"... 'Stained River' is an exciting blend of the paranormal, mystery and vengeance, much recommended."- The Midwest Book review

More About the Author


I am from Haverhill, MA where I grew up, went to school and met my wife. Linda, and I now live in Glastonbury, Ct. close to where three of our four children live. I have a masters degree from Northeastern University, Boston, MA and an undergraduate degree from Merrimack College, No Andover, MA. I enjoy golf, chess, computers and reading.
Recently, I completed and published my second book, Stained River. My first, Cold Water Crossing, was published in January of 2009. It is factually based on a true New England double murder that occurred in 1873. In May, 2009, I began work on Stained River, a novel of intrigue and adventure, set in the remote Amazon. It is fast paced and woven around topics found in today's news stories.

The contrast between the world of a Wall Street executive and the leader of an Amazon Jungle tribe couldn't be more different, but that is what makes this book so exciting. The way Connery and Teman-e work together to avert an environmental disaster is endearing and the author's well thought out plot to take down Castelo Branco comes together like a well-oiled machine. I didn't want the book to end and would love to read a sequel focusing on Connery's former life on Wall Street and his relationship with his wife before their divorce. This book is fast paced can be easily read in a weekend. Very pleased with my purchase.

Wonderful book! If you like mystery, intrigue, murder and friendship then this book is for you. I was taken away by the friendship of the 2 main characters. Two people from two very different parts of the world work together and earning the respect of one another. One of the best books I have read. Fast moving and kept me completely engrossed. Kept me guessing until the very end. I highly recommend this book.

OK, this guy is two for two as far as I'm concerned. This is the second book of his that I've read and he never seems to miss a beat. Of all the books I've read this past year, this one has to be my favorite. I took it along for a long weekend thinking I would read some here and there, but I wasn't able to put it down and spent most of the weekend reading it (my apologies to the wife and kids). Well played Mr. Faxon, keep up the great work. I Look forward to your next book.

Very interesting story. I learned a lot about these tribes. Not sure if people today are in a worse situation.

Pretty cool concept for a book although it stretched the realm of reality just a bit. I love books that put you in a "what if it was me" situation, and this book certainly did that. Has a nice, easy pace to it and it's hard to put down at times.

Format: Paperback
You know right off the bat in this book that something very interesting is about to happen to the main character. The author, David Faxon, does a very good job of setting up his story and getting the reader involved in the plot.

The plot is quick and the writing itself is very good. The only thing I took issue with in this novel, was the decision to make every character have some kind of problem that stopped them from being very likable. While I certainly understand that a good character needs to be flawed, for me, it seemed at times that these characters were almost too flawed, and I couldn't choose on to identify with.

Otherwise, this is fabulously written. The story, in and of itself, is intelligent. Although this is fiction, there is some truth in it and it brings to light some very important issues that the reader can't help but contemplate during the time they spend with this novel.

There are parts of this book that I found I could completely lose myself in. The descriptions used to describe the rainforest and the animals are incredibly beautiful and paint a mental picture not to be rivaled. I liked the suspenseful nature of this story, where you are never certain what will happen next and there is danger around every turn.

I would recommend this book to others that enjoy a thrilling and at the same time thought-provoking read.

I loved this book!! I got it as a freebie at kindlebuffet.com and thought I'd give it a try. I am so happy that I did! I will look forward to reading another one of his books. I couldn't put it down and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. It's obvious that he did a lot of research on the Amazon and its indigenous tribes. Really fascinating.....

This is the second book I've read by David Faxon. It was a little different than what I usually read, but it was recommended by a friend. I'm glad I took the advise.
