DON'T LOOK DOWN . . .
Early one morning Claire Malvern awakes to an empty bed -- and her husband missing. There is no trace of Keith Malvern -- only an eyewitness who claims a man jumped off the bridge at Bloodroot Falls in the middle of the night.
It is the spectacular waterfall that first drew Claire and Keith away from their fast-paced, high-tech careers to pursue the dream of opening a bed-and-breakfast in the rustic lodge above Bloodroot River. But the dream becomes a nightmare when Keith's body is found snagged in the river rapids, his death ruled a suicide.
Claire knows her husband would never take his own life. But local sheriff Nick Braden thinks her suspicions of foul play are unfounded. Despite his skepticism, Nick and Claire start digging into her husband's past . . . and what they uncover paints a shocking portrait of what really happened that September night.

An idyllic small town setting is no protection against terror in this tale of painter/interior decorator Claire Malvern and her husband Keith, who leave the pressures of urban life and the corporate world to pursue their dream of opening a rural B&B fishing lodge in the Pacific Northwest. When Keith disappears from bed one night and is later found drowned in the thundering Bloodroot Falls, his death is ruled a suicide by the local sheriff, widower Nick Braden. But Claire is convinced otherwise, and gradually, as her investigations bring ominous secrets to light, Nick begins to agree. Harper (The Stone Garden, etc.) has a fantastic flair for creating and sustaining suspense. By the book's climax, virtually everyone in the region seems a viable suspect, even legendary real-life airplane hijacker D.B. Cooper and Sasquatch. But there's perspiration as well as inspiration involved in building the narrative tension; what makes the author's dramatic plot turns truly work is painstaking background research. This deft knitting of fact and fiction enables Harper to describe everything from wilderness survival to supernatural lore with the kind of detail that convinces readers anything is possible.
