The Ridge
The Ridge
In an isolated stretch of eastern Kentucky, on a hilltop known as Blade Ridge, stands a lighthouse that illuminates nothing but the surrounding woods. For years the lighthouse has been considered no more than an eccentric local landmark-until its builder is found dead at the top of the light, and his belongings reveal a troubling local history.

For deputy sheriff Kevin Kimble, the lighthouse-keeper's death is disturbing and personal. Years ago, Kimble was shot while on duty. Somehow the death suggests a connection between the lighthouse and the most terrifying moment of his life.

Audrey Clark is in the midst of moving her large-cat sanctuary onto land adjacent to the lighthouse. Sixty-seven tigers, lions, leopards, and one legendary black panther are about to have a new home there. Her husband, the sanctuary's founder, died scouting the new property, and Audrey is determined to see his vision through.

As strange occurrences multiply at the Ridge, the animals grow ever more restless, and Kimble and Audrey try to understand what evil forces are moving through this ancient landscape, just past the divide between dark and light.

The Ridge is the new thriller from international bestseller Michael Koryta, further evidence of why Dean Koontz has said "Michael Koryta's work resonates into deeper strata than does most of what I read" and why Michael Connelly has named him "one of the best of the best."

Author One-on-One: Michael Koryta and Steve Hamilton

In this Amazon exclusive, Michael Koryta is interviewed by fellow thriller author Steve Hamilton. The tables get turned when Koryta interviews Hamilton on the Misery Bay page.
Michael Koryta
Hamilton: You broke in the same way I did, through the St. Martin's Press/Private Eye Writers of America contest. That first book, Tonight I Said Goodbye, went on to be nominated for an Edgar Award. How did you handle such sudden success at such a young age?
Koryta: Well, the positive side of being 20 when the book won the contest and 21 when it was published was that I knew absolutely nothing about publishing. I was an undergrad, working two jobs. Between all that and writing, I didn’t have time to worry, I just kept my head down and got work done.
Hamilton: You did two more Lincoln Perry novels after that first one, then broke out of the series to write Envy the Night. That’s a fairly early departure from a series. Were you conscious of the risk you were taking?
Koryta: You know, I didn’t think of it as a risk. I thought it was a better book than what I’d done before and therefore a wise move. That was the book that had to be written. I didn’t feel as if I had much choice in the matter. You’ve got a limited number of shots, so the only risk I see is in letting those slip past for stories you’d love to tell.
Hamilton: You returned to the series for one more Lincoln Perry book (The Silent Hour). Now, these were all very well-received, well-reviewed books. You were definitely on most everyone’s short list of favorite private eye writers. Any sane, normal person would have kept going down that same road. But you? Not so much. Please explain yourself.
Koryta: Again, we come back to the idea of the story you’ve just got to write. I’d been entranced with the folklore and history behind So Cold the River for years, and I just couldn’t put the brakes on. I went off to write a 500-page ghost story, and it prompted a change in publishers, but that book also ended up selling better and getting better publicity than anything I’d done before. So sanity, schmanity, says I!
Hamilton: Seriously, no matter what anyone says now, it was a radical departure for you to try something so different. You probably don’t like categories any more than I do, but you’re probably going to find So Cold the River on the “Horror” shelf in many bookstores, right next to Stephen King. (King, Koryta--okay, maybe Dean Koontz is in the middle there.) The thing that makes this so amazing to me is that just a few years ago, the horror genre was essentially left for dead. You had to know this. And yet here you are, breathing new life into it. What on earth made you decide to attempt such a leap?
Steve Hamilton
Koryta: Ironically, it found me shelved in “fiction and literature” instead of either mystery or horror. I never considered it all that different from my past work. To me, it was still suspense, just with a supernatural thread. But of course I knew some people would feel differently. I tried to take comfort in knowing that other writers--King, Koontz, Matheson, Levin, McCammon, Straub, Bradbury--had done just fine by focusing on writing well. And Joe Hill! Before he got any bump from being King’s son, he got a lot of attention simply for writing a great book. Heart-Shaped Box was an encouragement for me, a reminder of how much fun a writer should be having at his craft. You can feel how much fun he’s having.
Hamilton: You’ve kept working in this same vein, with The Cypress House and now with The Ridge. As good as your crime fiction was, I can’t help but think that you’re really hitting your stride now. Does writing a story with paranormal elements give you a better opportunity to do something truly original and amazing?
Koryta: It opens things up a great deal. I think of Hitchcock, who always created suspense, but delivered it in a lot of different ways. Any writer who’s interested in putting a real squeeze of tension around the reader’s heart probably considers a spooky tale at some point, and I’m surprised more don’t chase the impulse. I find that it allows me to wrestle with larger issues thematically and symbolically. Now, that’s a personal experience. But the past three books feel bigger to me in those ways.
Hamilton: Any plans to return to crime fiction (or for that matter, to Lincoln Perry)?
Koryta: Absolutely! The next book is going to be a traditional crime novel, a story I’ve been kicking around for years, about two brothers who lost a sibling to violent crime and grew up coping with that tragedy in radically different ways. It’s also a football book--one of the brothers is a high school coach in Ohio, where high school football is a very big deal. As for Lincoln, we’ll wait and see.

