--Tim Johnston, NYT Bestselling author of Descent and The Current
"Israel Pike is a deep, emotionally flawed character who shines enormously on the page, and Lyman Rankin runs with him stride for stride. Michael Koryta is an exceptionally gifted storyteller. Every scene sparkles, from the superlative action scenes to the intimate human threads woven throughout. Take my advice: turn these pages. They will not disappoint."--David Baldacci, bestselling author of Long Shadows
"Michael Koryta is one of those writers who has brought Faulknerian prose to the crime novel."--James Lee Burke, bestselling author of Every Cloak Rolled in Blood and The Neon Rain
"Elegantly written, stark and gorgeous. Michael Koryta is a treasure, and his skillful wisdom with character and setting and emotion are unmatched. An Honest Man will captivate you from page one. It is wry and knowing, ridiculously immersive, and utterly heartbreaking. It's a story that feels not only truly told, but actually true...aching with the bitterness of reality, and the danger that comes not only from greed, but also from love. I will admit, Michael Koryta makes me cry every time. This is a terrific book by a supremely gifted storyteller."--Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today bestselling and award-winning author
"As in his other novels, Koryta's characters evoke feelings of sympathy, anger, and joy. Readers will stay engaged until the end." --Library Journal
"This is Koryta's best book. It grabbed me hard and wouldn't let go. A wonderful suspense novel with good writing and lots of texture. It feels like it came straight from the heart."--Stephen King
"Michael Koryta's An Honest Man is a hatchet waiting for you in a dark room. This thing is sharp, gloomy, nuanced, violent, strangely elegant, and it smells like salt and blood. From crackling dialogue to complex characters, Koryta delivers everything. As a reader, I love his work. As a writer, I hate how easy he makes it look. Koryta is too damn good."--Gabino Iglesias, author of the Edgar and Stoker Award-nominated The Devil Takes You Home
"One of crime fiction's go-to writers."--Kirkus Reviews
"Superb . . . This is top-tier suspense."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Koryta is a force to be reckoned with in modern suspense, and An Honest Man is one of his finest achievements to date."
