American writer Michael Koryta is finding the transition from promising newcomer to established bestselling author and easy one. In How It Happened, FBI agent Rob Barrett returns to the Maine countryside of his childhood to investigate a double murder. His interrogation of an unreliable witness leads to tragedy and secrets from his past. Koyta plays to his strengths bringing the Maine backwoods and its inhabitants alive, and this time adds a noir-ish element in the doomed witness and drug addict Kimberly Crepeaux, making How It Happened his most successful novel yet.
