Nice reviews from two major papers last week!

“Koryta has created a vivid world that’s hard to shake for days after the book is finished. In ‘The Ridge,’ he has delivered a nuanced supernatural thriller worthy of the praise he’s received and that is surely yet to come.”


“Koryta doesn’t just craft an absorbingly creepy plot; he also makes effective use of setting and local history (as he did in So Cold the River and The Cypress House). His prose is observant and streamlined, and his characters are believable and complex — which helps make them unpredictable, in some cases shockingly so. Reading The Ridge is a fine way to chill down a hot summer night. But you’ll want to leave the lights on.”
