Woman in the Water by Katerina Diamond


I’m alive. But I can’t be saved . .

When a woman’s body is found submerged in icy water, police are shocked to find she is alive. But she won’t disclose her name, or what happened to her – even when a second body is discovered. And then she disappears from her hospital bed.

Detectives Adrian Miles and Imogen Grey follow their only lead to the home of the Corrigans, looking for answers. But the more they dig into the couple’s lives, the less they understand about them.

What’s their connection to the body in the river?

Why have other people they know been hurt, or vanished?

And can they discover the dark truth of their marriage before it’s too late?

My Review

I was unaware when I began this book that it was actually the fifth book in an ongoing series but thankfully for me it reads just fine as a standalone novel, but saying that I really want to go and read the first four books now just to check and because this one was so good! 

A young woman is found beaten and left for dead on the banks of the river, with no memory of what had happened to her and even worse, no memory of who she even is leads Detectives Adrian Miles and Imogen Grey into an investigation they will never forget.

Set in Exeter in Devon which is where I live really helped connect with this book and it isn’t somewhere that comes up very often so for that reason alone it will stand out in my memory but as well as that some of the subject matter in this will also make it stand out form the crowd for its own reasons. To say it made for some uncomfortable reading would be putting it politely but it was done with compassion and understanding without being sensationalised. You will understand once you read it but I don’t want to say for fear of taking away the twist and shock from future readers!

It is one of those books that is quite tricky to review without spoilers, there is not a huge amount of dead bodies or gore but there is a huge amount of intrigue and depth to the story. It is fast paced and will keep you glued from the first page to the very last as well as you crying out for the next book in the series, I know I certainly am!

Shocks and a twist that will spin your head, this is one book you really must read to believe!

Woman in the Water will be published on 11 November 2019 and is available for preorder now.

A big thank you to the author Katerina Diamond, publishers Avon Books UK and NetGalley for my advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest and independent review.
