Another freezing mystery from Tim Johnston, this time on the border of Minnesota and Iowa. So much fun!
Heart-stopping and heart-wrenching…Like a current, Johnston’s story sweeps us in and doesn’t let go.
This will be the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri of the book world, and I hope it actually wins the prizes!
If you read literary suspense, this is your book. If you are looking for a book you can’t put down, this is your book. If you need a story that will follow you for days, this is your book.
I simply had to give this one the mighty 5-Star medal of honor…it’s his uncanny ability to hone his characters into believable, raw, achingly human individuals who tread the high roads of life as well as the dark, foreboding roads, too.
A gripping thriller and page turner but also a masterwork of mood and language…You’ll want to go fast at the same time you’ll be compelled to savor each and every word.
This novel is full of believable and sympathetic characters whose stories…keep the reader hanging on…I found myself aching for justice and closure…definitely a must read!
As deceptively thick yet brutally delicate as winter ice itself…this novel has at its heart a strong belief that love, for all the pain it brings, is the one thing that truly saves us.
How the hell did he write an even better book than Descent? I am motivated to break my record of selling 100 copies of a hardcover without an author event!
I don’t usually rate suspense novels this high, but Johnston’s…characters are fully drawn, and he knows how to build suspense and keep readers flipping pages. I liked this even better than his first novel.
Tim Johnston’s second novel, The Current, is even better than his first, which is saying something.
