“Koryta keeps the suspense high throughout.”―Publisher’s Weekly

“Koryta has never been better than with this knuckle-biting thriller.”―Kirkus

“Instantly gripping, with realistic action, a breath-snatching twist, and a few untied ends that hopefully signal a sequel.”―Booklist



The NYT Got Goosebumps

Here’s a taste of the New York Times’ review of HOW IT HAPPENED: “Where are the bodies? That’s the pertinent question posed by Michael Koryta in his cool and cunning novel HOW IT HAPPENED, which is loosely based, he has said, on a murder he covered as a young reporter in Indiana. Perhaps because of the personal angle – or just because Koryta is such a skilled writer – the story feels like the real deal…gives me goose bumps, a credit to Koryta’s descriptive powers.”
