Into the Water
With the same propulsion that captivated millions of readers worldwide in her debut, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins unfurls a gripping, twisting, layered story set in a small riverside town. Once again in Into The Water Hawkins demonstrates her powerful understanding of human instincts and the damage they can inflict.
"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 "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) "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 "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
