The Prophet (Deluxe Signed Special Limited Edition)
Note for the Collectors:
About the Book:
Kent Austin is the beloved coach of the local high school football team, a religious man and hero in the community. After years of near misses, Kent's team has a shot at the state championship, a welcome point of pride in a town that has had its share of hardships.
Just before playoffs begin, the town and the team are thrown into shock when horrifically, impossibly, another teenage girl is found murdered. When details emerge that connect the crime to the Austin brothers, the two are forced to unite to stop a killer-and to confront their buried rage and grief before history repeats itself again.
Michael Koryta, long hailed as one of the best young thriller writers at work today, has written his greatest novel ever-an emotionally harrowing, unstoppably suspenseful novel that proves why Michael Connelly has named him "one of the best of the best."
Special Features Exclusive to this Deluxe Collector's Edition:
" A compulsively readable novel about brothers on opposite sides of life."
"I've been an admirer of the hardworking Michael Koryta for many years. I loved So Cold the River's creepy gothic tone; I was enthralled by the eerie world of The Cypress House. Koryta is a fantastic writer, and a remarkable storyteller. But his latest book, The Prophet, finds him at an entirely new level; I suspect it may be the novel that brings him the sort of widespread acclaim he's deserved all along. A gridiron metaphor would seem appropriate, given the crucial role football plays in The Prophet. It's as if Koryta has been wowing us with a brilliant running game for eight novels. We'd be more than happy to see him keep driving the ball up the middle, but here, suddenly, he's gone to the air: The Prophet is like a long, heart-stopping pass down the sidelines in the final seconds of a decisive game. It's made me want to leap to my feet and cheer him on."
"The Prophet is a relentless, heart-in-your-throat thriller about ordinary people caught in the middle of an extraordinary nightmare. It's about the sins of the past haunting the hopes of the present and the need to find redemption from the jury of your own conscience. It's also a quantum leap for Michael Koryta and irrefutable proof that he has enough game to one day be considered a master of the genre."
"Michael Koryta is an amazingly talented writer, and I rank The Prophet as one of the sharpest and superbly plotted crime novels I've read in my life."
"I'm just glad it's me, not Michael Koryta, who is telling my son bedtime stories. The kid needs to sleep, and The Koryta Effect is cold sweats, nightmares, and me in the next room up past two because I can't put down The Prophet."
Praise for the work of Michael Koryta:
"Gangsters, a silent but heroic drifter, and one whopper of a hurricane. How can you go wrong?"
"Michael Koryta's work resonates into deeper strata than does most of what I read."
