Calling out to all “The Girl on the Train” fans! Author Paula Hawkins will be releasing a new novel in summer 2017 :)
Titled ” Into the Water”, Hawkins’ next suspense masterpiece tells a story of murder in an English riverside town, family secrets, and “the slipperiness of truth”. Doesn’t it sound intriguing already?
The description of the book reads:
“When a single mother and a teenage girl each turn up dead at the bottom of the river, just weeks apart, the ensuing investigation dredges up a complicated history.”
“Into the Water” will be Hawkins’ first novel since “The Girl on the Train” (2015), which sold more than 18 million copies worldwide. The book was recently adapted into a feature film starring Emily Blunt as the titular character, Rachel Watson.
In a statement, the 44-year-old writer, who is a former financial journalist, said, “This story has been brewing for a good while. For me there is something irresistible about the stories we tell ourselves, the way voices and truths can be hidden consciously or unconsciously, memories can be washed away and whole histories submerged.”
Her American editor, Sarah McGrath, also added that the upcoming thriller novel will delve deep into the deceitfulness of memory and all the dangerous ways that the past can affect the present and future.
“Into the Water” is slated for release on 2nd May 2017.
