I thought this author's debut novel "King of Lies" was excellent but "Down River" is even better. A very well-written and gripping story that was very hard for me to put down. It has well developed characters, betrayal, and the dysfunctional family drama that always draws me in. I love the way this guy writes and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.

Down River is one of those books that once you start reading, it's hard to put down. It is full of plot twists, great characters, heroes and villans, deceit and violence. As the secrets are revealed the plot thickens until you just have to know what's next!

Couldn't put it down. Explores the emotional turmoil and baggage of a North Carolina family. john Hart has created characters that are complex and very human. The plot line kept me engaged the entire time. Really satisfying read.

This one of the best books I have ever read. The characters and plot are so well developed that you feel their every emotion. The twists and turns are constructed in such a way that when you must put the book down, you find yourself still thinking about them. This is the first book I have read by John Hart. I'm going to order another right now!!!!!

This was a page turner, with a wonderful twist in the end. A story about perseverance and believing in one's self when no one else does!

This John Hart's second novel and the second one I've read (although I'm reading them in reverse order it seems.) He's a great storyteller - draws you in at every turn. While I had some things figured out near the end, I didn't have the whole picture and was surprised - which was good. I really like how his characters have more than one dimension - like all of us do. :) Highly recommend.
