Summary
Traveling to Florida by train with a young man named Paul, WW I veteran Arlen Wagner senses impending danger when he "sees" the other men in their CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) group turn to bones. Arlen makes Paul get off the train with him and they end up in a remote Florida town immersed in the nefarious dealings of a crooked sheriff and local judge. As they seek temporary shelter from a hurricane, Arlen must come to terms with his gift of second sight as well as deal with Rebecca, the feisty young woman who runs Cypress House on the Florida Coast.
Critique
Part historical, mystery, and even some romance, The Cypress House is a masterpiece of narrative fiction. Koryta just gets better and better. Can't wait for his next book.
