Sometimes a marriage can be a lonely place …
Rebecca Wilding, an archaeology professor, traces the past for a living. But suddenly, truth and certainty are turning against her. Rebecca is accused of serious fraud, and worse, she suspects – she knows – that her husband, Stephen, is having an affair.
Desperate to find answers, Rebecca leaves with Stephen for Greece, Italy and Paris, where she can uncover the conspiracy against her, and hopefully win Stephen back to her side, where he belongs. There’s too much at stake – her love, her work, her family.
But on the idyllic Amalfi Coast, Stephen goes swimming and doesn’t come back.
In a swirling daze of panic and fear, Rebecca is dealt with fresh allegations. And with time against her, she must uncover the dark secrets that stand between her and Stephen, and the deceit that has chased her halfway around the world.
Despite the uneasy tension that Ann Turner manages to make her reader feel in this fabulous novel she also gives the most PERFECT holiday read and an ideal holiday destination.
This book is brilliant, it builds at a easy pace and is a perfect blend of description and tale.
Rebecca is a lady who is having a hard time, accused of a serious crime with a husband she doesn’t really trust, her travel plans make a turn for the worse when her husband Stephen goes missing, presumed drowned.
Ms Turner does a good job of making you think you have guessed the outcome then letting you down gently. I cannot praise her writing and her imagination of plot highly enough.
The Lost Swimmer is an excellent well-played drama, and would make a marvellous TV show. It is an effortlessly and flawless stylish novel and is one I loved reading.
From the start to the end it grips and I for one was happy to sit and read. With a glass of wine and a sunny day, I found The Lost Swimmer to be entertaining and was truly captivated.
