Undertow

Undertow


My husband’s lover. They said her death was a tragic accident. And I believed them . . . until now.

Carmen is happily married to Tom, a successful London lawyer and divorcé with three children. She is content to absorb the stresses of being a stepmother to teenagers and the stain of ‘second wife’. She knows she’ll always live in the shadow of another woman – not Tom’s first wife Laura, who is resolutely polite and determinedly respectable, but the lover that ended his first marriage: Zena. Zena who was shockingly beautiful. Zena who drowned swimming late one night.

But Carmen can overlook her husband’s dead mistress . . . until she starts to suspect that he might have been the person who killed her.

Reviews

Absolutely gripping, I raced through Undertow - if you've got a journey to go on, an appointment to wait for, then pick it up and watch the time disappear
Rosamund Lupton, Richard and Judy bestselling author
A tense, gripping thriller that kept me turning the pages long into the night, desperate to know whom to trust
Tammy Cohen, author of When She Was Bad
An immersing story, reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca . . . The "hidden currents" that keep us submerged in Undertow are not only those of the sea, but the fear and suspicion that swell catastrophically through the most intimate relationships
Observer
The market is absolutely flooded with psychological thrillers at the moment, and it takes something really special to stand out. Take a bow, Elizabeth Heathcote, because this chilling, twisty and hugely atmospheric tale is standing head and shoulders above the rest . . . This slow-burn tale sneaks up and grabs you by the throat, right when you least it expect it. Brilliant!
Heat
Buckle up for this gripping psychological thriller
