The Silent Hour – Michael Koryta

Nov 25

I discovered Michael Koryta while making my annual trek to th St. Petersburg Times Festival of Reading at the USF St. Pete campus.    I was just finishing listening to another (super depressing) author when Mr. Koryta came in and cracked a joke.  So I decided to stay and listen to what he had to say.  The author was very entertaining.  I immediately got sucked into the story about a private detective, a convicted felon, and a unique approach to the rehabilitation of criminals.  The story is interesting, and the protagonist, Lincoln Perry is a very likable and relatable guy.  Mr.  Koryta’s acerbic wit is prevalent throughout the tale.  If you are looking for a good murder mystery, I highly recommend this book.  I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.  Thank you, book fair!!

  1. K-I am in the search of many new books to read due to the fact I am almost done with school! So I love that you are posting your reviews! I actually am writing my senior paper on the reentry of inmates into the community, and the rehabilitation practices, so this book sounds interesting to me!!
