The Rivers Run Dry by Sibella Giorello
In The Rivers Run Dry by Sibella Giorello, FBI Agent Raleigh Harmon receives a disciplinary transfer from Virginia to the great Northwest. She arrives to less than agreeable circumstances and is quickly called to the scene of a young female hiker’s disappearance. Throughout the case, Raleigh must deal with a clairvoyant, parent’s who seem to be hiding something but insist their daughter has been kidnapped, a arrogant coworker, a new age aunt, an undercover poker game and a “friend” with fatal intentions.
I loved this book! The Rivers Run Dry is a well written, suspenseful novel that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. I really liked that the book was not “predictable” Christian fiction, neatly wrapped in Scripture references and “christianese.”
Sibella Giorello grew up in Alaska and majored in geology at Mt. Holyoke College. After riding a motorcycle across the country, she worked as a features writer for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Her stories have won state and national awards, including two nominations for the Pulitzer Prize. She now lives in Washington state with her husband and sons.
