Her numb fingers scrabble over upholstery, over metal, over glass, searching for a way out. Water stings her eyes as she’s dragged downward, clinging to her last breath as she’s absorbed into the cold dark below....

When Gloria Carmichael’s body is found broken and bleeding on the sidewalk just days after knocking on Detective Charlie Winters’ door begging for help to locate her father’s will, Charlie’s instinct is confirmed: Her latest case is about more than just a simple family feud. 

The Carmichaels are famous in Salem Island for their large family and charitable work, but, moments before she died, beautiful, trustworthy eldest daughter Gloria called Charlie to say she had uncovered a terrible secret that would break the mystery of her father’s death wide open.

With the voice of her murdered sister ringing in her ears - pushing her to risk everything to bring justice to the innocent - Charlie takes matters into her own hands. She won’t let another family break apart like her own, and she knows the answers she needs are hidden somewhere inside the Carmichael home. 

But as Charlie races to confront her main suspect - a file containing evidence that will devastate the Carmichael family on the car seat beside her - she’s rammed off the road and over the edge of a nearby cliff. Fighting for breath in a sinking car, Charlie has to survive or other innocent lives will be taken. Everyone involved is keeping secrets, but only one twisted soul is prepared to kill to keep theirs....

An addictive crime thriller with twists at every turn, you won’t know what hit you after you’ve finished Girl Under Water. A perfect roller-coaster ride for anyone who adores Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni, and Mary Burton. 

An absolutely gripping crime thriller

Quirky but good PI story

In this 2nd book in the series, we follow Charlie Winters as she solves the murder of a billionaire. Talk about sibling rivalry…the Carmichael adult children are a bunch of jackals! We know that the killer is one of them…but which? You will be surprised.
