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: it establishes Michael Koryta as the top young mystery writer in America today.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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 twenty-one, Koryta is now twenty-two, but Sorrow’s Anthem is no sophomore slump.” Washington Post
“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
“One of America’s top young mystery writers.” Toronto Sun
“Koryta…receives high marks for a well-constructed plot and his particular talent at depicting action-packed scenes.” Halifax Chronicle-Herald
“Koryta’s impressive second hardboiled mystery is a worthy successor to his debut, Tonight I Said Goodbye, an Edgar and Shamus finalist…The twenty-two-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
“Inspired by Hammett and Chandler, the twenty-two-year-old Koryta displays the maturity of a writer with several novels under his belt, and his plot percolates with crisp dialogue that might impress Chandler himself.” Booklist (starred review)
“Nicely told, with the requisite genre beatings and gunplay reserved for the end and the equally requisite angst, this time over past misdeeds, front and center.” Kirkus Reviews
“[A] work of rare profundity. The multilayered and labyrinthine plot is worthy of Raymond Chandler or (more aptly, perhaps) Ross MacDonald. And that’s more than mere hyperbole; Koryta is that good. Sorrow’s Anthem is so good it’ll bring tears to your eyes. And it’s good on just about every level; as a crime novel, as a hardboiled mystery, and as a mainstream exploration of choices, consequences, and of individual responsibility. In the end, and as far ‘anthems’ go, this one never misses a beat.” Mystery News
“Audie Award winning narrator Scott Brick…reads in an understated style, letting the author’s words do the work. He has the ability to portray the personality of the author, as well as those of the characters, even though the voices are not differentiated. This is an exciting and dramatic audiobook.” SoundCommentary.com
