PRIZE OF THE WEEK
➤ 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.
