In the dead of winter, outside a small Minnesota town, state troopers pull two young women and their car from the icy Black Root River. One is found downriver, drowned, while the other is found at the scene-half frozen but alive.

What happened was no accident, and news of the crime awakens the community's memories of another young woman who lost her life in the same river ten years earlier, and whose killer may still live among them.

Determined to find answers, the surviving young woman soon realizes that she's connected to the earlier unsolved case by more than just a river, and the deeper she plunges into her own investigation, the closer she comes to dangerous truths, and to the violence that simmers just below the surface of her hometown.

Grief, suspicion, the innocent and the guilty-all stir to life in this cold northern town where a young woman can come home, but still not be safe. Brilliantly plotted and unrelentingly propulsive, The Current is a beautifully realized story about the fragility of life, the power of the past, and the need, always, to fight back.

I didn’t like how the story kept skipping around. The story was hard to follow. The names of the characters were very confusing to. The narration was great just the story was confusing would not recommend it

I really enjoyed this book. I have found that audio books in general may require jotting down who characters are in the beginning because it can become confusing to keep straight without the ease of flipping back through like a hard copy. Once I did that, I had no trouble keeping up with characters or plot line.This book kept me eagerly looking for time to listen. The narrator did a terrific job! I'm going to check out what else Tim Johnson has written

The story was good and improved as the book progressed. I was totally hooked on the character Audrey but thought the ending was disappointing.

It was a slow start to the story but became more interesting as it went on. I was disappointed that a number of questions that popped up were never addressed at the end.

Good book Kept my interest but the jumping around through time lines was confusing. The ending left too many unanswered questions.

This was a suspenseful 'page turner' (if you will). It kept me very entertained on my commute.
