A quietly dramatic novel, ‘Deep Water’ thrusts questions forward, and I found myself asking ‘what would I do?’ as I read. Several interlinked stories weave their through and around a clinical trial into obesity, and the search for a cure for a rare blood disorder. Daniel, a lawyer specialising in patents, and his wife Rachel, have opposing thoughts on the morality of a potential cure for their daughter, while researcher Katie finds suspicious incidents mounting up at the laboratory where she works. This is a fairly short novel, yet Christine Poulson ensures the clear, concise writing style still paints a vivid picture. It really does feel as though this could be a real situation, yet there is a subtly intensity to the storyline. ‘Deep Water’ prods and provokes, it highlights issues, yet still is a tense and captivating tale. ~ Liz Robinson

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

The first lawyer on the case is dead, and a vital lab book is missing.

Then the unimaginable happens, and they face a moral dilemma that threatens everything. Meanwhile young researcher Katie Flanagan suspects something is very wrong in the lab. But knowledge is dangerous when someone is playing a perilous game...
