Elizabeth Haynes, author of the bestselling debut Into the Darkest Corner, returns with a tense, gripping thriller about a woman caught in an underworld of corruption and murder...
Genevieve has finally achieved her dream: to leave the stress of London behind and start a new life aboard a houseboat in Kent. She’s found the perfect vessel: Revenge of the Tide. She already feels less lonely; as if the boat is looking after her.
But the night of her boat-warming party, a body washes up, and to Genevieve’s horror, she recognizes the victim. She isn’t about to tell the police, though; hardly anyone knows about her past as a dancer at a private members’ club, The Barclay. The death can’t have anything to do with her. Or so she thinks...
Soon, the lull of the waves against Revenge feels anything but soothing, as Genevieve begins to receive strange calls and can’t reach the one person who links the present danger with her history at the club. Fearing for her safety, Genevieve recalls the moment when it all started to go wrong: the night she saw her daytime boss in the crowd at The Barclay...
Dark, sexy, and exquisitely chilling, Dark Tide is another superb mystery from acclaimed rising star Elizabeth Haynes.

The danger seems a bit distant, but the story is compelling. Haynes sometimes isn't forthcoming with details relevant to the story until it's too late. Terrible for Genevieve, but great for the reader.Read Full Review of Dark Tide: A Novel

If you like the thriller genre or if you enjoyed Into The Darkest Corner, I recommend it. As much as I liked the story, I had a few qualms about the way the sex industry is portrayedRead Full Review of Dark Tide: A Novel
I finished the book quickly and marginally enjoyed it but would not call it a great read nor would I pass it on to friends as recommended reading. Although it held my interest while I read it, what's most memorable about Dark Tide is how profoundly unremarkable it is.Read Full Review of Dark Tide: A Novel
...the character, Genevieve. Her decision-making skills irritated me. She could have done so much better and saved herself all the ache and the problem.Read Full Review of Dark Tide: A Novel
