"CROOKED RIVER is a novel coursing with secrets and unasked
questions....This novel is a literary thriller and a psychological
study of the effects of loss, but most importantly, it's a damn
fine book."--Wiley Cash, New York TImes bestselling author
of A LAND MORE KIND THAN HOME and THIS DARK ROAD TO MERCY
"Crooked River is as much a coming-of-age novel as it is a well-paced mystery...Geary takes teenage Sam through a looking-glass and then pulls her back with an adult's sense of loyalty and compassion--a journey equally worthwhile for all of us."--Shelf Awareness
