How it Happened (Paperback)Michael Koryta (author)
- Coming soon
'A remarkable achievement that rises high above the genre' Nelson DeMille
'And that is how it happened. Can we stop now?'
Kimberly Crepeaux is a notorious jailhouse snitch and opioid addict whose petty crimes are well known to the locals in her rural Maine community. So when she confesses to her role in the brutal murders of Jackie Pelletier and Ian Kelly, the daughter of a prominent local family and her sweetheart, few believe her story.
Except FBI interrogation specialist Rob Barrett. He knows that Kimberly's story - a dope-fuelled hit and run followed by a violent stabbing - is how it happened. But one thing remains elusive: where are the bodies?
Barrett stakes his name and reputation on the truth of Kimberly's confession, only to have the bodies turn up two hundred miles from where she said they'd be, shot in the back and covered in a different suspect's DNA. The case is quickly closed and Barrett forcibly reassigned. But for Howard Pelletier, the tragedy of his daughter's murder cannot be so easily forgotten. And for Barrett, whose career may already be over, the chance to help a grieving father may be the only one he has left.
How It Happened is a frightening, tension-filled ride into the dark heart of rural America.

This gripping and absorbing story about a protagonist coming to terms with his conflicted past, a lost love, and a crime determined not to be solved, could only be penned by Michael Koryta, whose sense of place, and insight into the human spirit, are unsurpassed. -- Sandra Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author of SEEING RED
PRAISE FOR RISE THE DARK * - *
A superb thriller literally humming and buzzing with power and tension, given depth and resonance by Koryta's fascination with pitting lone human emotion against a vast and forbidding landscape -- Lee Child
Rise the Dark is -- excuse the pun -- electrifying. Koryta delivers nonstop action in an all-too-plausible scenario, with that hint of the uncanny that's become his trademark. The ending will have readers pounding his door for more -- Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Guilty Minds and Suspicion
Who needs jihadis when we've got our own homegrown terrorists? With a wild premise and fascinating background, Rise the Dark is a fast, gripping, satisfying thriller. For those who don't know yet, Michael Koryta is building a hell of a shelf * New York Times *
How it Happened is precise and thrilling with an offbeat charm. Koryta in his finest moments is reminiscent of Stephen King . . . Terrific * Metro *
