Book Review: A Welcome Grave

A Welcome Grave by Michael Koryta

I've read Koryta's first two mystery novels, so I wanted to read his third foray into fiction,, having been impressed with the other novels in the Lincoln Perry series.

It doesn't hurt that Koryta is a) from Bloomington, Indiana and b) published his first novel when he was only 21 (bastard!). ;-)

Lincoln Perry finds himself the target of a murder investigation when the now-husband of his then-fiancee is found dead and tortured. What follows is a fast paced mystery with twists and turns galore, scenes in Brown County, Indiana to Cleveland, Ohio, compelling characters and a great shoot-em-up ending. I couldn't put this one down!

A great mystery novel, blurbed by some of the best in the business! Recommended!
