Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Arlen Wagner has seen it in men before--a trace of smoke in their eyes that promises imminent death. He is never wrong.
So when he awakens on a train one hot Florida night and sees death's telltale sign in the eyes of his fellow passengers, he abandons the train with nineteen-year-old Paul Brickhill. Soon the two men are stranded at the Cypress House--directly in the path of a hurricane. But there are much deadlier threats than the storm in this place, and Arlen's eerie gift warns that they'll never leave. From its chilling beginning to terrifying end, "The Cypress House "is a story of relentless suspense from the novelist Michael Connelly calls "one of the best of the best."

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-11-01)

Arlen Wagner sees smoke in the eyes of men fated to die. Abandoning a train of soon-to-be corpses with a young passenger, he travels through a Florida coastal county filled with corrupt officials, cowed people... and more signs of imminent death. Koryta masterfully weaves together disparate threads (organized crime; drifters; a haunted, beautiful woman; powerful men; an isolated boardinghouse; the great hurricane of 1935) in a story where every decision can 'cause your death-or help you escape it.

Verdict: Koryta's second attempt at supernatural suspense after So Cold the River offers a much richer experience with better-developed characters and more polished storytelling. Murder mystery and ghost story fans will want first crack at this new title. Highly recommended for all public libraries.
