Paula Hawkins’s smash-hit debut novel, The Girl on the Train, has sold almost 20 million copies worldwide and been adapted into a movie starring Emily Blunt. You've probably heard of it.
Well, Hawkins is back with a new book, Into the Water, and psychological thriller fans everywhere are going bonkers with excitement.
Set in the northern England village of Beckford, Into the Water tells the story of a series of mysterious drowning deaths (some suicide, some not), all occurring at a local river known as the “Drowning Pool.”
The most recent was that of Nel Abbott, a single mother who had been working on a book about the Drowning Pool at the time of her death. Her estranged sister Jules returns to Beckford to watch after Nel’s 15-year-old daughter, Lena, and doesn’t believe that her free-spirited sister could’ve taken her own life. So begins an amateur investigation.
