In this dark gripping mystery a brutal murder unearths old secrets that should have stayed buriedA body just turned up in the small town of Portland Pennsylvania The crime is eerily similar to a twenty year old cold case another victim brutally murdered found in the Delaware River Lead detective Parker Reed is intent on connectin. I received River Bodies a new novel written by Karen Katchur coming out in fall 2018 through NetGalley Besides having a gorgeous cover and an interesting title the premise was intriguing enough for me to say yes when the publisher offered it I m glad I did as it had a wonderful balance of mystery and good old fashioned storytellingThe book is told from the perspective of several different characters across a county on the Pennsylvania and New Jersey border Bodies have been found over several years in the river It s widely known that Scion gang are responsible but it s not always what it seems Two different chiefs of police daughters of various members step families affairs and mysterious connections lurk in the background It s uite a puzzle and you re never sure who is protecting whomThe writing style is strong It is very descriptive but never too much I feel like I know the area well I also lived not too far from it and understand many references eg shootings in Easton It s the type of book where I enjoyed the read but didn t care for the characters They were well written but as people none were appealing given how they talked or what they believed in At the same time it s a very real part of society and deserves a spotlight It showcases how different experiences and areas to live in shape who we are Surviving is tough when you have less support from those around you Katchur brilliantly shows these aspects and helps you connect with someone you might not normally be around It sounds odd to say it in this way but it s the best way to describe how I felt while reading the book Example sworn oaths to protect and kill for the sake of the group an eye for an eye revenge even if you get caught it happens in realityKudos to the author and thanks to the publisher for sending the book to me I d definitely read from Katchur and would recommend this book to others
