➤ The ad­dic­tive new psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller from the au­thor of The Girl On The Train, Into The Wa­ter fol­lows the mys­te­ri­ous death of Nel.

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 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.

Into The Wa­ter by Paula Hawkins is pub­lished by Pen­guin Ran­dom Books Aus­tralia, RRP $32.99. ➤ Af­ter I’ve Gone is the emo­tional new psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller from the num­ber one best­selling au­thor of While My Eyes Were Closed.

On a wet Mon­day in Jan­uary, Jess Mount checks Face­book and dis­cov­ers her time­line ap­pears to have skipped for­ward 18 months, to a day when shocked fam­ily and friends are post­ing heart­break­ing trib­utes to her fol­low­ing her death in an ac­ci­dent.

Jess is left scared and con­fused. Is she the tar­get of a cruel on­line prank or is this a ter­ri­fy­ing glimpse of her true fate?

Among the posts are pho­tos of a gor­geous son she has not yet con­ceived. But when new posts sug­gest her death was de­lib­er­ate, Jess re­alises that if she changes the fu­ture to save her own life, the baby boy she has fallen in love with may never ex­ist.

Af­ter I’ve Gone by Linda Green is pub­lished by Ha­chette Aus­tralia, RRP $29.99.
