BOOK REVIEW --THE RIVERS RUN DRY
“To God, whose mercies are new every morning. And Pastor Mark Driscoll of
This book has a quirky cast of characters but the main character is Raleigh Harmon, a compelling, complicated heroine.
The story centers on a college girl who suddenly goes missing. This superbly crafted mystery will keep you reading compulsively as hope runs short, the clock runs down, and the rivers run dry. This routine case turns deadly and agent Raleigh Harmon finds her career on the rocks and her life at stake.
One glance at my sidebar and you will see that all the books I have reviewed are of a religious nature. This book is different. It is a mystery that holds the reader in its powerful grip until the very last word. Author Fred Chappell said, “No mystery lover should pass up this novel.” I agree.
I am happy to send this review out with a strong recommendation for this book. More and more, along with my reviews of books on faith and religion, I am going to review novels, memoirs, Christian fiction, and other books of interest to me—and I hope to you.
