Koryta has become one of my favorite authors, and this thriller may not end up being my favorite, but it's still a fantastic, page-turning novel that kept me desperate to read more. His storytelling and the wonderfully believable characters he creates stand out above many of the suspense novels I pick up--they just have such depth, each story feels more real than not, as if we're seeing into a world rather than being told a short tale of one.

Absolutely recommended.

A worthy addition to the thriller genre. The setting on an isolated island in Maine evokes a mysterious and claustrophobic mood. The place has a history of corrupt behavior by local fisherman who have had their livelihoods threatened by fishing regulations. The mystery grows out of a series of killings of politicians on a yacht. The main characters are complex and generally well-realized. However, a few were a little cartoonish (i.e., a corrupt cop, and a brutal alcoholic father). Koryta keeps the tension high and the pages turning, but a few of his outcomes seem a little too predictable.… (mer)

I liked 90% of this but I think it grew unfocused and lost its edge towards the very end.

This reminded me very much of The Dry so if you liked that, I think you will like this too.

The ad I saw says: "Friday Night Lights meets In Cold Blood"

What could that mean? I must find out!
