Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A powerful tale of love and family, flitting back into the past as a man comes to grips with the murder of his father and the close proximity of the love of his life, married to another. As with Sebastian Faulks or Douglas Kennedy, this is the sort of absorbing novel that can be enjoyed by thriller readers or saga readers alike, both genders and all ages. It is just one great, big, thoroughly engaging read.
Comparison: Sebastian Faulks, Douglas Kennedy, Kate Atkinson.
Similar this month: Amitav Ghosh, Jonathan Tropper.

Synopsis

Stillriver by Andrew Rosenheim

Michael Wolf felt he had escaped his past - Stillriver, the small town in Michigan where he grew up, his troubles with his father, the petty jealousies and competitiveness of his younger brother, and most of all the disaster that ended his relationship with Cassie, the love of his life. As the book opens, Michael is forced to return to Stillriver when he is told of his father's brutal murder. He finds the town's new prosperity only partly masks old hurts and humiliations. But when he discovers that Cassie has also returned to Stillriver, he is thrown into total turmoil while trying to solve the mystery of his father's death.

A powerful love story, Stillriver, is also a novel about family relationships and the tensions of life in a small close-knit community.

Reviews

'Rosenheim eschews playing the plot simply for thrills, but nevertheless comes up with a real page-turner.' Daily Mail

'the writing is spectacular - smooth, effortless, with a pinpoint-accurate observational style and a direct track to the subtle motivations of his characters. In all, a thrilling, compulsive mystery-romance.' INK
