Last Words by Michael Koryta

Update – Later I tried the sequel, Rise the Dark, but couldn’t finish.

Michael Koryta is a prize winning American author of contemporary crime and supernatural fiction.

This is his first book that I’ve read. It was recommend by many of my favourite authors.

That said, this one is only OK.

Markus Novak, the lead character, is neither compelling nor all that interesting.

The plot is excellent, however. And surprising.

Still mourning the death of his wife, private investigator Mark Novak accepts a case that may be his undoing. On the 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 to uncover what really happened.
