The River Thief is a rich, action- adventure about guilt, grace, and receiving life as a gift. Diz is a reckless teenage drifter living life on the run along the Snake River. Abandoned by his parents as a child, he looks out for himself, takes whatever he wants and runs. Jaded and determined to answer to no one, Diz lives a life of thievery and never looks back. Things change when Diz floats into a small town where he is confronted by an unflappable old man named Marty and his guarded granddaughter, Selah who try to help him. When Diz robs an enormous pile of cash from a local drug-dealing crazy, he becomes the target of two vicious killers. With more money than he knows what to do with, and criminals at his heels, Diz is horrified to realize he has put the only people he's ever cared about in imminent danger.
