Adam Chase has a violent streak, and for good reason. As a boy, he saw things no child should witness, suffered wounds that left him misunderstood - a fighter. Even grown, he remains dangerous and unpredictable, so that when he narrowly beats a murder charge, he's hounded out of town, exiled for a sin he did not commit. For five long years, he disappears. But now he's back, and no one knows why - not his family or the cops, not the enemies he left behind. But Adam has his reasons. After he's attacked within hours of his return, the tone of his homecoming is set. As bodies turn up and the town rises in anger, Adam again finds himself in the fight of his life, not just to prove his innocence, but to reclaim the only life he's ever wanted. Secrets build on secrets, emotions tear, and more than one person crosses the brink as Hart examines the lengths to which people will go for money, family, and revenge.

From the Back Cover:

John Hart’s debut, THE KING OF LIES, catapulted him onto the New York Times bestseller list and earned comparisons to the works of Raymond Chandler, John Grisham, and Scott Turow. Now, Hart delivers another thriller of profound insight and psychological complexity with DOWN RIVER

“Truly splendid.”—Booklist (Starred Review)

Adam Chase is passionate and misunderstood, a fighter. When narrowly acquitted of a murder charge, he disappears for five long years: not a clue, not a trace. Now, he’s back and nobody knows why—not his family or the cops, not the women he left behind. But Adam has his reasons.

“The thrills come fast and furious.”—The Washington Post

When more bodies surface, Adam must unravel a web of deceit and violence so dense it staggers the imagination. Old secrets rise, lives collapse, and more than one person crosses the brink as author Hart probes the timeless, destructive power of deception and vengeance.

 “Nail-biting suspense.”—Raleigh News and Observer

Book Description GRIFFIN, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. A powerful, heart-pounding thriller from the unparalleled New York Times bestselling and two-time Edgar Award-winning author of The Last Child and The King of Lies, Down River will haunt your thoughts long after the last page is turned.

Secrets build on secrets, emotions tear, and more than one person crosses the brink as Hart examines the lengths to which people will go for money, family, and revenge. Praise for John Hart and Down River [Hart] combines gripping plots with a wonderful gift for prose, making his books literary crowd-pleasers that appeal to the brain as well as the emotions.
