Description
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.

display_description In one of the most unique and powerfully realized debut novels of the decade, Craig Holden creates a page-turning drama that is both emotionally shattering and harrowingly plausible.

When a fatally burned victim is brought into the Morgantown General Hospital emergency room, a young doctor's life is changed irrevocably. For Dr. Adrian Lancaster, the arrival of "John Doe" is only the first of a bizarre and bloody series of events that will force him to relive his violent past and put him on the run. On the road and underground, accused and accuser, Lancaster's only hope for survival lies in facing the terrifying truth.
