Across the Water
Secrets can pull you under... 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 Myall Lake, 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? The Woman in the Window meets The Hand that Rocked the Cradle, Across the Water explores the darker side of motherhood, the pressure to conform, and how women's choices shape their fate.

Strangers
The Sunday Times bestseller and Richard & Judy Book Club author of Sleep returns with her most gripping book yet. Three strangers. Three secrets. And one big lie. First there's Ursula. Unable to face up to the tragedy that consumes her, her world has shrunk to an almost unrecognisable state. But a string of missing people - and her housemate's permanently locked basement door - set off a chain of events that she soon has no control over. Then Alice, who's in the first flush of her relationship with Simon. A man she met by chance, and who seems perfectly normal - except that he flinches at the slightest touch. And Gareth, who lives a humdrum life as he struggles to cope with his mum's increasing dementia. She can't remember much about her days - not even when a postcard from his long-dead father comes through the door. None of these three strangers have ever met, but their worlds will soon collide in the most dramatic way possible, as the lie that has been told is finally answered for... Prepare yourself for the new gripping, unforgettable read from the Sunday Times and Richard & Judy Book Club bestseller.
