A novel by


"Beth Groundwater's Deadly Currents comes rushing at you from the first page like roiling whitewater, and culminates in a riveting climax that lives up to this book's name. If you like outdoor adventure and gripping characters, this one's a must-read."
Sandi Ault

"If you've wondered what white water river rafting is all about, get ready for a wild plunge into Colorado's Arkansas River with Mandy Tanner, river ranger extraordinaire and dauntless sleuth. Beth Groundwater gets the mountain town of Salida and its cast of river denizens just right.  Hurray for Deadly Currents, a heart-racing debut to a new series with as many twists and turns and unexpected upsets as a ride through the rapids itself."
Margaret Coel

"Beauty abounds in Beth Groundwater's new novel.  Beauty in the marvelous Colorado landscape, beauty in the symmetry of the story, and beauty in the language itself.  Deadly Currents is a remarkable book by an author who clearly knows and loves her territory.  Don't miss it!"
William Kent Krueger

"An exciting ride from the very first chapter, with a courageous heroine in a fascinating line of work."
Nancy Pickard

The Arkansas River is the heart and soul of Salida, Colorado. It fuels the small town's economy and thrums in the blood of twenty-seven-year-old Mandy Tanner, a river ranger. When a whitewater rafting accident occurs, she deftly executes a rescue, but a man dies anyway. But it wasn't the river rapids that killed him, it was poison. Tom King was a rich land developer with bitter business rivals, who cheated on his wife, refused to support his kayak-obsessed son, and infurtiated enviromentalists.

Mandy's world turns upside down when her beloved Uncle Bill - the respected owner of a raft outfitting business - dies of a heart attack. Suspicious that his death is somehow connected to Tom King, she goes on an emotionally turbulent quest for the truth - and ends up in dangerous waters.
