Rivers taps into every parent’s deepest fear in his newly released shocker, The Yomen. Clint Roberts discovers what is truly important as this family vacation turns into a nightmare. Recently fired from his editorial post and behind on his mortgage, Clint retreats from his pain and seeks refuge at the family cabin located on the scenic Ouachita River.Vividly graphic and superbly written, The Yomen is a contrast of the beauty in nature and the darker side of man. For Clint and his daughter, the cabin had always been a sanctuary, a place of peace, relaxation and fun that is until this trip. As a young boy, Clint had been told tales of the “Yomen”, a colloquialism for any unexpected danger either by an act of God, or man. Unlike omens, people (the victims) never see the threat coming. Danger appears from nowhere.In this spell bounding thriller, the reader is perched with the perfect vantage point. You see what is coming, or do you? A rash of disappearances and murders has recently baffled police in Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma. Roberts, a newspaper man, would normally be aware of the latest developments except that he has blocked out all headlines and current events. He is a man on the run from his problems, hiding from a world in which he can no longer cope.Then, as it so often occurs in life, evil, the epitome of evil, emerges from nowhere when we least expect it. It happens on seemingly beautiful days, and it is at its worse when we are totally unprepared. It walks into a theater, or boards a plane. We never know until it is too late. Rivers masterfully weaves the lives of both good and evil through the pages of his story until he threads them together in a most terrifying outcome. In the process, every fear that we have emerges to the surface. As always, he keeps the reader in suspense until the very last page. The endings to Rivers’ novels are never predictable. The reader is kept guessing, who will win and who will survive?And most important perhaps, who is the Yomen?For other Rivers novels visit www.waderivers.com.
