The breathtakingly twisty new thriller – guaranteed to shock and surprise
I’m alive. But I can’t be saved . . .
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.

This case was one of the most disturbing that Adrian and Imogen have ever had to work on. I followed the plot thinking that I knew in which direction the author was heading but there was so much more to the case than I had been expecting. And I found myself far more emotional as well when, in an often difficult to read scene, one of the characters has to go through an unthinkable ordeal. This was a hard hitting and unexpected twist that had me gasping in horror at the rawness of the reactions of the people involved. It really did add a very different perspective to a crime that isn’t written or talked about often but beware as it really doesn’t pull any punches.
I raced through Woman In The Water, craving answers to all the questions I had. And that ending!! It just left me desperate for more Miles and Grey so I hope there is still more to come from them. I love this series and the relationship between the two main characters is constantly evolving, keeping it fresh and exciting.
Woman in the Water is highly recommended by me.
I thought the story was good up to a point. There was a very shocking part that actually gave me palpitations I was so angry for the victim. If you read this novel you will know which part I mean. I feel the story has been left open to pursue some wrongs that need to be put right in the next novel probably.
The thing that stops me giving it 5 stars was I felt that it was a little disjointed and repetitive in places. But well worth a read.
Detective Sergeants Adrian Mills and Imogen Grey are trying to keep their romance secret, mindful it may lead to one of them being transferred. When Adrian saves the life of a woman found in water, Imogen worries he is becoming too involved. He, at times "an unpredictable variable", is taking her plight too personally. Truly memory lost or circumstances requiring urgent attention? Great danger awaits, Imogen with every reason to be worried.
For quite a while this seemed just another murder mystery, but a totally unexpected and disturbing event made everything more meaningful. Ahead, a psychological insight into what it is like to be the victim of action most harrowing. Katerina Diamond learned much from such victims, her portrayal of the intense emotions resulting ringing true.
Overall reactions are mixed. Some may feel the villain too much of a caricature - he believing himself above the law, able to bend all, including the police, to his will. (A main reason to read on is the hope he receives his comeuppance, preferably in the most horrible way possible.) Some may have reservations about the value of the woman's italicized contributions. Do they offer much that is new or simply slow down the pace? She may also forfeit much sympathy, her attitude constantly hindering progress on the case.
In short? An interesting read, especially after veering off in an unexpected direction.
