Marilyn StasioMichael Koryta earns a seat at the high table of neo-noir crime writers by putting a fresh spin on the fathers-and-sons narrative so many of his peers feel compelled to write over and over again. In Envy the Night, he gives substance to the usual drivel about young men burdened by the sins of their dead fathers—by making the old man a hired killer. That legacy genuinely merits the existential angst driving the 25-year-old Frank Temple III in his vendetta against Devin Matteson, the man he believes betrayed his father.
