New York Times best-selling author and Mary Higgins Clark Award winner Karen Harper is a master of the romantic suspense novel. In Deep Down, she takes listeners to Appalachia, where a missing persons case leads one woman back toward the man of her dreams. A young Jessie Lockwood often strolled the woods with her mother Mariah near their rural Kentucky home, keeping tabs on the rare ginseng plants tucked in the shadows. Now grown and living in Lexington, Jessie returns home when Mariah is reported missing. She reconnects with Sheriff Drew Webb, who she’s always secretly loved, and the two launch their investigation. But even as Jessie and Drew grow closer, their efforts to uncover the truth about Mariah’s disappearance could tear everything apart. While the romantic tension simmers, the plot keeps twisting in this breathtaking tale that will captivate listeners from start to finish. Narrator Barbara McCulloh’s riveting performance strikes the perfect balance between affairs of the heart and matters of life or death.
