Woman in the Water
Mystery Thriller Murder
Harper Collins, Avon Books
When a woman’s body is found submerged in icy water, police are shocked to find she is alive. But she won’t disclose her name, or what happened to her – even when a second body is discovered. And then she disappears from her hospital bed. Detectives Adrian Miles and Imogen Grey follow their only lead to the home of the Corrigans, looking for answers. But the more they dig into the couple’s lives, the less they understand about them. What’s their connection to the body in the river? Why have other people they know been hurt, or vanished? And can they discover the dark truth of their marriage before it’s too late? Smart, shocking and twisty – perfect for fans of Cara Hunter and Karin Slaughter.
I really thought I knew how this would end about
three-quarters of the way through, but I was so wrong!
The ending is a 5 star for me, but overall, I thought the story
needed tightening up and a general edit, which is why it gets a 4.
For once this police procedural demonstrates just how long
it can take to solve a murder. The intricacies of police procedures that must
be followed and the fact that people don’t always work through the night, but
go home at 5 and come in at 9 even when they are trying to solve a murder. Much
