Into the Water

Into The Water is an addictive novel of psychological suspense about the slipperiness of the truth, and a family drowning in secrets. With the same propulsion that captivated millions of readers worldwide in her debut, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins unfurls a gripping, twisting, layered story set in a small riverside town.

About the author

Paula Hawkins is the author of the global bestseller The Girl on the Train, which received worldwide critical acclaim and has sold over 18 million copies worldwide since first publication in January 2015 [to December 2016]. Now a major hit Hollywood film starring Emily Blunt, the movie enjoyed a higher UK opening than Gravity, The Martian and Gone Girl.

A word from Paula

This story has been brewing for a good while. For me there is something irresistible about the stories we tell ourselves, the way voices and truths can be hidden consciously or unconsciously, memories can be washed away and whole histories submerged. Then two sisters appeared, and the novel began to form.

Get involved

Tune in to Simon Mayo’s Drivetime show on Monday 22 May to hear a live interview with Paula.
