Overview
Mark Novak's greatest mystery may be his own...
Rise the dark. These were the last words written in Lauren Novak's notebook before she was murdered in a strange Florida village. They've never meant anything to the police or to her husband, investigator Markus Novak. Now the man he believes killed her is out of prison, and draws Markus to the place he's avoided for so long: the lonely road where his wife was shot to death beneath the cypress trees and Spanish moss in a town called Cassadaga.
In Red Lodge, Montana, a senseless act of vandalism shuts the lights off in the town where Sabrina Baldwin is still trying to adjust to a new home and mourning the loss of her brother, who was a high voltage linesman just like her husband, Jay. As the spring's final snowstorm calls Jay deeper into the mountains, chasing the destruction on the electrical grid, Sabrina is abducted by Garland Webb, the man Markus Novak believes killed his wife. Drawing them all together is a messianic villain who understands that you can never outpace your past. You can only rise against the future.

Two main narrative strands propel bestseller Koryta’s pulse-pounding sequel to 2015’s Last Words. When the electricity fails one snowy night, Jay Baldwin, a power-company foreman, leaves his Red Lodge, Mont., home to investigate. He later phones his wife, Sabrina, to report that someone has cut trees so that they have fallen onto power lines. Back at the house, Sabrina is confronted by an armed intruder, Garland Webb, who takes her hostage for an unknown reason. Webb, who was just released from prison for sexual assault, is the quarry of PI Markus Novak, who suspects Webb of murdering the detective’s wife, Lauren, in Cassadaga, Fla. Before Webb left prison, he arranged for a fellow prisoner to call Markus and taunt him—which only strengthens the widower’s resolve to bring Webb to justice and to figure out a cryptic phrase, “Rise the dark,” which Lauren wrote in a notebook right before her death. The villains may be cartoonish, but the dramatic conclusion does justice to the suspenseful setups. Author tour. Agent: Richard Pine, Inkwell Management. (Aug.)
