'Wondering if Into the Water could be as good as The Girl on the Train? It's better. A triumph.' Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author of I Let You Go.


The addictive new psychological thriller from the author of The Girl on the Train, the runaway Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller and global phenomenon.

In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help.

Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind.

But Jules is afraid. So afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of knowing that Nel would never have jumped.

And most of all she’s afraid of the water, and the place they call the Drowning Pool . . .

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, satisfying read that hinges on the stories we tell about our pasts and their power to destroy the lives we live now.

'Paula Hawkins does it again! Into the Water is a moody and chilling thriller that will have you madly turning the pages. A gripping, compulsive read!' Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

‘Fans of Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train rejoice: her second novel Into the Water is even better. A brilliantly plotted and fast-paced juggernaut of a read that hurtles to a heart-stopping conclusion.’ Good Housekeeping (Book of the Month)

‘A brooding and complex read that deserves to make a splash in its own right.’ Sunday Mirror

‘A twisting whodunit that leaves you both gratified and surprised (also the best kind) . . . Not just a brilliant thriller but also a furious feminist howl . . .’ Stylist

‘Paula Hawkins effortlessly follows the success of The Girl on the Train with this immersive novel . . . Told from multiple points of view, this is clever and twisty fiction with a ghostly edge.’ Red

    A bit slow to start with, but once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down.

    Was looking forward to reading this, sadly disappointed. Too many characters and a predicable ending. Gutted

    By Moggie15
    Paula Hawkins' second stand-alone novel, after Girl on the Train, this is a real 'edge of the seat' read, with unexpected twists along the way and, inevitably, a final unexpected revelation. The author has chosen to write in shortish chapters, told from the point of view of various characters - an interesting approach, if difficult to follow at times, as the many different storylines interact, digress and come together again. I found I had to regularly carry out searches to remind me of who was who, especially if coming back to it after a day or two.
