Down to the River is a collection of twenty crimes stories that take place on or near American rivers from some of the strongest voices in crime fiction writing today. As these stories show, rivers are not only sources of life; they can also be scenes of murder and revenge. Puja's story, "Where are the Boats?" is included in this collection.
All twenty stories were donated by the writers to show their support for American Rivers, an organization that truly understands the importance of American rivers and waterways in the national identity. The authors and American Rivers believe that rivers connect the country as a whole and need to be protected and preserved for future generations.
