There are a few things a reader can expect from a Larry Long book: It will be both intriguing and exciting, delve deeply into social issues, and include an unexpected twist. In his latest effort, The Secret on Riverwind Road, Long is up to his old tricks in this mystery about a heinous crime committed against an innocent young girl. Set in a small town in 1958, Long touches on a range of issues that continue to be relevant today, including racial discord, wrongful convictions, and the struggle for an individual to do the right thing. The Secret on Riverwind Road, out of the three books by Long that I have reviewed (including A Summer Out of Time and Flight to Avoid), offers the most surprises and the deepest exploration of cultural norms. I was completely surprised by the revelation of the true killer in this story, and also a bit disappointed by the outcome of Lyle and Nadine’s relationship.
The Secret on Riverwind Road is a combination of mystery, suspense, and romance that challenges readers to examine an array of social issues.
