A “raw, relentless, and heart-poundingly real” (Ruth
Ware, New York Times bestselling author) thriller set
against the harsh beauty of the Maine wilderness, The
River at Night charts the journey of four friends as
they fight to survive the aftermath of a white water rafting
Winifred Allen needs a vacation.
Stifled by a soul-crushing job, devastated by the death of
her beloved brother, and lonely after the end of a
fifteen-year marriage, Wini is feeling vulnerable. So when
her three best friends insist on a high-octane getaway for
their annual girls’ trip, she signs on, despite her misgivings.
What starts out as an invigorating hiking and rafting
excursion in the remote Allagash Wilderness soon becomes an
all-too-real nightmare; a freak accident leaves the women
stranded, separating them from their raft and everything
they need to survive. When night descends, a fire on the
mountainside lures them to a ramshackle camp that appears to
be their lifeline. But as Wini and her friends grasp the
true intent of their supposed saviors, long buried secrets
emerge and lifelong allegiances are put to the test. To
survive, Wini must reach beyond the world she knows to
harness an inner strength she never knew she possessed.
With intimately observed characters and visceral prose,
The River at Night “will leave you gasping, your
heart racing, eyes peering over your shoulder to see what
follows from behind” (Mary Kubica, New York Times
bestselling author). This is a dark exploration of
creatures—both friend and foe—that you won’t soon forget.
