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.
Haynes follows her well-received debut, Into the Darkest Corner (2011), with an intense psychological thriller. Genevieve Shipley made good money at her software sales job in London, but dancing at an exclusive gentleman's club was more lucrative. She succeeded in earning enough money to quit both jobs and now lives on a houseboat in a Kent marina. Her first party on the boat ends abruptly with her finding the body of lap dancer Caddy Smith, the only friend Genevieve had at the Barclay Club, floating in the water nearby. Genevieve believes she was the real target, and that the Barclay owners are after the package she agreed to hold for the club's bouncer with whom she had a brief relationship and who's now unreachable. A convincing portrayal of a woman who's both na ve and self-confident elevates the solid plot, which alternates between the present and the past when Genevieve chose to ignore the illegal goings-on at the club.

Worth the read
Loved this book! Bought after finishing into the darkest corner.
Not what I thought
Into the darkest corner was so good I bought this book and let's just say this book does not even come close to being as good! Very dull story from start to finish
I pre-ordered this book because I LOVE " Into the darkest corner" by the same author very much. Well, what a big disappointment. None of page turning, gripping but stupid characters, stupid plot. I've read 3/4 of the book so far and I don't think I'll be ale to finish it.
