They said her death was a tragic accident. And I believed them … until now. Carmen is happily married to Tom, although she knows she’ll always live in the shadow of another woman—the mistress who ended his first marriage: Zena. Mercurial, mesmerizing, manipulative Zena—a woman who, Carmen begins to discover, had the potential to incite the darkest of emotions. Zena, who drowned in the sea late one night. Zena seems ever-more present, even in death, and when Carmen unknowingly stumbles on evidence that her husband has not been telling her the whole truth, she can’t shake her unease. As she uncovers documents and photographs, a very different tale than the one Tom has led her to believe begins to unfold, and she finds herself increasingly isolated and paranoid. As the twisted events of that night begin to come to light, Carmen must ask herself if it’s really a truth worth knowing … even if it destroys her and the lives of the people she loves most.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Absolutely gripping, I raced through Undertow at the speed of knots—if you’ve got a journey to go on, an appointment to wait for, then pick it up and watch the time disappear.” Rosamund Lupton, New York Times bestselling author
“Echoes of Daphne du Maurier’s classic Rebecca reverberate throughout British author Heathcote’s impressive debut…[An] intense psychological thriller.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“With gothic hints of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, Heathcote’s first novel features a fast-paced, twisty plot…The resolution will leave readers shocked and satisfied.” Library Journal
“The setting…is evoked with just the right mix of rural appeal and lurking danger to make Carmen’s isolation and insecurity seem credible. [A] fine piece of psychological suspense.” Booklist
“A tense, gripping thriller that kept me turning the pages long into the night, desperate to know whom to trust. My head ached from changing my mind so often.” Tamar Cohen, author of The Fallout
