Tim Johnston will Present his New Hardcover Novel ~ The Current

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Tim Johnston, New York Times Bestselling Author of Descent, will Present his New Hardcover Novel The Current.  This Event is Co-Presented by Rainy Day Books & Mid-Continent Public Library.

ABOUT TIM JOHNSTON:  Tim Johnston, a native of Iowa City, is the Author of The Current and The New York Times Bestseller Descent, as well as a Young Adult (YA) Novel, Never So Green, and the story collection Irish Girl, Winner of the Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Tim Johnston, whose breakout debut Descent was called "astonishing," "dazzling," and "unforgettable" 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 scene --half frozen but alive.  What happened was no accident, and news of the crime awakens the community's 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 she's 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 guilty--all 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.
