Dear Librarians,

In RIVER OF SECRETS, a social justice activist who makes the wealthy and powerful uncomfortable with their past is arrested for the murder of a state legislator with ambiguous morals. Detective Wallace Hartman's investigation inflames Baton Rouge when she exposes malignant undercurrents of racial politics and family connections, ultimately clearing the way for a more hopeful future.

Midwest Book Review writes: "Another deftly crafted, inherently riveting mystery showcasing author Roger Johns' originality and total mastery of the genre, RIVER OF SECRETS is unreservedly recommended for community library Mystery/Suspense collections."

And Kirkus Reviews calls it: "A worthy sequel with plenty of procedural detail and a shattering conclusion."
