The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller 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.

In what has been a massive success for first time thriller writer Paula Hawkins, The Girl on a Train is a novel packed full of suspense. Highly revered by Stephen King himself, the psychological thriller went straight in at number one on the New York Times Fiction Best Sellers of 2015, not being knocked off for thirteen weeks. Further praise for this book is given by Dreamworks acquiring the film rights to it, and the film adaptation will be ready for release in October this year. A first person narrative details the chilling story from the viewpoint of Rachel, Anna and Megan. Rachel finds her life wrought in jealousy, despair and alcohol abuse following the breakdown of her marriage to Tom. After being tormented by learning Tom not only had a mistress, Anna, but has now remarried and had a child with her too, Rachel plunges into alcoholism and loses her job. The pain of not being able to conceive a child with her husband herself drives Rachel to extreme lengths, taking her old route to work on the train so as not to rouse suspicion of losing her job, and also fantasize whilst passing her former married home. The story is wrought with jealousy, despair and follows many chilling twists and turns as each character's story begins to intertwine and Rachel, Anna and Megan become linked to each other, in macabre circumstances. It becomes clear that Rachel's drinking blackouts have clashed with her obsession with Megan, a woman Rachel has taken to watching along with her husband and imagining their perfect life together. When Megan is reported missing on the news, a bloodied Rachel feels she may be involved and the story becomes embroiled in police investigation and darker twists and turns. In turmoil, Rachel begins trying to find out more about Megan's disappearance and in doing so, gives herself a new focus instead of drinking. She becomes close with Megan's husband, Scott in order to try and learn more and in doing so, lies to him to get closer to him. In a horrific discovery, Megan's body is found and also was evidently pregnant. The fog of Rachel's alcohol abuse begins to clear and she recalls seeing Megan entering Tom's car, thus revealing an affair between them to his new wife Anna. Upon being confronted by Anna, Tom confesses the murder to her by the motive of her threatening to speak out about her pregnancy. In a fast paced turn of events, Tom begins attacking Rachel to silence her, but Rachel stands up for herself. She finds her strength and kills Tom with a corkscrew, with Anna helping and creating alibis to create a story of self defence.
