In this "fiendishly clever novel" (Sunday Times), a woman's husband vanishes in a historic storm—and new troubles wash up in its wake.
In a small fishing village on the Devon coast, Lucy Locke has built a life that anyone would envy. She and her husband, Daniel, own successful businesses and live with their two children in a picturesque home overlooking the harbor. But everything changes one morning when, following a monumental storm, the family yacht is found empty—and Lucy's husband is nowhere in sight.
As the search for Daniel mounts, so does Lucy's sense of dread, raised to a fever pitch when another, more terrifying revelation pushes her storybook life to the brink of total destruction. Lucy is reluctantly forced to face a harsh truth: the sea gives life and just as quickly takes it away. And when the detective on the case uncovers suspicious details that Lucy had hoped would stay buried, she'll have to confront the nightmarish possibility that she created her own undoing.
Beautifully rendered with evocative, atmospheric prose, The Rising Tide is at once a pulse-pounding, inescapably suspenseful thriller and a poignant tale of the power of the natural world. Its characters and settings are sure to stay with listeners long after the sentence—and after their heart rates finally return to normal.
