Publisher's Summary

The author of the number-one New York Times best seller and global phenomenon The Girl on the Train returns with Into the Water, her addictive new novel of psychological suspense.

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 15-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 listen 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.

Good not great

So many characters, I found myself going back to the beginning of chapters.

I actually had a hard time enjoying this book.

Confusing at first but worth it in the end

This book isn't like any audiobook I've listened to in the past. There were several narrators and, at times, the book was hard to follow.

Once I got the hang of it, the book was riveting and kept me interested until the very end. I wish there was a sequel because it was so interesting!

ok but not great

Struggled to get into this one. Felt like too many characters to follow and poor character development made it hard to like any of them.

Really boring

Jeez! What was the point? The outcome wasn’t at all what the premises of the story line. I thought there might be some link to the spirits of the women that drowned.

Not as good overall as girl on the train.

The ending though, redeemed it quite well. Wasn't expecting that. Definitely worth your time to read/listen.

suspenseful until the end

I enjoyed this book. It left you guessing until the very end. At times the graphic sadness was almost to much but I enjoyed it overall.

Confusing but Interesting

Very confusing at first but once I got all the characters straight it was a good story and a good twist at the end.
