Last Words

Still mourning the death of his wife, private investigator Mark Novak accepts a case that may be his undoing. On same day his wife died, the body of a teenage girl was pulled from the extensive and perilous cave system beneath Southern Indiana. Now the man who rescued the girl, who was believed to be her killer, begs Novak uncover what really happened. The only problem is in small-town Midwest, cold cases stay cold.

Garrison is much like any place in America, proud and fortified against outsiders. So Mark is forced to delve beneath the town’s secrets, and more frighteningly match wits with the man who knows the caverns better than anyone. A man who seemed to lose his mind. A man who seems to know Mark Novak all too well.

Praise for Michael Koryta
:
Outstanding in every way.
Lee Child
Michael Kortya is a master at maintaining suspense and a hell of a good writer.
Nelson DeMille
Reading Michael Koryta is like stepping into fast water. You don't know where the current will take you, only that it's strong and deep and likely to sweep you away. That's what the best fiction does, and Koryta does it better than just about anyone else.
John Hart
An inventive storyteller who's also a skilled stylist. Koryta's descriptions....possess an unearthly beauty.
Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
Koryta is a master of plot and pacing
Arizona Republic
[An] outstanding launch of a new series. Koryta punctuates the intense underground scenes of LAST WORDS with claustrophobia so realistic that it's palpable. He wrings every moment of excitement possible.
Associated Press
It is clear that a lot of thought has gone into this book - the claustrophobic setting, a strong likeable protagonist whom you want to succeed, and a solid mystery that keeps you guessing right up to the end. This is the best thriller I have read since Michael Connelly's The Scarecrow.
