Newcomer Craig Holden, one of the new generation of outstanding contemporary fiction writers, delivers a riveting novel set in the stark, bleak plains of the Midwest -- the Midwest of strip malls and dilapidated, long-abandoned steel mills. The Midwest of Morgantown General Hospital in southern Michigan. When a burn victim is brought into the ER, a young doctor's life is changed irrevocably. For the arrival of John Doe is just the beginning of a nightmare that will hurtle Dr. Adrian Lancaster into the netherworld of violence and obsession that once nearly destroyed him. Suddenly Lancaster finds himself the prime suspect in a string of murders. Shadowed by police and seeking refuge in the arms of a mysterious young woman, Lancaster risks his career and his life to follow the body-strewn trail that could lead him to the murderer. On the road and underground, only facing the terrifying truth will save him. A brilliant novel that hits hard from page one, The River Sorrow moves us, haunts us... and holds us spellbound until the final unforgettable scene.
