*****

Just days before her sister plunged to her death, Jules ignored her call.

Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules must return to her sister's house to care for her daughter, and to face the mystery of Nel's death.

But Jules is afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of this small town that is drowning in secrecy . . .

And of knowing that Nel would never have jumped.

Review quote

The prose is powerful and richly descriptive. As the threads of the plot mesh together and the tension builds it develops into a brooding and complex read that deserves to make a splash in its own right. * Sunday Mirror * It's like PD James wrote an episode of The Wire... A twisting whodunit that leaves you both gratified and surprised (also the best kind)... Not just a brilliant thriller but also a furious feminist howl... * Stylist * Fans of Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train rejoice: her second novel Into the Water is even better. A brilliantly plotted and fast-paced juggernaut of a read that hurtles to a heart-stopping conclusion. * Good Housekeeping (Book of the Month) * Wondering if Into the Water could be as good as The Girl on the Train? It's better. A triumph. * Clare Mackintosh * Paula Hawkins does it again! Into the Water is a moody and chilling thriller that will have you madly turning the pages. A gripping, compulsive read! * Shari Lapena *
