Problems arise quickly, though, when Megan suspects that a10-year-old boy in her class is being molested by his foster father, who happens to be the head of the local school board.Megan works to gain the confidence of the secretive boy, Wesley, but when she has enough evidence to press for an investigation, things go terribly wrong: Wesley accuses her of misconduct, and the foster father forces her to resign. When the boy then disappears, Megan becomes the prime suspect in his possible murder.Like the character-driven mysteries of Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane, and John Hart, River of Secrets moves forward with relentless momentum until finally reaching its startling climax.
