"Brigitte's crime-writer ex-boyfriend turns up in town to promote his new novel, in which a woman is found dead : murdered : in a country lake. Hours later, Brigitte watches the police pull a body from the water near her Gippsland home. Her husband, a country cop now, is at the scene, though it's not his investigation; he's only helping the Melbourne Homicide Squad. But there's something he's not telling Brigitte. Moving to the country was supposed to be safer than the city. And they were supposed to be happier. With her personal life spiralling out of control once more, and fearing her family is in danger, who can Brigitte turn to? And what if she makes the wrong choice?"
"Tania Chandler is a Melbourne-based writer and editor. Her debut novel, Please Don't Leave Me Here, was selected for State Library Victoria's Summer Read program. Dead in the Water is her second novel, and is a sequel to Please Don't Leave Me Here."
