Introduction

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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 authorsthink Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbottwho 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.

  "Not worth the time"by pblake (see profile) 06/26/17

Very disappointing and hard to follow. There were a lot of characters, and it was difficult to keep the story line straight.

I had a hard time getting started reading it as there are several characters! I actually made a list of characters for reference and that really helped me. Part two really took off and all of it tied together!... (read more)

 
  "Starts slow, but ends with a punch!"by Homewithatwist (see profile) 05/21/17

It was tedious at first to keep track of all the characters, and I even made a cheat sheet of each person to help me, but once I knew all the players it picked up speed. A great rush to the very end!... (read more)

  "A Good Try"by ebach (see profile) 05/15/17

INTO THE WATER is complex the way the best thrillers are. Various mysteries are going on, all interrelated, resulting in a smooth storyline.
