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.

I really do like this book, the going was getting good at first and then it started to lag interest toward the middle. I felt as though some characters POV were irrelevant and the plot twist at the end, Whoa!

Liked the book but it was pretty dark.

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
