If She Wakes by Michael Koryta

If She Wakes is Michael Koryta‘s most recent novel. (2019)

Some feel it’s his best.

Michael Connelly calls Koryta the genre’s “best of the best“.

Certainly the plot is fascinating:

Tara Beckley is in a coma. Her brain is working perfectly, but she cannot move.  She has locked-in syndrome.

Tara knows that a visiting professor has been murdered, but can’t tell anyone.  Her family is thinking of pulling the plug.

Abby Kaplan, an insurance investigator and former professional driver, is suspicious about the supposed accident

Meanwhile, two assassins have been dispatched to clean up the mess and recover a secret device. 

I did like the book and plan to read more Koryta.  Best character, for me, was Dax — son of one of my favourite characters from “Those who wish me dead”.