When I reached the trailhead for my hike up Comb Ridge to the Procession Panel petroglyphs, I met two nice couples who said the route was well marked but that I should stay low instead of follow my natural instinct to quickly gain the panel wall base. When I got the last cairn, my natural instict was to climb up to the base of what I thought to be the panel wall and hike it until I reached the Procession Panel petroglyphs. I decided to drop down and follow a trail I saw up through the sandy scrub to the slickrock. It brought be to a beautifl view over the top of Comb Ridge, through a slickrock notch, but I knew then that I would either have to drop back down the grade to where I had left the last cairn OR carefully climb directly up the ledges under the panel wall. I used my GPS just to make certain the panel was where I thought it was, then climbed the ledges, coming out right below the Procession Panel petroglyphs. I thoroughly enjoyed the variety and some of the "unique" styles of petroglyphs in this well preserved and interesting petroglyph site. I took lots of photos, then returned down the panel wall cliff base, finding many old and worn petroglyphs to admire, along the way. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ May 12th through May 19th - - I traveled 9 states in 8 days, camping, driving back roads, visiting scenic and historic sites, and taking some great day hikes. These are some of the photographs from this solo "road trip". Day One: Home in Eastern Washington; Mountain Home, Idaho; Owyhee, Nevada and a very cold night camped at Wild Horse Crossing south of Mountain City, Nevada. Day two: NEVADA - - Mountain City; Elko; Wells; Ely (through a snow storm); Panaca. UTAH - - Enterprise, Veyo, to a warm and scenic enjoyable camp and hiking at Snow Canyon. Day three: UTAH - - Snow Canyon; St. George; Hurricane; to Fredonia, Arizona. Forest Service Road #22 and many others to places like Monument Point and Indian Hollow. Too cold to camp (got down to 19 degrees that night), so dropped down low to BLM wilderness land off 89 A and spent the night among sagebrush and juniper with curious mule deer as "neighbors". Day four: Opening day of the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Visited the park and arriving early had many places (Cape Royal), entirely to myself. ARIZONA: Vermillion Cliffs; Page; Kaibito; and Navajo National Monument and Betatakin, where I had my nicest camp site (Canyon View at Betatakin). Day five: Betatakin camp to Kayenta; Monument Valley to drive the 17 mile "loop road" through the monument; to Mexican Hat to recharge my camera battery (Canon G10) while eating Navajo stew and fry bread at a cafe along the San Juan River; to Comb Ridge where I took two short enjoyable "rock art and cliff dwelling" hikes (procession panel and Monarch Cave ruins; up to Blanding, Utah where I checked into a small motel for two nights. Day six: Get up early and hike a bit over 14 miles down Kane Gulch; down Grand Gulch to Todie Canyon, with many side excursions to visit cliff dwellings, granaries, rock art sites, etc. Weather started to blow in by the time I finished my hike. Day seven: Changed my mind with the weather. Instead of heading for the Bisti Wilderness (for the first time) and Chaco Canyon (for the third time) - - I headed north through Moab then turned east toward Grand Junction, Colorado. Stopped at Sego Canyon rock art site outside of Thompson Springs, Utah. COLORADO - - Grand Junction, Rifle, Craig. WYOMING - -Baggs, Rawlins, Lander, Dubois (where I got a real nice motel room for a reasonable rate). Day eight: Left Dubois, Wyoming early. Cold, windy, cloudy weather with a hint of snow in the air. Drove up through Yellowstone Park and exited via Mammoth Hot Springs; then on to Livingston, Montana. On I-90; hitting sun, the clouds, the rain, then a nasty storm (between Missoula, Montana and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho). Slept in pickup camper before driving on through the early morning back to my home in Eastern Washington. Day nine: Arrived home at 4:30 am. Another fun road trip.
