River of Shame by Susan Clayton-Goldner



Winston Radhauser has a complicated life as this book begins. Radhauser is a detective with a small department in Oregon. This is Winston Radhauser’s second chance at having a family. He values them so much more having lost his first family tragically.

In this small town everyone knows each other’s business which is a good thing and a bad thing.

Racial crimes are being committed here. Something unheard of. Someone has formed a white supremacy group. Who is responsible for these hate crimes? Are all these hate crimes connected?

Everyone knows each other’s business but someone has secrets. This falls on Detective Radhauser’s to solve. It gets personal too. Jeopardizing everything he values more than his own life.

The characters are all well developed. Everyone’s lives seem to somehow be weaved together in this country town. It gets very complicated. I couldn’t put this book down.

Run A Thriller by Blake Crouch


The Colclough family is at the center of this suspense filled thriller. Dee and Jack are the parents of Naomi and Cole. Not a perfect family. A typical family in many ways. Their world turns into a nightmare in an instant.

Everyone wants to kill the Colclough’s. The only option-RUN. A families struggle to survive through a violent unidentifiable plaque with the main symptom being to murder those unaffected.

The characters are well defined. This is fast moving. I found myself cringing more than once.

The reader is part of this family with its changing dynamics. Living the hell they find themselves in. Surviving.
