Publisher's Summary

From the author of the best-selling Some Day I'll Find You comes a novel of dark suspense set in the Lake District, where, beneath the inviting water of the lakes, danger and death are waiting.
The summer of 1976 was unprecedented in living memory. Days of blazing sunshine bled into weeks and months. In the Lake District, Cumbria's mountains and valleys began to resemble a Grecian landscape. People swam in delightfully tropic waters to cool off. But barely three feet below the surface, the temperature remained just a degree or so above freezing. As the summer blazed on, the drownings began....
What if someone wanted to take revenge? To remove an abusive, controlling partner from their life? When and where better to stage a murder and pass it off as an accidental drowning?


What the Critics Say

"An authentic and exciting story. The perfect summer read." (Clare Mackintosh, author of the best-selling I Let You Go)

Over too quickly

Escapism but unconvincing

I chose this book as I wanted a change of subject matter and something light and entertaining. I'm afraid that the author spoiled things by reading too fast. A mistake made frequently by non professional actors. Other than that it was an enjoyable story albeit with characters who don't always ring true.
