Book Review for Thief River Falls

For those of you who like to read books that are written around Minnesota landmarks, Carleton College graduate, Brian Freeman, author of Thief River Falls, follows Lisa Power who now lives in a remote house outside Thief River Falls city limits. Ironically, she is the author of a book titled Thief River Falls and has survived some tragedies that took away her entire family…a series she calls the “Dark Star.” Lisa is now a tortured soul secluded in her rural home when she attempts to rescue an amnesiac lost boy with a terrifying story who appears one autumn night at her door. This nameless boy tells her he’s just escaped death after witnessing a hideous murder. A crime the police and other powerful men, who are now chasing him, want to cover up. Lisa becomes obsessed with his safety and resolves to expose this brutal crime. She soon finds out that not only are these powerful men desperate to get the boy back, but they want her too. Lisa and the runaway are thwarted by bad weather and uncertainty because everyone in the area recognizes her as the famous author. Lisa must find a way to save them both or they will be the victims of another tragedy…she and the runaway have nowhere to go as the trap closes around them. This psychological thriller pulled me in and held my interest until the twisting plot brought the story to an unforeseeable shocking end. Thief River Falls is now in our CTK library.
