Her numb fingers scrabble over upholstery, over metal, over glass, searching for a way out. Water stings her eyes as she’s dragged downward, clinging to her last breath as she’s absorbed into the cold dark below…
When Gloria Carmichael’s body is found broken and bleeding on the sidewalk just days after knocking on Detective Charlie Winters’ door begging for help to locate her father’s will, Charlie’s instinct is confirmed: her latest case is about more than just a simple family feud.
The Carmichaels are famous in Salem Island for their large family and charitable work, but, moments before she died, beautiful, trustworthy eldest daughter Gloria called Charlie to say she had uncovered a terrible secret that would break the mystery of her father’s death wide open.
With the voice of her murdered sister ringing in her ears —pushing her to risk everything to bring justice to the innocent —Charlie takes matters into her own hands. She won’t let another family break apart like her own, and she knows the answers she needs are hidden somewhere inside the Carmichael home.
But as Charlie races to confront her main suspect—a file containing evidence that will devastate the Carmichael family on the car seat beside her —she’s rammed off the road and over the edge of a nearby cliff. Fighting for breath in a sinking car, Charlie has to survive or other innocent lives will be taken. Everyone involved is keeping secrets, but only one twisted soul is prepared to kill to keep theirs…
An addictive crime thriller with twists at every turn, you won’t know what hit you after you’ve finished Girl Under Water. A perfect read-in-one-sitting rollercoaster ride for anyone who adores Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Mary Burton.
Our determined private detective Charlie Winters, is driven to catch the bad guy more than most. Still haunted by her sister’s death, she is compelled to uncover the Carmichael’s family secrets, not just to solve Gloria’s murder, but to prevent anybody else from being hurt. There is just one thing, can she save herself in time to do it?
Girl Under Water is the second instalment in the Charlie Winters series and is another thrilling addition to it. Whilst it can be read as a standalone, I do encourage you to read the first book, First Girl Gone, not just to gain knowledge of Charlie’s background etc, but also because it is another great read.
Full of complexities, Charlie is a loveable character and has been added to my already long list of favourite female leads! This is a testament to the authors, who have masterfully created a strong and relatable woman. They really do just bring her to life perfectly.
Girl Under Water is a gripping page turner that kept me reading long into the night. A thrilling read that is both dark and humorous, in the form of Charlie’s sister Allie who’s voice she hears, which provides some lighter moments. This really is a great series and I can’t wait for the next instalment.
