Rise the Dark by Michael Koryta
Mark Novak’s greatest mystery may be his own…
“I was asleep when my wife died,” Private Investigator Mark Novak tells us. His relentlessness as an investigator has been his professional calling card and curse, but he couldn’t bear to ever investigate what happened to his wife two years before–until now.
When he returns to the country road outside Cassadega, Florida, where his wife was shot, he uncovers disturbing leads that show how her murder might be connected to Novak’s own troubled youth in Montana.
Back in the mining towns of Montana he thought he’d left behind forever, he’ll face an adversary more frightening than he’s ever known, and a secret that has wended its way through his entire life: from the caverns beneath Indiana to the abandoned streets of a southern gothic town to the darkest corners of the Northwest.
ECHOES is mystery about evil and heroism, and what happens when the two are inextricably and tragically linked.
