In this “fiendishly clever novel,” a woman’s husband vanishes in a historic storm — and new troubles wash up in its wake (Sunday Times)In a small fishing village on the Devon coast, Lucy Locke has built a life that anyone would envy. She and her husband, Daniel, own successful businesses and live with their two children in a picturesque home overlooking the harbor. But everything changes one morning when, following a monumental storm, the family yacht is found empty — and Lucy’s husband is nowhere in sight.As the search for Daniel mounts, so does Lucy’s sense of dread, raised to a fever pitch when another, more terrifying revelation pushes her storybook life to the brink of total destruction. Lucy is reluctantly forced to face a harsh truth: the sea gives life, and just as quickly takes it away. And when the detective on the case uncovers suspicious details that Lucy had hoped would stay buried, she’ll have to confront the nightmarish possibility that she created her own undoing.Beautifully rendered with evocative, atmospheric prose, The Rising Tide is at once a pulse-pounding, inescapably suspenseful thriller and a poignant tale of the power of the natural world. Its characters and settings are sure to stay with readers long after the final page—and after their heart rates finally return to normal.
This book is as exciting as the stormy seaside setting where a happy family is suddenly beset by tragedy. No one is above suspicion except Abraham, an investigator determined to find the truth behind a bizarre and dangerous plot to exact revenge. Kept me guessing right to the end.
Terrible. Repetitive. Bad writing and non relatable characters. Do not waste your time with this book. Not worth it at all.
Had a hard time putting this one down. Well developed plot and characters the ending was a surprise. Would recommend this book.
Just before a massive storm is about to hit their small fishing village, Lucy Locke’s husband Daniel unexpectedly takes their yacht out. When the yacht is recovered at sea, Daniel is nowhere to be found. DI Abraham Rose is assigned to the case, and starts to bring to light things from Lucy’s past that she hoped would remain a secret.Talk about a wild ride! The author did a fantastic job creating the atmosphere of the quaint fishing town and what it feels like to be in an unrelenting storm. As Lucy searches for Daniel, you can feel her dread and anxiety. For me, The Rising Tide started off with a bang, lulled a tad in the middle, and then had my adrenaline pumping towards the end. It is very cleverly plotted and had me guessing until the very end. For most of the book, I wasn’t sure what to think about Lucy, but DI Abraham Rose I loved from the start. He is such an interesting character and adds a lot to the story. This was my first Sam Lloyd novel and I really enjoyed it, and now want to check out his previous book, The Memory Wood. 4 stars.
This book was very well done with a great cast of well developed characters. Nice storyline and POVs. And wow what an intense ending that I did not see coming!Highly recommendThank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book
Lucy had everything until the morning that the family yacht was recovered far out to sea, her husband is missing. Was he on the yacht? Where is he now? What happened? Getting these questions answered will not be so easy as a storm is raging….Many are loving this book while I found it to be good not great. Although I enjoyed it, I wasn’t wowed by it. I had a hard time connecting with Lucy. There are many twists and turns but even those did not push the rating higher for me.As I mentioned, others enjoyed this more than I did, so please check out their reviews.
