Sobre o livro
Tim Johnston, whose breakout debutDescent was called “astonishing,” “engulfing,” and “outstanding” by national media, returns withThe Current, a tour de force about the indelible impact of a crime on the lives of innocent people.
In the dead of winter, outside a small Minnesota town, state troopers pull two young women and their automobile from the icy Black Root River. One is pronounced dead at the scene, while the other, Audrey Sutter, daughter of the town’s retired sheriff, survives. What happened was no accident, and news of the crime awakens the community’s memories of another young woman who lost her life in the same river ten years earlier, and whose killer may still live among them. Determined to find answers, Audrey soon realizes that she’s connected to the earlier unsolved case by more than just the river. And as she plunges deeper into her own investigation, she begins to unearth long-hidden secrets and stoke the violence simmering just below the surface of her hometown.
Brilliantly plotted, unrelentingly suspenseful, and richly atmospheric,The Current is a mesmerizing story about the fragility of life—and the power of fighting back.
