THE GRIPPING, TWISTY PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE FROM THE AUTHOR OF RICHARD & JUDY BESTSELLER THE OTHER PASSENGER
'A novel that redefines the term "unputdownable"' HEAT
One summer can change everything . . .
In the heady swelter of a suburban summer, the Elm Hill lido opens.
For teacher Natalie Steele, the school holidays are always spent with her husband Ed and daughter Molly. But not this year.
Despite Molly's extreme phobia of water, Natalie is drawn to the lido and its dazzling social scene, led by glamorous Lara Channing. Soon she's spending long days with Lara at the pool and intimate evenings at her home.
Real life, and the person she used to be, begins to feel very far away.
But is the new friendship everything it seems?
Or has Natalie been swept dangerously out of her depth?

Gripping from start to finish, it wrapped itself around me and swept me along in its wake. I loved it and simply did not want it to end
As languidly seductive as summer itself, this is a tense, unsettling tale about the secrets and lies submerged beneath the smooth surface of a leafy London neighbourhood lido. Bravo, Louise Candlish!
The Swimming Pool is a slow-burning and thought-provoking read, and the last few gripping pages had me immediately reaching for the beginning
