The Cypress House
EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Jan 24, 2011; Writer: Michael Koryta; Genres: Fiction, Mystery and Thriller; Publisher: Little Brown & Company

A series of coincidences leads WWI vet Arlen Wagner — who can sense when someone is about to die — to the Cypress House, an empty Florida resort run by a distractingly gorgeous mystery woman. That promising setup promptly gets lost in a romantic triangle, a hurricane, and a subplot involving a local tyrant. But when Koryta straightens his meandering plot, the second half of The Cypress House picks up steam, building to a seriously tense and twisted final act. With its evocative Gulf Coast setting, the book makes for a warm beach read in midwinter. B
