Review

"A psychological thriller that captivated me from page one. What unfolds makes for a wild, page-turning ride! It's the perfect beach read!"--Reese Witherspoon (Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine book pick)

"Arresting . . . deftly paced, elegantly chilly . . . [Catherine] Steadman brings . . . wit, timing and intelligence to this novel. . . . Something in the Water is a proper page-turner."--The New York Times

"With unreliable characters, wry voices, exquisite pacing, and a twisting plot, Steadman potently draws upon her acting chops. . . . A darkly glittering gem of a thriller from a new writer to watch."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Captivating . . . daring . . . The threats and increasingly bad decisions accelerate with Bourne-like velocity. . . . Steadman [is] a newcomer worth watching."--Publishers Weekly

"An unbearably tense debut with a knockout premise, Something in the Water had me hooked from the very first sentence. Thrilling and thought-provoking, it's the perfect beach read. I devoured it!"--Riley Sager, New York TImes bestselling author of Final Girls

"This is a book that puts you right into the shoes of the characters and has you asking: What would I do? You may find yourself increasingly uncomfortable with your answers. An unputdownable story that poses the age-old question of how well we can ever know someone else--and, perhaps even more important, how well do we know ourselves?"--Amy Engel, author of The Roanoke Girls

"This debut's opening hook, which jumps ahead in the story to reveal a shocking outcome, teamed with Erin's spunk and the threat of Russian mobsters, creates irresistible suspense--of both the what-will-happen and the how-did-that-happen varieties."--Booklist

"We all think we know our own boundaries. We all think we'd do the right thing. But what if the opportunity for the perfect crime appeared right in front of your eyes? How many rules would you break in pursuit of the perfect life? Catherine Steadman's debut novel, Something in the Water, is as scary as it gets. This terrifying morality tale is guaranteed to keep you up at night." --Michelle Richmond, New York Times bestselling author of The Marriage Pact

"Pure adrenaline: I swallowed this book whole."--Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said

"I absolutely loved Something in the Water, a stunning debut. . . . Superbly written, clever and gripping."--B. A. Paris, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors and The Breakdown

"As frightening as it is funny, Something in the Water feels like a thriller for our times, a caper with a dark heart."--Louise Candlish, author of The Swimming Pool and Our House

"A taut and smart thriller, Something in the Water is a fast-paced examination of the slippery slope and precariousfoundations our middle-class lives are built on, and a sensitive examination of a marriage under pressure. Catherine Steadman is a genuinely unique voice in crime fiction."--Gillian McAllister, author of Everything but the Truth and Anything You Do Say

"Brilliant."--Catherine Isaac, author of You Me Everything --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
