It promised to be a sensational case. When Lt. Colonel Michael Smith is suspected of the murder of his beautiful, well-connected wife Colonel Elaine
Dawson-Smith, the story makes front-
page news. A witness spotted Lt. Colonel Smith driving away from the scene of
the crime, but the big problem in this
case is the viability of the witness. And
its up to JAG officer Major Carly Samuels
to get at the truth.

Carly is none too impressed with witness Ryan McMann after their first meeting. An angry and hostile Ryan has
no interest in getting involved any deeper
in the case. A former hockey star who
fell from grace when he was convicted
on drug charges and implicated in the
drug overdose death of a groupie, Ryan spotted the Lt. Colonels car when he was on his way to prison to help teach illiterate inmates to read as part of his parole.

Carly suspects Ryan knows more
than he is telling and she is right. For
as Carly soon learns, there is a very sordid connection between Maxwell Air Force Base and the prison. And Mother Nature throws a spanner into the case by unleashing a flood that threatens Carly
and Ryans lives.

Considering the current climate of sexual peccadilloes, the plot of Ms. Lovelaces newest thriller could have been taken from front-page headlines. RIVER RISING provides all the tension and intrigue you have come to expect from the amazing Ms. Lovelace. (June, 320 pp., $5.99)
