Description

Two gone. One whose past could kill her.

When the body of Lola Evans is found in a local park on a cold winter's morning, Detective Alex King and her new recruit Chloe Lane are called in to lead the hunt for the killer.

Days later, a second girl goes missing. It seems the two shared a troubled history, and were members of the same support group. Who is the monster preying on these vulnerable girls?

As the detectives start to piece together the clues, Chloe realizes that she too is in danger - as she uncovers secrets about her own brother's death, which someone will kill to keep hidden.

Alex and Chloe are soon fighting for their lives, and in a race against time to reach the next victim, before it's too late.

Chilling and totally compelling with an utterly surprising twist, The Girls in the Water is perfect for fans of Robert Bryndza, Sarah Hilary, and Patricia Gibney.

Great narrator and strong female characters

I liked this first book. It was engaging, both lead characters are interesting and strong, and Katie Villa’s soothing voice made it a truly enjoyable listen. What I liked the most was the lack of whiney banter between the leads and the strong and supportive relationship between Kate and her superior. I am a huge fan of female detective books and what usually puts me off is the constant unfair treatment of the superior officers and how the female detectives are treated as irrational, emotional and outsiders. This one was a welcomed exception! Great start! Now on to book 2!

meh...<br />

Narrator was mediocre. Characters were underdeveloped. Ending felt stilted. Just never really got into it.

Tell not show?

Oh dear.
Where was the editor? “Everything” is told not shown and not only that , it is told again and again, as if the reader is not able to remember anything for more than a couple of minutes.

Almost wish it were longer.

I didn't see the ending coming. Good and not so predictable. looking forward to the next read by author.

The Girls in the Water...A Good Read

This was a pretty good book and also enjoyed the audio. I didn't see who killed Lucas...surprised. The ending was good, but I felt like I missed something. Probably going to be a book 2. I would recommend this book and the audio.

Captivating

One of the best books I have listened to. I am a fan of Katie Villa’s narration and came across this book searching for her. I will definitely follow Victoria Jenkins now.

Good read.

This was a good read, really picked up at the end. I enjoyed the English accent if it was in Welsh it may have been hard to understand.
