John Hart. Down River. New York: Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Minotaur, 2007.

The chance for easy money tempts both the haves and the have-nots in this novel set along the Yadkin River near Salisbury. When Adam Chase, acquitted of a local murder years before, comes back to Rowan County, he finds that suspicion of him has not faded. He also discovers that the duplicity that wrecked his past may wreck both his future and the lives of the people he loves. When Chase tries to renew his tattered relationships, he uncovers secrets that upend his understanding of his past and set a new cycle of violence in motion.
