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.

The author has taken what should have been a solid mystery story and turned it into a diatribe saturated with misandry (pun intended). There isn't one decent male character in this book, only caricatures to despise. Patrick, the arrogant, abusive and judgmental patriarch. Shaun, the weak and self-deceiving son. Mark, self-indulgent and self-pitying and undeserving of mercy. Robbie, the popular and athletic high school jock who simply took what he wanted, now gone to seed. The only male character who was spared was Josh who was too young even for this author to denigrate. There were other male characters in the background, but they too were either deeply flawed or entirely voiceless.

On the other side were the more numerous female characters who were unfailingly portrayed as either heroic or properly deserving of sympathy. This "caricaturization" of her characters coupled with her dabbling with psychic phenomena make this a poor follow-up to the author's first novel, The Girl on the Train.
