After spending a year in prison, Ralph Fisher has
explicit plans for his first night of freedom: tonight,
someone will be held accountable. He goes to murderous
lengths to obtain the address of his former wife -- the
woman he blames for his fate and against whom he has sworn
vengeance. Determined to bring her to his idea of justice,
Ralph's next step is to travel from Florida's sandy beaches
to Dayton, Ohio, where his ex-wife is struggling to make
ends meet on Mad River Road.
As riveting and beguiling as Joy Fielding's previous bestselling novels, , Mad River Road is a novel about courage, truth, and the strength that comes only when you believe in yourself.
"Nail-biting suspense... breathless twists and turns... (these) women in jeopardy excite and delight"
