The Rivers Run Dry

Raleigh Harmon, a female FBI agent, has a lot going on in her life. She finds herself being transferred from Richmond, VA to Seattle, WA for "disciplinary" reasons. Her supervisors, one of them being a very egotistical male, has made her transition anything but smooth. She is also living there with her mother and aunt who have very different beliefs, as well as eating habits. To top it all off, she is put on a case that soon endangers her life as well.

The Rivers Run Dry is a suspenseful novel. It keeps you guessing, or at least it did me, who the bad guys are until the end. I thought I had a good idea and was trying to see how it all fit together, but found out in the end, I was completely wrong. Buts, she did tie everything together so that it made sense.

If I were to come up with something negative about this book, it's that I don't know if I would consider it "Christian" fiction. There are subtle references to Jesus and to God, but nothing specific. She also writes about a charismatic belief in the Holy Spirit, and includes psychics and other "spiritual" type beliefs.

Overall, I thought this was a well written mystery and enjoyed reading it.
