Waiting on Wednesday : The Cypress House

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. My pick this week is....

The Cypress House by Michael Koryta. Little, Brown, 2011. (To be published January 24)

So Cold the River is coming up on my TBR list, plus Michael Koryta is coming to Big Hat Books & Arts on February 2nd. I'm looking forward to seeing Mr. Koryta and hearing him talk about his new novel. Here's the description from Goodreads:

Arlen Wagner has an awful gift: he can see death in the eyes of men before it strikes. He's never wrong.
So 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.

It doesn't take Arlen and Paul long to realize that the storm isn't the only approaching danger--a much deadlier force controls the county and everyone living in it. But Paul refuses to abandon Rebecca to face the threat alone, and Arlen's eerie gift warns him that they'll 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).
