Rolling in the Deep is a crime thriller by Arthur Kevin Rein. It's been a year since Sam Robel moved to the small town of Walnut Creek in northern Wisconsin together with his family, who had bought a local resort after the tragic death of his older brother. While fishing for a local legend in Red Wolf Lake, Sam and his friend Max Cherhasky find a belt buckle that they later realize could be the key to solving a potential murder. However, delving further into the mystery puts Sam, Max, and their mutual friend Diane directly into potential conflict with the wealthy and influential Manticore family, who are keen to take over the Robel family resort. Complicating matters is Max's father, who is the subject of a federal investigation. Will the three friends be able to maintain their bond through these struggles?
As far as coming-of-age stories go, Rolling in the Deep is a refreshing addition to a much-traversed genre. Filled with suspense, mystery, and plenty of thrills, Arthur Kevin Rein's novel is an absolute page-turner. This is a story about friendship, young love, and the baggage from family history that can seep into the lives of children. The characters leap off the pages as Rein makes sure to flesh out each of them with distinct traits and personalities that make them riveting to read. The narrative feels realistic, and the intricate plot is full of twists and turns you never see coming. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and readers who love original coming-of-age tales will do so too.
