Down by the River by Karen J Mossman

It’s back! After being unpublished for almost a year, Down by the River has had a rewrite and now back on sale.


Shelby’s vision brings her home to the place she tried so hard to escape from.

Her best friend, Mary-Jo, has gone missing. When her body turns up by the river, Shelby’s visions become more disturbing.

Who is the killer?

Why is her vision so incomplete?

Rawden Hughes, the town’s sheriff, blighted their childhood. Did he make a claim on her that went wrong? Or could it be Mary-Jo’s drifter boyfriend, who was driven out of town for a crime never proved?

Returning to her childhood home, Shelby has to face her drunken Pa and the crumbling old house she grew up in.

Can she confront her past, whilst dealing with the guilt of leaving behind her best friend?

With the truth revealed, will it finally set her free?

‘A dark and foreboding tale to enthral you.”

What the Reviewers Say:

‘A great little read I finished in one sitting. Perfect for busy days! Well written and atmospheric, and is about Shelby, a young girl who fled her drunken father after the death of her mother. She’s back in town to visit her friend Mary – Jo but discovers she is missing. When her body is found by the river, all fingers point to her bad guy boyfriend, Ricky. But all is not as it seems and Shelby is determined to discover the truth. A great read which left me wanting more!

This is the first story I have read by this author. For such a short story, it was very deep. The characters were relatable and real to life. I’d love to find out more about these characters.

Karen J Mossman did an excellent job of appealing to my emotions and keeping me on the edge of my seat. Only problem – I didn’t want it to end.
