In 2008 he was honored as a "distinguished young alumni" by Indiana University, and in 2010 he was named "distinguished alumni' by the criminal justice department. Through his investigation, he found out about a child smuggling ring that involved everyone in the town and everyone on the yacht. Once again, Michael Koryta has created a cast of characters who are unforgettable and who each play a pivotal role in a story that seems to have varying plot lines but end up interacting in unexpected ways. Fiercely beautiful, this tender, yet powerfully told story of love and discovery cradles the reader in the most pleasurable way. I loved the coastal small town setting, the original premise, and the dynamics between the characters.

Readers are led to believe that Israel is an honest man despite his flawed past, so rooting for him comes easy, but just in case readers need more incentive, Michael Koryta weaves in the story of Lyman Rankin. In Ben Fergusson's An Honest Man our narrator Ralf revisits a particularly significant year in his life. Ralf struggles with several dualities in his life, amongst them his German-Britishness, being at the verge of finishing high school, and having a longtime girlfriend when he begins to explore his attraction to men.As well as a poignant love story, it’s also a gripping, original thriller; a final twist I definitely didn’t see coming sets a powerful climax in motion just as the Wall comes down. That fact is certainly not lost on his Uncles Sterling, brother to his late father, who wants nothing more than to put Israel back behind bars and out of his sight at any cost necessary.

It’s revealed that Sterling Pike, Israel’s uncle, has been trafficking little girls and taking money to look the other way. Ralf's group of friends was also solidly depicted and we get to see how his relationship with each one of his friends differs. A divided city where the Wall was not only physical, but psychological, where its citizens didn't really belong to their own city: living on the line, in fear, where they couldn't even trust their own neighbours.

There were so many stories of climbers falling down these crevasses, stories that had once terrified me, but I now imagined lying at the bottom of one, the snow beneath me soft, ice crisp in my nostrils, the high walls around me a perfect powder blue, the rough surface extracting every sound, so that all I would be able to hear would be my heartbeat in my ears.Showing no remorse for what his nephew did fifteen years earlier, Sterling is quick to want to place serious shade and suspicion upon Israel for this mass homicide. During his tenure at 20th Century Fox, Roybal acquired Koryta’s Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021) which starred Angelina Jolie and Jon Bernthal and was directed by Taylor Sheridan. The zeitgeist of 1989 comes through very well, captured through portraying particular West Berlin streets/neighbourhoods and what they represented at that time, along with cultural touchstones. It is important to study the background of Germany back in 1989: West Germany, East Germany, West Berlin, East Berlin and of course the Berlin Wall. Michael's previous work ranges from a trio of supernatural novels--So Cold the River, The Cypress House, and The Ridge, which were all named New York Times notable books of the year and earned starred reviews from Publishers Weekly--to stand-alone crime novels such as The Prophet (A New York Times bestseller) and Envy the Night (selected as a Reader's Digest condensed book), to a series of award-winning novels featuring private investigator Lincoln Perry--Tonight I Said Goodbye, Sorrow's Anthem, A Welcome Grave, and The Silent Hour.
