Every now and then we encounter a new book that we’re so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we've created a special tag to distinguish it from the rest: TC VIB (very impressive book)! That means it’s a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books.
Eighteen year old Caitlin Courtland's abduction while running in the Colorado mountains, witnessed by her younger brother, sets the stage for a heart pounding and heartbreaking thriller. Descent is masterfully crafted by Tim Johnston as he chronicles the devastating psychological damage done to Caitlin's family and builds on the suspense of Caitlin's whereabouts and fate. It delivers what only the best thrillers can: a page-turning plot with complicated, fully drawn characters, and a whopper of a punch. Descent is a thriller that I'll be thrilled to handsell. ~Cathy L.
