We’ve got the third title in our Simon & Schuster Canada Book Club. Put on a large pot of tea, because this one’s another page-turner!

From the Globe and Mail bestselling author of Still Mine comes a new thriller, Still Water. Amy Stuart’s latest novel follows Clare and Malcolm as they hunt for a missing mother and son in a town that is drowning in deception—Clare may be in her gravest danger yet.

How do you find the truth in a town full of secrets?

Clare has to find them.

Sally Proulx and her young boy have mysteriously disappeared in the stormy town of High River. Clare is hired to track them down, hoping against all odds to find them alive. But High River isn’t your typical town. It’s a place where women run to—women who want to escape their past. They run to Helen Haines, a matriarch who offers them safe haven and anonymity. Pretending to be Sally’s long-lost friend, Clare turns up and starts asking questions, but nothing prepares her for the swirl of deception and the depth of the lies.

Did Sally drown? Did her son? Was it an accident, or is their disappearance part of something bigger?

In a town where secrets are crucial to survival, everyone is hiding something. Detectives Somers and Rourke clearly have an ulterior motive beyond solving the case. Malcolm Boon, who hired Clare, knows more about her than he reveals. And Helen is concealing a tragic family history of her own. As the truth surges through High River, Clare must face the very thing she has so desperately been running from, even if it comes at a devastating cost. Compulsively gripping and twisty, Still Water is a deep dive of a thriller that will leave you breathless.

Marissa Stapley, author of Things to Do When It’s Raining (the second book in our Simon & Schuster series) calls Still Water “instantly captivating, mysterious and relevant—Amy Stuart has done it again!” We trust her opinion!
