ACROSS THE WATER

by Alexandra, Ingrid

Everyone has secrets. But what happens when yours pull you under.

THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW meets THE WIFE BETWEEN US meets THE HAND THAT ROCKED THE CRADLE, Ingrid's second novel explores the darker side of motherhood, the pressure to conform, and how women's choices shape their fate.

In a remote, boat-access only house, Liz Dawson's lifeline to the real world is her window, where she watches the people who live in the three identical houses that sit side by side across the creek. But it's the middle house Liz finds herself drawn to most: the beautiful young mother, Delilah Waters, and her baby.

When Dee and her baby go missing, last seen by the murky waters of Oyster Creek, it is a suspected murder-suicide. After all, it's no secret that Dee Waters never wanted children. She wasn't coping with the baby. Everyone in the town believes she leapt to her death, taking her child with her. Everyone except Liz.

Wrestling with her own demons, Liz risks everything to uncover a truth that becomes more complex with every twist. Of all people, Liz knows that just because someone is a reluctant mother, it doesn't mean they don't love their child. And it doesn't mean they're capable of murder... does it?

Prior to acquiring her degree in education at Macquarie University, Sydney, Ingrid Alexandra studied journalism and professional writing at The University of Western Sydney. She is an active member of Sisters in Crime (AU). Ingrid also writes Young Adult romance under another name and was long-listed for The Ampersand Prize. THE NEW GIRL was her first psychological thriller.

It is most certainly a page turner... I would certainly recommend this to anyone who likes a dark, psychological thriller that keeps you guessing.

Quote: Belli

This story pulled me in from the first page! With fabulously complex characters and a dark, twisty plot, this is a psychological thriller you won't want to put down. A cleverly woven together tale - I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
