Synopsis : 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.

Quatrième de couverture: "A brilliant first novel... The River Sorrow stuns from page one on. This is the first crime novel to capture late-20th century mid-American ennui and loss without whining. This is a book that oozes power." -- James Ellroy, author of The Black Dahlia and White Jazz.
"A one-of-a-kind read... gives an enlightening glimpse into the dramatic nexus of cops, crooks, and science." -- James Grady, author of Six Days Of The Condor andThunder.
"The River Sorrow is a beauty -- tough, complex, and thoroughly entertaining. It's not just a fine first novel, it's a wonderful book. Like a postmodern Ross MacDonald. I loved it." -- James Crumley, author of The Mexican Tree Duck
