The Cypress House Synopsis

Arlen Wagner has seen it in men before - a trace of smoke in their eyes that promises imminent death. He is never wrong. When Arlen and his young companion Paul Brickhill are stranded at the Cypress House with a hurricane approaching, Paul won't abandon the boarding house's enigmatic mistress Rebecca to face the storm alone. But Arlen's gift warns him that if they stay too long, they may never leave.

The Cypress House Press Reviews

'Gangsters, a silent but heroic drifter with second sight, and a whopper of a Florida hurricane. How can you go wrong?'
Stephen King

'Koryta builds tension deftly and discreetly ... an intricate and satisfying thriller with a very human heart to its evil'
Observer

'The tension is cranked up expertly by Koryta, who creates the perfect atmosphere. And like his hero, he possesses an unusual gift - the ability to write a sure-fire bestseller.'
News of the World

'What makes the novel so gripping, apart from Koryta's scalpel-sharp prose and eye for detail, is the characterisation of Wagner, a laconic drifter haunted by the past. Recommended.'
Guardian
