Author Note: The book title (mis)spelling is an intentional
stylization of the complete placename and the rationale behind this is
revealed in the text itself. If you are resistant to learning why simply
because the title bugs you, then this may not be the book for you but
I'm glad you stopped by in the first place.
Part 1 of the sweeping Hurricane Katrina saga. Experience the tangled mystery, the brutal intensity, and the searing emotion beneath the dark swirling surface of MISISIPI.
When a childhood tragedy and its bloody aftermath catch up with her, a woman's husband must fight the forces from her past, and the impending threat of Hurricane Katrina, to save her.
Scott Jameson is almost relieved when he comes home one night and discovers Julianna has left. It's the inevitable end to the slow disintegration of a once idyllic marriage. He can almost accept it.
Until the discoveries happen - and the questions surface.
What has Julianna really been doing in the cemetery beside their house?
Who is the unfamiliar friend in a secret photograph?
What lies buried in the basement all these years? And why?
Most important - why truly did their relationship falter and can it be put right?
And when Scott sets out for answers, he won't be the only one seeking them; because Julianna is the eye of a storm that's been building for almost twenty-five years. She's drawing them all to her center: Scott, the mysterious man on Scott's tail, and the two arch enemies from her shocking past who caused her to run in the first place, from the city by the sea at the mouth of the river...
New Orleans, where Julianna is going home for the last time.
And Hurricane Katrina is coming for the first.
MISISIPI by MICHAEL REILLY - a story about the enduring capacity of love to save and the unendurable power of the past to destroy.