Klang gate quartz ridge
Klang gate quartz ridge
The largest/longest quartz ridge in the world. * Bukit Tabur, Melawati, KL, Malaysia. The outskirts of the city of Kuala Lumpur is surrounded by many greyish outcrops that many may dismiss as mere limestone rocks. One such length of craggy rocks near Ampang is not built of limestone, but of quartz. Built almost entirely of quartz - essentially glass crystal – there are many reasons why the Klang Gates Ridge deserves to be declared a World Heritage Site and a national monument. A quartz vein – which is a naturally occurring thin thread of quartz running through granite or other materials – is usually only about several millimetres to several centimetres wide. A quartz dyke, such as the Klang Gates Ridge, is its bigger cousin. Indeed, the most spectacular part of the ridge is its mid-section, which stretches from Taman Melawati to the Zoo Negara in the Ampang area. There are major quartz veins around Kuala Lumpur and Seremban because of the old Kuala Lumpur-Mersing fault zone. During the tectonic folding millions of years ago, massive buckling and faulting in the earth's crust thrust hydrothermal quartz upwards, where they then crystallised. There is another quartz ridge in Kuala Lumpur along the Kajang-Cheras road, which runs about 8 km long. But the Klang Gates Ridge is unique simply because of its sheer size. Another reason why it is unique is that it displays four types of quartz formation. However, much of it is opaque white or tainted with grey, and lined with minute needles of clear hexagonal quartz crystals in some places. Despite its uniqueness, it gets very little conservation attention. Campers and hikers accidentally or intentionally destroy its flora and fauna or leave their rubbish behind while collectors chip off its quartz crystal as souvenirs. But the biggest threat is urban development. Because of its closeness to Kuala Lumpur, and increasing demand for land to house the city's growing population, the foothills at the ridge have always been under intense development pressure. Not only have clearings for agricultural settlements taken over much of its western slopes, but new residential and industrial areas are also earmarked. Much of this targeted area surrounds the National Zoo as well as the forests next to the Klang Gates Dam catchment area and the Ulu Gombak Forest Reserve. The part of the Ridge surrounding the dam and forest reserve is rich with vegetation. Surveys indicate at least 265 plant species thrive here, with five of them endemic to the area. Hence, conservationists have reasons to fear for their future. Currently, only its inaccessibility is ensuring its survival. Another reason why a bigger area should be gazetted as a wildlife reserve is the presence of a rare animal, the serow. A National Parks and Wildlife Department survey carried out in 1985 found the tracks of five serows, but it's anyone's guess how many exist today. If development continues unchecked, or if there is no active and proper management of the Ridge, including the reforestation of devastated slopes, the quartz dyke may, in time, disappear. Conservationists and scientists have persistently called for an enlargement of the wildlife reserve, or for inclusion within the recently established Selangor Heritage Park. Scientists and researchers say that the Ridge is valuable not only in terms of botanical or geological interest, but also in terms of what it can offer people. Because of its proximity to the city, it can be used for eco-tourism, education and recreation, but only if it is properly and sustainably managed to avoid further deterioration. (source: WWF)
