Cheryl Kaye Tardif ~ Canadian Mystery Author

The River, a "mile-a-minute potboiler myster[y]," is an exciting and terrifying thriller that will make you question your existence and your future.

How far do we go until we’ve gone too far?

The Nahanni River has a history of mysterious deaths, disappearances and headless corpses, but it may also hold the key to humanity’s survival―or its destruction.

Seven years ago, Del Hawthorne’s father and three of his friends disappeared near the Nahanni River and were presumed dead. When one of the missing men stumbles onto the University grounds, alive but barely recognizable and aging before her eyes, Del is shocked. Especially when the man begins rambling about a secret river and time travel. Then he tells her something inconceivable. Her father is still alive!

Gathering a group of volunteers, Del travels to the Nahanni River to rescue her father. There, she finds a secret underground river that plunges her into a technologically advanced world of nanobots and painful serums. Del uncovers a conspiracy of unimaginable horror, a plot that threatens to destroy us all. Will humanity be sacrificed for the taste of eternal life?


And at what point…have we become God?

Reader Reviews for "The River"

Reviewed by dennis batchelder 12/6/2008
great characters, tons of action, cool technology

Michael Crichton fans will enjoy a ride on THE RIVER: like Crichton, Cheryl Tardif's suspense/near science fiction is all about what happens when you mix way-cool technology with bad people.

Biotechnologist Dr. Lawrence went missing on a northern Canadian river trip seven years before. His anthropologist daughter Del is surprised when one of his traveling companions drops two bombshells: Lawrence is still alive, and bad guys are after him. He gives Del some clues to help her find her father, and this sets her on a quest to find her father and neutralize the bad guys.

And that's the setup to the guts of the story: the quest turns into a river trip with a set of well-developed characters, all carrying their own emotional baggage and conflicts with them to this northern Canadian river. And when Del arrives, Tardif feeds us geeks with references to nanobots, time travel, and the chase to find an elixir of life. Del's romantic adventures are fun and full of conlicts, and the ethical dilemmas are presented and handled well.

I found THE RIVER to be a great mix of adventure, suspense, romance, and technology, and I can't wait to read more of Tardif's works.

New review from Edmonton Sun (June 15th, 2006)

"Local author Cheryl Kaye Tardif specializes in mile-a-minute pot-boiler mysteries, usually set in Western Canadian locales. Her latest, The River, is a whodunit centred around mysterious happenings on the Nahanni River up north. An earlier Tardif book, the independently released Whale Song, will be published in early 2007 by Kunati Books." --Graham Hicks, Edmonton Sun
