ACCLAIM FOR SO COLD THE RIVER:
"This book builds like a summer storm. Beautiful to watch until it shakes the house and knocks out the lights, leaving you alone in the dark. Another masterful work from Michael Koryta, SO COLD THE RIVER
is guaranteed to put the cold finger down your spine."—Michael Connelly
"Koryta has ventured into genre-bending, successfully melding thriller elements to a horror story that recalls Stephen King."
"An icy, terrifying winner. So Cold the River puts an October chill in your blood by the end of the first chapter. It's not much longer before you've turned on all the lights and rechecked all the window locks. Few novelists warrant mention alongside Stephen King or Peter Straub. Michael Koryta, however, earns comparison to both."—Dennis Lehane, -
"Kortya's SO COLD THE RIVER is an example of the good-writing equals good-reading equation that makes fright-inducing fiction worthy of our time, attention, and real enjoyment."
, author of The Terror and Drood
"A cataclysmic finale will put readers in mind of some of the best recent works of supernatural horror, among which this book ranks."
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"So Cold the River is a great story, but what held me was the lean, clean prose and the sharp presentation of scenes and dialogue. Michael Koryta is a good story teller and a wonderful stylist."—Joe R. Lansdale, -
"Michael Koryta is a gifted storyteller. His writing reminded me of the great Ruth Rendell--eerie, suspenseful, and pleasantly wicked. If you're looking for a dose of Midwestern Gothic at its best, SO COLD THE RIVER will be just the thing for you."
—Scott Smith, author of A Simple Plan and The Ruins
"A gripping chiller that will keep them guessing - and looking under the covers - until the last page..."
"An edgy, seat-of-your-pants thriller with a supernatural edge..."
"A superior specimen...beautiful and resplendent."
