Book - River Road


Titan Books announce a stunning new psychological thriller, River Road from best-selling author Carol Goodman...

River Road is a tense exploration of the notion of trust and community that will delight fans of the smash-hit book and film Gone Girl.

Driving through the midst of a snowstorm in upstate New York, creative writing professor, Nan Lewis, thinks she hit a deer. But then a police officer tells her that her student, Leia Dawson, has been killed in a hit-and run on River Road. And there is blood on Nan's car. Now the chief suspect, Nan finds herself reviled by the same community that supported her when her young daughter was killed in a similar accident six years ago. But when she begins to receive small, mysterious “tokens” Nan starts to suspect that the two accidents might be more connected than she first suspected… As Nan investigates further she starts to learn that those around her – including Leia Dawson – are hiding secrets that she’ll have to uncover before she can find the truth and clear her name. 

River Road is a gripping page-turner of a novel, offering an original female protagonist and a poignant story of grief, paranoia and betrayal. As Nan’s quest for the truth about the night of the hit-and-run draws closer to home she has to question everything and everyone she thought she knew, herself included.

Carol Goodman is the bestselling author of fourteen novels, including The Lake of Dead Languages which sold more than 160,000 copies and The Seduction of Water, which won the 2003 Hammett Prize. She has been nominated for the Simon & Schuster-Mary Higgins Clark Award, the Nero Wolfe Award, the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and more. She lives in the Hudson Valley and teaches creative writing at The New School and SUNY New Paltz.
