Published by Jeff_Mariotte
Within a labyrinth of caves in a small Texas town on the Rio Grande, among walls adorned with ancient petroglyphs, lies a pool of strange, luminescent water...
Twenty years ago, an anthropologist unknowingly unleashed an otherworldly force of a malevolent nature here. Three teenagers, Wade, Molly, and Byrd, spent time in the caves, unaware of the entity that inhabited them. Now they've been inexplicably drawn back to the site and will confront not only their pasts, but also one another--as combatants in a supernatural war flowing across the globe through the raging currents of the world's rivers...
This preview includes the first three chapters of the supernatural thriller RIVER RUNS RED, published by Penguin/Jove in 2008. Read the book that David Morrell praised as "a fascinating blend of espionage and the occult with several jaw-dropping plot twists and one of the best action sequences I've read in a long time," and about which Christopher Golden said, "In RIVER RUNS RED, Mariotte seamlessly weaves our modern and ancient terrors into a breathless, fascinating novel of magic, murder, and friendship. Mariotte's one hell of a writer, and this is his best work yet!"

"Based on actual government programs, Jeffrey Mariotte's RIVER RUNSRED is a fascinating blend of espionage and the occult with several jaw-dropping plot twists and one of the best action sequences I've read in a longtime."--David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of THEBROTHERHOOD OF THE ROSE and CREEPERS"In RIVER RUNS RED, Jeff Mariotte seamlessly weaves our modern andancient terrors into a breathless, fascinating novel of magic, murder, andfriendship. Mariotte's one hell of a writer, and this is his best work yet!"--Christopher Golden, author of THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN"From creation to the apocalypse by way of El Paso: Jeffrey J. Mariottelures you out onto the surface of a real world that cracks like thin ice, plunging you into the bizarre. More than anything, RIVER RUNS REDreminds me of smart, literate video games like "Fear Effect" and "IndigoProphecy," where you start out investigating a murder and end up trying tosave the universe."--Andrew Klavan, author of EMPIRE OF LIES"A brisk and twisting thriller that builds to an intense climax. Mariotte stirs arich cast of characters into his wicked black kettle, dashes in somesupernatural spice, and serves up a satisfying stew. Mariotte delivers onceagain."--Scott Nicholson, author of THEY HUNGER “With a cast of monsters and madmen, psychics and government spooks,ghosts and (yes) gods, RIVER RUNS RED is a thriller of apocalyptic proportions. Mariotte's latest reads like a clock-slamming game of fastblitzsupernatural chess played out on a board stretching from the dungeons of Iraq to the deserts of the American Southwest. With an endgame fought onthe dark rivers of the human soul, it’s a battle at once mythic and personal...and a surefire checkmate for readers everywhere.”--Norman Partridge, author of DARK HARVEST“Mariotte can flat out write. This is a smart, fast, terrific read. This river runs.”
