Canadian author Cheryl Kaye Tardif gives away her thriller The River for free at

For many months now, I've been working on a special promotion to give away electronic copies of my bestselling conspiracy thriller The River* for free on, an offshoot of Canadian bookseller Indigo Books & Music (and Chapters & Coles bookstores).

Over the next week or so, you'll see my critically acclaimed thriller advertised on Shortcovers in various ways. This free offer includes the complete novel, front and back matter too.

"Cheryl Kaye Tardif specializes in mile-a-minute pot-boiler mysteries, usually set in Western Canadian locales. Her latest, The River, is a whodunit centred around mysterious happenings on the Nahanni River up north." --Edmonton Sun

So what's The River about?


The South Nahanni River area of Canada's Northwest Territories has a history of mysterious deaths, disappearances and headless corpses, but it may also hold the key to humanity’s survival―or its destruction.

Del thought her father was long dead. But someone from her past says otherwise. Now she and a group of near strangers embark on a perilous mission...

Seven years ago, Del Hawthorne’s father and three of his friends disappeared near the Nahanni River and were presumed dead. When one of the missing men stumbles onto the University grounds, alive but barely recognizable and aging before her eyes, Del is shocked. Especially when the man tells her something inconceivable. Her father is still alive!

Gathering a group of volunteers, Del travels to the Nahanni River to rescue her father. There, she finds a secret river that plunges her into a technologically advanced world of nanobots and painful serums. Del uncovers a conspiracy of unimaginable horror, a plot that threatens to destroy us all. Will humanity be sacrificed for the taste of eternal life?

At what point have we become...God?

"Mix some Michael Crichton with a touch of Dean Koontz..." says Amanda Richards, Top 100 Amazon Reviewer

"The River is a gripping combination of suspense, sci-fi and adventure...a cross between Michael Crichton's Timeline and Dan Brown's Angels & Demons."―Matt Scofield, a fan

You can read The River on your computer and on various reading devices, including the iPhone. There's even an app for Shortcovers that you can download for free.

Special thanks to Michael Serbinis, Michael Bowles and Ben Dugas, who have helped me get The River in front of more readers with this special, time-limited offer.

*The River is currently being considered by a film director for a major motion picture.


Read THE RIVER on now.

Or download the ePub version of THE RIVER, which requires the free Adobe Digital Editions download first.

I hope you enjoy!
