The sequel to THE NANNY MURDERS, Jones’s suspense novel, THE RIVER KILLINGS weaves a gripping, fast-paced tale set on Philadelphia’s famous Boathouse Row. It begins just a few months after the previous book has ended, involving many of the same characters.
On summer vacation from her art therapy job, Zoe takes a sculling class for fun with her best friend, Susan Cummings. One evening, while her daughter waits with Susan’s children at the boathouse on the banks of the Schuylkill River, Zoe rows off with Susan to practice for an upcoming regatta. When Susan’s oar catches on some flotsam (which turns out to be a woman’s dress), the boat flips, and the two find themselves in deep waters with not just one but an entire throng of floating bodies.
Someone along Boathouse Row is a multiple murderer, but who? And why?
One night, after Zoe’s boyfriend, Detective Nick Stiles, goes to the river but doesn’t return, Zoe and Molly go looking for him and, unexpectedly, Zoe uncovers a sinister plot, far broader and deadlier than she has anticipated, and far more difficult to escape.
