Publisher's Summary

Heroine Zoe Hayes, a divorced art therapist with a six-year-old adopted daughter, returns with another gripping tale set in Philadelphia, this time taking place on the famous Boathouse Row.

On summer vacation from her job, Zoe takes a sculling class with her best friend, Susan. One evening, while her daughter waits with Susan's children at the boathouse on the banks of the Schuylkill River, the two mothers row off to practice for an upcoming regatta. But when their boat capsizes, Zoe and Susan find themselves flailing about amongst a throng of floating corpses. Someone along Boathouse Row is a murderer. But who?

The River Killings

I really enjoyed this book on tape. This is the first time I've reviewed a book. It was extremely interesting & I couldn't stop listening. The pace was fast & the end unexpected. When I looked for more titles by this author I was disappointed to see there was only one more. I was hoping that there would be at least ten more. I will be watching for more books from this talented author.It's been a long time since I've listened to a book that I couldn't stop listening to.

EXTREMELY annoying.....

It was all I could do to get through this book. The characters are so immature and unsympathetic I found myself turning it off every few minutes because I wanted to just yell at them. Any child being raised in the Hayes / Cummings world should be prepared for years of therapy; just not from Zoe Hayes!
