This is the Water, Paperback


'Addictive...A delicious mix of sexual reawakening and moral entanglement' Telegraph 'A gifted storyteller with an unusual, hypnotic voice...truly original, it casts a spell that lingers in your mind' Daily Mail This is a novel about a woman.

About a mother. About a marriage. About a murder. In the brightly lit public pool the killer swims and watches.

Amongst the mothers cheering on their swim team daughters is Annie.

Watching her two girls race, she's thinking of other things.

Her husband's emotional distance. Her lost brother. The man she's drawn to. Then she learns a terrible secret. Now her everyday cares and concerns seem meaningless.

Annie knows she has to act. Above all, she must protect her children. Compulsively readable, it takes readers on a journey where none could guess the final outcome.
