Michael Koryta's The Ridge

The Ridge
Koryta, Michael. Jun 2011. 412 p. Little, Brown, hardcover, $24.99. (9780316053662).
“Koryta, who’s been a newspaper reporter and a private investigator, gets deep inside the minds of his protagonists, and the story is intriguing and frequently spooky. It’s a good book, effectively blending crime and horror…this one will definitely cross  over to fans of both genres.  HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Koryta’s crime-horror genre-benders, beginning with So Cold the River (2010), have secured the author of the Lincoln Perry PI novels a new and larger audience. Expect the trend to continue here.” -- Booklist
