A journey to Florida's coast becomes an inescapable nightmare in the newest supernatural thriller from international bestseller Michael Koryta.

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 awakens on a train one hot Florida night and sees death's telltale sign in the eyes of his fellow passengers, he tries to warn them. Only 19-year-old Paul Brickhill believes him, and the two abandon the train, hoping to escape certain death. They continue south, but soon are stranded at the Cypress House--an isolated Gulf Coast boarding house run by the beautiful Rebecca Cady--directly in the path of an approaching hurricane.

The storm isn't the only approaching danger, though. A much deadlier force controls the county and everyone living in it, and Arlen wants out--fast. But Paul refuses to abandon Rebecca to face the threats alone, even though Arlen's eerie gift warns that if they stay too long they may never leave. From its chilling beginning to terrifying end, The Cypress House is a story of relentless suspense from 'one of the best of the best' (Michael Connelly).

Didn’t know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Kept me interested all the way through.

Good book! I'm becoming quite the Michael Koryta fan. At first I didn't see how Arlen Wagner's "awful gift" was really going to play into this book. So much of the book (after our initial exposure to this gift) seemed focused on building up tension. At the end though, Koryta pulls all the threads back together and shows us just how awful Arlen's gift can really be. Robert Petkoff's narration was brilliant. If you like this book.. make sure you check out The Ridge and So Cold The River by Michael Koryta. Both books are great. Both books are also narrated by Robert Petkoff
