The addictive new psychological thriller from the author of The Girl on the Train, the Waterstones championed, runaway Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller and global phenomenon. ‘Please’ She sinks. By the time they drag her out the second time her lips are the blue of a bruise, and her breath is gone for good. In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help. Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind. But Jules is afraid. So afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of knowing that Nel would never have jumped. And most of all she’s afraid of the water, and the place they call the Drowning Pool… Described by the Sunday Mirror as 'A brooding and complex read that deserves to make a splash in its own right’ Paula Hawkins’ follow-up is a multi-layered story that speeds along 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. In Into the Water Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, satisfying read that hinges on the stories we tell about our pasts and their power to destroy the lives we live now. “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.” - Paula Hawkins

Too many different perspectives made this hard to follow. Gave up less than half way through.
