Nice work!

My first face-to-face with Michael Koryta and I’m, to say the least, impressed. Take into consideration that “Tonight I said Goodbye” was written when the author was 20 years of age and published one year after, and you have to add a “very” before the word “impressed”. Don’t you think?

According to Michael Koryta he was blown away when he read “Gone Baby Gone” of Dennis Lehane. And who can blame him, that book is perhaps Dennis Lehane’s strongest work in the Kenzie/Gennaro series.

Other writers who have influenced him are R. Chandler, D. Hammett and M. Connelly, amongst others. That should tell you the goal Michael Koryta is aiming for.

― I’ve already ordered the next book in the series, “Sorrow's Anthem”
