Reviews

Raw, relentless and heart-poundingly real, this book knocked me off my feet like a river in flood * Ruth Ware, bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 * I've reached my limits with novels where the plot seems to focus on murdered women and/or children ... I'm more excited about the new wave of crime novels that are as much about location as they are about gruesome deeds. The River At Night, set during a women-only, white water rafting trip in the Maine wilderness, out in January ... is where the thriller is heading, I reckon * Red * Ferencik really gets under the skin of her characters, and brings depth to the horrors that await them on the river * Big Issue * Author Erica Ferencik's storytelling [is] ... brutally effective ... hurtling River's harrowing narrative along in a visceral, white-knuckle rush * Entertainment Weekly * With The River at Night, Erica Ferencik has created a surging and compulsively readable all-female nature thriller * Sydney Morning Herald * A visceral and pulse-pounding thrill ride of a novel, beautifully crafted with stunning descriptive writing that left me pining for the Maine wilderness in all its perilous beauty * Chris Ewan, no.1 bestselling author of Safe House * A fantastic book ... A brutal, tender story * T. R. Richmond, author of What She Left * Fast-paced, suspenseful ... and the narrative races towards a splendid climax. Good stuff * Lovereading * Ferencik's writing pulses with a dangerous energy akin to the river she depicts * Vicki Pettersson, New York Times bestselling author of Swerve * Terrifying and wholly visceral, The River at Night will leave you gasping, your heart racing, eyes peering over your shoulder to see what follows from behind. Take a deep breath before you begin because it's the last you'll have until you're through * New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Mary Kubica * A twisty, dark, unrelenting thriller that kept me frantically turning the pages well into the night. Erica Ferencik skillfully combines jolting plot twists, lyrical prose and a beautifully brutal setting cementing The River at Night as my favorite debut of the year * New York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf * Sex and the City meets Deliverance * Tamar Cohen, author of First One Missing and When She Was Bad * A twisting, turning thrill ride of a novel, The River at Night will sweep you along, pull you under and not let you come up for air until you've turned the last page * New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McMahon * Ferencik pushes her characters to the edge in a starkly beautiful and unforgiving wilderness ... A harrowing, devastating, and superbly written thriller, The River at Night grabbed hold of me and didn't let go until the final, perfect sentence' * A. J. Banner * A white water thrill ride to be sure. But it's more than that. Erica Ferencik digs deep into friendship, midlife angst, and how we can surprise ourselves when the worst things happen ... A terrific debut * Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Ink and Bone * A gal-pal vacation goes over the falls and into hell. You won't put it down * Kirkus Reviews *
