Publisher's Summary

In the beginning, it was just about the money. Then things got personal. This is the story that Ed Gradduk tells his best friend, private investigator Lincoln Perry. Ed is on the run, hiding from the police who are looking to arrest him for arson and murder. When Gradduk is killed in a brutal confrontation with the Cleveland police, Perry is shaken. How could this have happened to his friend? With his trademark grit and determination, Perry sets out to understand the forces that brought down Ed Gradduk.

Sorrow’s Anthem is marked by a sure-handed exploration of both character and its relationship to crime. It more than delivers on the promise of Tonight I Said Goodbye and establishes Michael Koryta as the top young mystery writer in America today.

What the Critics Say

“Sometimes a book grabs you and stays in your memory long after the rest of the in-box’s contents have been flushed away by new arrivals. Koryta’s second mystery about Cleveland private eye Lincoln Perry has this kind of hold on me…Dashiell Hammett of Red Harvest would appreciate the tangle of high-level political and police corruption of Sorrow’s Anthem, but anyone who mourns for lost friendships will add a more visceral reaction.” (Chicago Tribune)

“Perry is an appealing fellow, and Koryta is a straightforward storyteller, but the real pleasure here is touring the back streets of C-Town….Nominated for an Edgar Award for best first novel at the age of 21, Koryta is now 22, but Sorrow’s Anthem is no sophomore slump.” (Washington Post)

“Koryta’s impressive second hardboiled mystery is a worthy successor to his debut, Tonight I Said Goodbye, an Edgar and Shamus finalist….The 22-year-old author, who works for a PI and for an Indiana newspaper, displays credible insider knowledge of those professions as well as a gift for creating both sympathetic characters and a fast-moving, twisty plot.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "Another winner by Koryta and Brick"

    When PI Lincoln Perry learns that his childhood buddy he hasn't seen in eight years is wanted for arson and murder, Perry sets out to find his friend, Ed Gradduck, and do what he can to help him. But Ed is killed in an accident and Perry is left with a lot of baggage over their broken friendship and refuses to believe his buddy was a murder. Perry decides to investigate the fire and murder in hopes of clearing Ed's name, despite reservations by Perry's partner, retired cop, Joe Pritchard.

    Another great book by Koryta, he has a winner with this Lincoln Perry series and Scott Brick's reading keeps your attention.
