Black River is an electrifying return for relentless reporter Tuva Moodyson, from the author of Dark Pines and Red Snow.


Tuva's been living clean in southern Sweden for four months when she receives horrifying news. Her best friend Tammy Yamnim is missing.


Racing back to Gavrik at the height of Midsommar, Tuva fears for Tammy's life. Who has taken her, and why? And who is sabotaging the small-town search efforts?


Surrounded by dark pine forest, the sinister residents of Snake River are suspicious of outsiders. Unfortunately, they also hold all the answers. On the shortest night of the year, Tuva must fight to save her friend. The only question is who will be there to save Tuva?

Customer Reviews

Having read The Last Thing to Burn by this author, I was very keen to read his other work which is how I found myself with this one! Tuva Moodyson is a journalist who has moved from her home town some months ago. However, when she learns of the disappearance of her best friend she hightails it back to Gavrik, determined to find Tammy. Someone is sabotaging efforts to find her, and Tuva begins her own investigation but the resident of Snake River are suspicious of outsiders which doesn’t make it easy for her but her determination to save her friend keeps her going. My regret is that, in my haste to read another by Will Dean I didn’t take time to realise that this is third in a series and I think it would have been better to begin at the beginning. However, this is a very suspenseful read which really got my heart pumping more than once. An intricate and engaging read, beautifully written which kept me glued to the pages until the very end. I only wish I had read the series in order. For me, four stars.
