Happy Fourth Of July...enjoy some links

As you ease back into the swing of things after the holiday, you probably want to kill some time by reading about THE RIDGE. Here are some nice people who have said nice things. If you want to see bad things, go find them yourself. We don't encourage that sort of behavior here.

Also, an interview with Michael and Linda Wertheimer of NPR's Weekend Edition will air soon. More details when we have them!

Huffington Post: "Michael Koryta is a name that is growing in stature with each new novel he releases. THE RIDGE indicates he will keep getting better and better. This is a chilling story that will have you burning the midnight oil and wishing you had a lighthouse to ward off any dark presence around you."

The New Yorker: "...if you know Koryta’s splendid style, you know he’s in the right place. “The Ridge” is a classically good mystery that’s also regionally fascinating: its other powerpoint location is a woodland lighthouse in eastern Kentucky, where a local weirdo is found dead one day by an almost equally weird reporter, who then teams with a troubled detective to uncover much greater, darker strangeness."

Jen's Book Thoughts Review: "THE RIDGE is the work of an exceptionally talented story teller coming into his own. The richness of the characters, the depth of the symbolism, the strength of the atmosphere all combine to suck the reader into Koryta's world. You fall down his rabbit hole and land in a world you logically know doesn't exist, but the reality of what you experience convinces you otherwise."
