Last Words

Cave. There are several things I think Michael Koryta does so well in his novel, Last Words, to appeal to those readers who love suspense. Part of the novel takes place in a cavern in Indiana, and it is that place, what it means to several characters, and what happened in the past and the present, that provides the context for the plot, and Koryta describes that place to chilling effect. Second, the characters are complicated, interesting, and often troubled by life changing events. Finally, by use of a hypnotist as a key character, Koryta allows the effect of trance to confuse what is real and what may be imagined. The suspense involves a search for truth, and in a cave called Trapdoor, what could possibly go wrong? Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Last Words from
