In this tautly written, vividly compelling novel, Christopher Wakling explores the subjective nature of relationships, truth and perception, and the illusion that we are in control of our lives.

If you like Christopher Wakling you might also like to read books by Christos Tsiolkas, Emma Donoghue and Lionel Shriver.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The Undertow by Christopher Wakling

Wilson Taylor is a successful man: the owner of a thriving high-risk business, he has also raised his beloved daughter Anna almost single-handedly since infancy. But nothing can prepare him for the call he receives from Doctor Jo Hoffman, explaining how Anna, now nineteen and travelling abroad, has been gravely injured while swimming in Australiaâs Byron Bay.

Wilson rushes to the other side of the world, ready to assess the situation and fix it. And though the police are convinced it was an accident, Wilsonâs own investigation convinces him someone is to blame. Who was Anna's travelling companion and why did he abandon her? Who is the sinister blackmailer threatening Wilson . . . and how did they get those photos?

Interspersed with Anna's own account of her travels, Wilsonâs quest takes him far from his daughter's bedside and deep into the Australian bush. But how much does he really know – or want to know – about his own child?

Lovereading always comes up with great suggestions and has introduced me to enjoyable books and new authors to discover.

Gaynor Passmore

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Sian Spinney

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

At Lovereading there are fabulous books available in every genre, with great reviews to help you pick the right book for you.

Teresa O'Halloran

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
