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 Lionel Shriver, Emma Donoghue and Christos Tsiolkas.

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 helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

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