< b>A New York Times Bestselling Author< /b>< P>After spending a year in prison, Ralph's plans for his first night of freedom are to make someone accountable - his former wife - the woman he blames for his fate. His next step is to travel to Ohio to find his ex-wife's house on Mad River Road. Also in Florida, Jamie Kellogg begins to assess her life: a twenty-nine-year-old woman in a dead-end job, with an ex-husband in Atlanta, a married lover in the hospital, and a virtual stranger in her bed. But this stranger is everything the previous men in her life weren't: tender, attentive and adventurous - and he has planned a road trip to visit his son, who lives with his mother on a street called Mad River Road.
From the Publisher:
While an ex-con sets out to exact revenge against his former wife for her role in his imprisonment, a woman in Florida is convinced by a seductive stranger to quit her dead-end job and cut off her judgmental sister in order to pursue a more exciting life. By the author of See Jane Run. (Suspense)After spending a year in prison, Ralph Fisher has explicit plans for his first night of freedom: tonight, someone will be held accountable. He goes to murderous lengths to obtain the address of his former wife -- the woman he blames for his fate and against whom he has sworn vengeance. Determined to bring her to his idea of justice, Ralph's next step is to travel from Florida's sandy beaches to Dayton, Ohio, where his ex-wife is struggling to make ends meet on Mad River Road.

Also in Florida, Jamie Kellogg wakes from an agonizing nightmare of her mother's funeral, and assesses her life: a pretty but unaccomplished twenty-nine-year-old woman in a dead-end job, with an ex-husband in Atlanta, a married lover in the hospital, and a virtual stranger in her bed. But this stranger is everything the previous men in her life weren't: tender, attentive, and adventurous. After convincing Jamie to quit her miserable job and ditch her judgmental, perfectionist sister, he proposes a romantic getaway. While Jamie wonders if this thrilling man might finally be her Prince Charming, they plan a road trip to visit his son, who lives with his mother on a street called Mad River Road....

As riveting and beguiling as Joy Fielding's previous New York Times bestselling novels, Mad River Road is a novel about courage, truth, and the strength that comes only when you believe in yourself.

Annotation:
An ex-con's fury threatens three troubled women in this gripping work of suspense. Ralph Fisher holds his former wife fully responsible for the year he spent in prison, although it was his brutal abuse of her that landed him there. Newly released, Ralph coerces his ex-wife's new Dayton, Ohio, address from her friend, Gracie, before strangling her, and then heads off to claim his revenge. Then lonely, lost Jamie meets a marvelous guy in a bar who persuades her to join him on a journey to Ohio. Meanwhile, two single mothers in Dayton attempt to forget past troubles and get on with their lives, unaware of the danger bearing down on them.
