which the Chicago Tribune calls "addictively readable," marks another step forward in his incredible career. Seller Inventory # BTE9780312389574
