Something in the Water (Steadman) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
[A] deftly paced, elegantly chilly thriller… Steadman brings… wit, timing and intelligence to this novel…Something in the Water is a proper page-turner, not just a novel produced by a celebrity to whom some wine-weakened publisher said at a cocktail party, "You should write a book!"
Sara Lyall - New York Times


[T]hreats and increasingly bad decisions accelerate with Bourne-like velocity…. Although not all of the plot gambles prove equally successful, daring choices, such as opening with a scene of the desperate Erin digging a grave, mark Steadman as a newcomer worth watching.
Publishers Weekly


Documentary filmmaker Erin and banker Mark are on a glorious Bora Bora honeymoon when they discover a bag stuffed with glittering valuables, which changes their lives in a way that's not so good. A writing debut from the actress who played Mabel Lane Fox in Downton Abbey.
Library Journal


This debut’s opening hook, which jumps ahead in the story to reveal a shocking outcome, teamed with Erin’s spunk and the threat of Russian mobsters, creates irresistible suspense—of both the what-will-happen and the how-did-that-happen varieties.
Booklist


(Starred review) With unreliable characters, wry voices, exquisite pacing, and a twisting plot, Steadman potently draws upon her acting chops.… A darkly glittering gem of a thriller from a new writer to watch.
