Tuesday two-fer

Lincoln Perry is back for the fourth installment in Michael Koryta's critically acclaimed series. THE SILENT HOUR is available today and has already made The LA Times' list of the best summer reads and The Mystery Bookshelf's top summer thrillers.

"Feisty plotting and the most memorable prose since Chandler. Koryta (A Welcome Grave, 2007, etc.) belongs on every genre reader's bookshelf." - Kirkus *starred review*

"The Silent Hour is a book that grabs the reader’s attention and doesn’t let go...A most exciting 5-star mystery." - Armchair Interviews

Michael's award-winning standalone, ENVY THE NIGHT, is also out in paperback today.

Marilyn Stasio of The New York Times Book Review said "Michael Koryta earns a seat at the high table of neo-noir crime writers by putting a fresh spin on the fathers-and-sons narrative so many of his peers feel compelled to write over and over again. As good as he is at depicting violence, Koryta puts even more muscle into scenes of killers tracking one another in the great outdoors – a talent that doesn’t get enough of a workout in the novels featuring his P.I. Lincoln Perry but is demonstrated here with brutal artistry."
