AOT #468: Tim Johnston Podcasts Descent
Prize-winning, critically acclaimed author Tim Johnston reads from and discusses his debut novel Descent. Written with a precision that captures every emotion, every moment of fear, as each member of a family searches for answers after one goes missing, Descent is a perfectly crafted thriller that races like an avalanche toward its heart-pounding conclusion, and heralds the arrival of a master storyteller.
“Johnston has a poet’s eye for the majestic and forbidding nature of the Rockies, and a sociologist’s understanding of how people act under pressure. He also has a knack for creating characters that the reader will come to care about…Combining domestic drama with wilderness adventure, Johnston has created a hybrid novel that is as emotionally satisfying as it is viscerally exciting.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review
