Description :

Language: English Brand New. From Yannick Murphy, award-winning author of The Call, comes a fast-paced story of murder, adultery, parenthood, and romance, involving a girls swim team, their morally flawed parents, and a killer who swims in their midst.In a quiet New England community, members of swim team and their dedicated parents are preparing for a home meet. The most that Annie, a swim-mom of two girls, has to worry about is whether or not she fed her daughters enough carbs the night before; why her husband, Thomas, hasn t kissed her in ages; and why she can t get over the loss of her brother, who shot himself a few years ago.But Annie s world is about to change. From the bleachers, looking down at the swimmers, a dark-haired man watches a girl. No one notices him. Annie is busy getting to know Paul, who flirts with Annie despite the fact that he s married to her friend Chris, and despite Annie s greying hair and crow s feet. Chris is busy trying to discover whether or not Paul is really having an affair, and the swimmers are trying to shave milliseconds off their race times by squeezing themselves into skin-tight bathing suits and visualizing themselves winning their races.When a girl on the team is murdered at a nearby highway rest stop the same rest stop where Paul made a gruesome discovery years ago the parents suddenly find themselves adrift. Paul turns to Annie for comfort. Annie finds herself falling in love. Chris becomes obsessed with unmasking the killer.With a serial killer now too close for comfort, Annie and her fellow swim-parents must make choices about where their loyalties lie. As a series of startling events unfold, Annie discovers what it means to follow your intuition, even if love, as well as lives, could be lost. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : 'A dark, menacing book...a literary thriller of the highest order' Julia Crouch 'THIS IS THE WATER is this year's GONE GIRL: unexpected, immersing, challenging and up-to-the-minute relevant. A must read' Manda Scott This is a novel about a woman. About a mother. About a marriage. About a murder. In the brightly lit public pool the killer swims and watches. Amongst the mothers cheering on their swim team daughters is Annie. Watching her two girls race, she's thinking of other things. Her husband's emotional distance. Her lost brother. The man she's drawn to. Then she learns a terrible secret. Now her everyday cares and concerns seem meaningless. Annie knows she has to act. Above all, she must protect her children. Compulsively readable, it takes readers on a journey where none could guess the final outcome.

Critique: 'A gifted storyteller with an unusual, hypnotic voice... truly original, it casts a spell that lingers in your mind' ( Daily Mail)

A dark, menacing book... a literary thriller of the highest order (Julia Crouch)

THIS IS THE WATER is this year's GONE GIRL: unexpected, immersing, challenging and up-to-the-minute relevant. A must read (Manda Scott)

'The resulting intimacy you develop with each character takes this book beyond compelling into seriously addictive: you feel as they feel, be it fear, loss, longing or that most gripping of all feelings, love. Do not miss it' ( Oprah.com)

'An upmarket thriller... Murphy is less interested in deviant psychology than in portraying everyday lives of quiet desperation, and in this she succeeds triumphantly' ( Saturday Telegraph)

'An inventive thriller... Murphy proves skilful at generating a proper climate of dread, forcing us to focus our fears on the killer's next victim' ( New York Times Book Review)

'A pulse-racing thriller' ( Wall Street Journal)

'Obscenely suspenseful. . . . In Murphy's hands, the structure becomes almost hypnotic - and when the story hits full speed in the final quarter, the suspense becomes almost excruciating' ( Publishers Weekly)

Yannick Murphy, while being one of our most daring and original writers, is first and foremost an exquisitely attuned observer of human behaviour ( Dave Eggers)

Magical and harrowing ( Publishers Weekly (on HERE THEY COME))

A wonderful novel. Original, suspenseful, funny and profoundly moving.... I plan to recommend it to everyone I know ( Geraldine Brooks (on THE CALL))

A hell of a book... It will haunt you ( Frank McCourt)
