HOW IT HAPPENED Displays First-Rate Style

Bookreporter reviews HOW IT HAPPENED, saying: “Koryta is at the top of his game in HOW IT HAPPENED. His style remains first rate. There’s a description of a Port Hope ne’er-do-well about two-thirds of the way through the book that is only a paragraph long but makes the man in question jump and dance right off the page. That’s top-notch writing, and Koryta, as always, displays his considerable chops throughout the novel.”

Summer’s Best Page Turner

The Chicago Tribune says HOW IT HAPPENED “may be the summer’s best page-turner” adding: “The book casts its spell in revealing the whys and wherefores of the killings. Koryta, who has introduced supernatural elements into several novels, plays it straight here. But that doesn’t mean he fails to deliver his usual blend of dark psychology and pulse-pounding action.”
