The very definition of a pulsatingly entertaining beach read, Something in the Water follows the twists and turns of a married couple contemplating the perfect crime in the sun-kissed waters of Bora Bora. Steadman’s plotting is assured and the revelations relentless, whilst her characters are convincingly drawn. A big fish in an ocean of summer thrillers.
The perfect couple commit the perfect crime in this New York Times bestselling thriller, a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick.
Erin is a documentary filmmaker on the brink of a professional breakthrough; Mark a handsome investment banker with a bright future. They seem to have it all, until Mark loses his job and cracks start to appear in their perfect life.
But they're determined to make it work. They book their dream honeymoon and trust that things will work out - after all, they have each other.
On the tropical island of Bora Bora Mark takes Erin scuba diving. Mark is with her - she knows he'll keep her safe. Everything will be fine. Until they find something in the water.
Erin and Mark decide to keep their discovery a secret -- after all, if no one else knows, who would be hurt? Their decision will trigger a devastating chain of events... which will endanger everything they hold dear.
