“Absolutely breathtaking, nail-biting, and edge-of-your-seat.  Michael Koryta is a master at maintaining suspense and a hell of a good writer.  Those Who Wish Me Dead is one of the best chase-and-escape novels you’ll read this year – or any other year.  The pace never lets up.”

Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Early responses to THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD

Some remarkably generous words from some remarkably talented writers. 

"Wow!  An absolutely first-rate novel.  More than just an edge-of-your-seat, adrenaline-fueled story of life and death and survival in the Montana wilderness.  "Those Who Wish Me Dead" is what every reader hopes for each time they start a book.  A smart, surprising, and emotionally engaging experience that simply does not let up. Ever!"
Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author of RULES OF BETRAYAL

"Michael Koryta is that rare author who is at once a compelling storyteller and a fantastic writer.  From the first sentence of THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD, you'll be under his spell.  His characters are living, breathing people you'll care about; his setting is a place you'll visit and stay - long after you've decided to leave because you're scared. You can't leave; you're trapped.  There are too many nerve-jangling, beautifully written, razor-sharp moments and you won't want to miss a single one. This is an absolute sizzler."
Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of IN THE BLOOD

"This book captured me. Here are two bad guys so bad, so well drawn, that I wanted to avert my eyes – these guys are powerfully creepy and horribly effective – but I didn’t want to miss a beat of this sharp thriller. This is a smart big book with what are called twists and turns, but which are really terrific surprises in every deepening layer. Young Jace’s journey to survive is a gripping rush.  I know not to run in the woods but I wanted to tell him:  run, woods or not, just run!"
Ron Carlson, award-winning author of FIVE SKIES and THE SIGNAL
