Library Journal Review

When former private investigator Markus Novak, introduced in Last Words, learns that Garland Webb, the man who confessed to murdering his wife, was released from prison, his new purpose in life is to find and kill Webb. He starts in the small Florida town where his wife died; strange events and a violent encounter there lead him to Montana. Meanwhile, Webb, now in the employ of a mysterious man named Eli Pate, has kidnapped the wife of a high-voltage line worker so that her husband, Jay, will be compelled to help complete Pate's scheme of destroying Montana's electrical grid. Markus finds much more than he expects upon arrival in Big Sky country, and danger is more palpable than ever. Following his traditional format of short, fast-paced chapters, a compelling narrative, relatable characters, and action scenes that play out like a blockbuster film, Koryta has written his best book to date. VERDICT Highly -recommended for fans of the author and readers of Dan Brown and Dennis Lehane. [See Prepub Alert, 2/29/16.]-Jason L. -Steagall, Gateway Technical Coll.
