"A first-rate thriller . . . Past and present merge in The Current, Tim Johnston's atmospheric, exquisitely suspenseful novel of two murders separated by ten years."-br /> GThe Washington Post

G----++----+Gripping . . .-ohnstonGs masterful novel is worth lingering overGit soars above the constraints of a traditional thriller and pulls you deep into the secrets of a grief-stricken town.G----+++---+

Tim Johnston, whose breakout debut Descent was called G----++----+astonishing,G----+++---+ G----++----+dazzling,G----+++---+ and G----++----+unforgettableG----+++---+ by critics, returns with The Current, a tour de force about the indelible impact of a crime on the lives of innocent people.

In the dead of winter, outside a small Minnesota town, state troopers pull two young women and their car from the icy Black Root River. One is found downriver, drowned, while the other is found at the sceneGhalf frozen but alive.

What happened was no accident, and news of the crime awakens the communityGs memories of another young woman who lost her life in the same river ten years earlier, and whose killer may still live among them.

Determined to find answers, the surviving young woman soon realizes that sheGs connected to the earlier unsolved case by more than just a river, and the deeper she plunges into her own investigation, the closer she comes to dangerous truths, and to the violence that simmers just below the surface of her hometown.

Grief, suspicion, the innocent and the guiltyGall stir to life in this cold northern town where a young woman can come home, but still not be safe. Brilliantly plotted and unrelentingly propulsive, The Current is a beautifully realized story about the fragility of life, the power of the past, and the need, always, to fight back.
