Consequences of Falling (A Riverfield Novel) by Glenn Sartori
Tragedy, murder, and conspiracy push three Riverfield residents down unfamiliar paths…
…..a psychologist who takes on an unethical mission; the wife of a detective who inserts herself in a murder investigation; and a former cabaret hostess who risks everything in order to discover her lover’s killer.
Mayhem abounds as Union Miller unwittingly becomes the link between the three—whose actions result in unexpected consequences that change the fiber of Riverfield forever.
Riverfield Novel Book Two is finally here and titled Consequences of Falling.
Bradley and Elizabeth survived a whirlwind romance, elopement and great sex, for two people who are as different as day and night and then their daughter Jessica was born.
Tragedy unfolds and life changes direction for Elizabeth. I Quote:
“As the clouds rolled across the sky obscuring the last bit of the evening light, Elizabeth kept watching the lake from her apartment’s deck. She thought of herself as a woman always watching something in motion, which was shifting and changing. She wasn’t in motion or was she? It made her light-headed to think of this. She yearned for her mind to be clear like the water, to be clear of that day in court. And the occasional woodpecker’s remote tapping and the air rending silence that followed it were only sounds registered in her head. They were meaningless, but that day in court was not.
It seemed her thoughts were determined to wander along that shadowy path, where court arguments laid like exposed roots across the forest floor. It was the day that her life totally fell apart, the day she lost her daughter. It had happened last month.”
How could things go so wrong?
It is October 1989 and Elizabeth Trent finds herself running from her past and the only answer might be revenge. A new counseling job in Riverfield, Missouri at the CYA clinic might be a good start. Would returning to the place of her childhood be the answer or would there be old ghosts?
Falling into the routines that a small town has to offer, Elizabeth immerses herself into her clients and secretly hopes she will bump into an old heart throb Union Miller. The mundane has a way of becoming short lived when secrets threaten to break free.
Murder and mayhem begins on Monday May 7, 1990. Can Elizabeth live with the consequences of her actions? Join the investigation as “The morning fog was as thick and wet as breath on a mirror, dimming the heat lightning in the air. Yellow bolts the color of a cat’s eye forked out above the police station. Inside an oppressive mood had settled over the building. Everyone was feeling frustrated. They needed some sort of concrete lead in order to move.”
Romance, tragedy, abduction, murder and conspiracy engage this well-developed cast of characters that include detective John Turner, Mike Ryan, Anne Turner, Kimberly Young, Peter Benton, Randy Bennett, Connelly Dunnerman, and Seiko Dunnerman. The events that unfold will change Riverfield’s small town forever, for now fear grips the community.
I love this fast paced novel with lots of suspense and mystery. Author Glenn Sartori uses real life stories as inspiration for this novel. He includes an excerpt from his next Riverfield Novel titled ‘Reflections Of Triplets’.
