Thrillers - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Thriller is a genre of fiction that is peaking in popularity and in the number and quality of titles available. In thrillers‚ a hero — sometimes reluctant — must find the resources to face down villainy against extraordinary odds!



A New York Times Bestselling Author

Rise the dark: the last words Lauren Novak wrote before she was murdered in a Florida village. Her husband, investigator Markus Novak, never learned their meaning. Now the man he blames is out of prison. In Montana, after an act of vandalism turns the lights off, Sabrina Baldwin is abducted by the man Novak believes killed his wife. And drawing them all together is a messianic villain.


Customer Reviews

“[With] a compelling narrative, relatable characters, and action scenes that play out like a blockbuster film, Koryta has written his best book to date. Highly recommended for fans of the author and readers of Dan Brown and Dennis Lehane.”

— Library Journal (starred)

“Again proving himself one of today’s top thriller writers, Koryta creates edgy suspense not with trickery but with characters who test the limits of their courage.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred)

“A frightening thriller about the holes in our infrastructure and the security protecting it. In this second Markus Novak novel, following 2015's Last Words, Koryta effectively combines a compelling premise, a villain who seems too smart to be stopped, and a revealing look at the hero's dysfunctional family.”
