Summary:

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. 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.

    Excellent book! Keeps you guessing and thinking throughout the whole thing! The narration is easy to listen to and the varied cast makes it easier to remember which character is narrating at the time.

    This was just okay. It was not that mysterious I could see “who done it” early in the book.

    Good book. It was a little confusing in the beginning because of all the different characters and the fact that flip back-and-forth for almost the entire book. But overall a pretty good read. I’m interested to see the movie and see how they will handle moving from one character to another. If you liked Girl on the the Train, this is another good one, but be aware that they are not similar at all. Enjoy!

    The books was entertaining, full of dark intrigue and interesting plot, but I felt I never really knew the characters. Didn't quite believe the story, or the character Jules behavior. And though the readers were wonderful, having two different people reading one character was confusing.

    Good book but very hard to follow. If you can understand the story line then you will have an easy time understanding

    Into the Water is a highly addictive read. The book is set in Beckford, a small British town obsessed with its dark past. When a single mother, Nel Abbott, is found dead in the river, her estranged sister Jules arrives to care for Nel’s teenage daughter Lena. As Jules learns more about her sister’s apparent suicide in the town’s Drowning Pool — and the many mysterious deaths that preceded it, including Lena’s best friend — she’s pulled further and further into a shadowy world where tragedy lurks, memory is unstable, and things are never as they seem. The novel, it must be said, contains all the elements that made The Girl on the Train famous in the first place. The narrative transfixes; its short chapters and multiple perspectives pull the reader in immediately, and refuse to let go until the very last page is turned. Into the Water is well-written, well-structured and well-crafted
