Into The Water is an addictive novel of psychological suspense about the slipperiness of the truth, and a family drowning in secrets.
A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.
Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother’s sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she’d never return.
Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.
With the same propulsion that captivated millions of readers worldwide in her debut, The Girl on the Train, Hawkins unfurls a gripping, twisting, layered story set in a small riverside town. Once again in her new novel, Hawkins demonstrates her powerful understanding of human instincts and the damage they can inflict. Into The Water is an addictive novel of psychological suspense about the slipperiness of the truth, and a family drowning in secrets.
Paula Hawkins says: “This story has been brewing for a good while. For me there is something irresistible about the stories we tell ourselves, the way voices and truths can be hidden consciously or unconsciously, memories can be washed away and whole histories submerged. Then two sisters appeared, and the novel began to form.”
