Once, Lincoln Perry and Ed Gradduk were friends. Then, Perry became a cop, Gradduk turned dangerous, and their friendship imploded. Now, Gradduk is dead. And Perry wants to use his PI license to prove that whatever else his childhood friend might have been, he wasn't a murderer. For the police, this case is over. The woman Gradduk is alleged to have killed can't tell her side of the story, and the building she entered with him has burned to the ground. But Perry is making connections to a wave of arson that struck Cleveland seventeen years ago - fires that lit up the dark secrets of two families, a local powerbroker, and at least one crooked cop. Now Perry and his partner can see ties between the past and present, between innocents and criminals - and sirens that keep playing...

Michael Koryta is for real!

”Sorrow’s Anthem” is the author’s second novel and it’s definitely a step up for him. I’m really glad I found this writer, he brings the kind of PI Noir feeling Dennis Lehane used to bring with the Kenzie/Gennaro series.

Lincoln Perry, main character of this series, could easily be Patrick Kenzie’s cousin, but believe when I said that it isn’t just a rip-off, Michael Koryta possesses his own voice and seems clever enough to write a good quality Crime Fiction Mystery.

Next up is “A Welcome Grave”.
