Into the Water
By Paula Hawkins
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER FOR MYSTERY/THRILLER
An addictive new novel of psychological suspense from the author of #1 New York Times bestseller and global phenomenon The Girl on the Train.
“Hawkins is at the forefront of a group of female authors—think Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbott—who have reinvigorated the literary suspense novel by tapping a rich vein of psychological menace and social unease… there’s a certain solace to a dark escape, in the promise of submerged truths coming to light.” —Vogue
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.
With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.
Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.
Loose ends1By EvilrhodaThere were a couple things that were never explained, which bothered me. It was good but the ending needed more information
Hard to follow1By Kim0930It was very confusing to follow the different characters. Each chapter is told from a different characters point of view. Very disappointed because I liked Paula’s other work.
Capturing5By WYR all day girlEvery little twist this book had was so capturing... the character list can be confusing at first but once you know everybody it’s hard to not fall in love with this story
Amazing Thrill5By BrittdeanA thrilling mystery that has you questioning everything up until the very end. Highly recommend.
Most anticlimactic thriller I’ve ever read1By Ticked off TexanIf you’re looking for suspense, look elsewhere.
Good read4By SdfrdeghfrjedI wish more things could’ve been explained, but the story was good. Not as bad as everyone’s saying. The ending should’ve been more.
Another incredibly written suspense novels!!5By kaykaybean13Paula Hawkins books keep getting better and better. I’m impatiently waiting for the next one! Extraordinary talent! Phenomenal characters and plot lines.
Disappointing1By Ceci beeVery hard to read. Characters changed from 1st to 3rd person oftentimes. Two many characters and poor plot between past and present. I loved Girl on the Train and the author would follow suit with this book. I don’t recommend.
Too many narratives1By DogkrazyToo many narratives. Too confusing. Not interesting. Stopped caring.
Disappointed1By crashlynatorThis is the first book I will not be able to finish. Incredibly hard to follow. Jumping characters and from 1st to 3rd person, it’s way too confusing. Such a let down, the girl on the train was so much better.
