Under Currents by Nora Roberts

under currents


From the outside, the house in Lakeview Terrace looks perfect and the Bigelows seem like the perfect family: the respected surgeon father, the glamorous, devoted mother and two beautiful children. But the perfect facade hides dark undercurrents.

Teenager Zane and his younger sister, Britt, are terrorised by their violent father until one dark, brutal night when their father’s temper takes a horrifying turn for the worse.

Over time, Zane moves on and builds a new life for himself but a childhood like that can cast a shadow the length of a lifetime. Can Zane ever really be free of his past? Or could those dark undercurrents rise back to the surface, forcing Zane to fight for his life once again…


I love Nora Roberts. Her books are easy to read and always keep me entertained until the end.  Under Currents will have a very familiar feel to it if you have read any of her thrillers before. If you are reading Nora Roberts for the first time this is a good place to start. The plot rocks along at a good pace and the characters are engaging if slightly forgettable. It is an ideal beach read or airport read.
