While swim team mom Annie chafes over the latest hi-tech bathing suits for her daughters, considers her drifting marriage and mourns the loss of a brother to suicide, a serial killer strikes in this cleverly constructed, suspenseful and perfect for summertime read. — Amy Palmer
“The first thing you notice about Murphy's new novel is the hypnotic cadence of her prose. It flows like the water, like the young swimmers and their families around whom the story turns. This book is at once a suspenseful murder mystery as well as a meditation on what it means to love fiercely as a parent and what it is like to be female in a body starting to show its age, longing for passion and desire that seems long gone. Murphy has the knack of finding the essence of the thousands of tiny moments and inner thoughts that fill our days, and writes about them with a clarity that makes the reader say 'Yes, yes, yes!'”
