Books Read: Tasmina Perry - Deep Blue Sea

Beneath the shimmering surface lies a dark secret...

Diana and Julian Denver have the world at their feet. With a blissful marriage, a darling son and beautiful homes in London and the country, Diana's life, to the outside world, is perfect. But nothing is as it seems...

When Julian dies suddenly and tragically, Diana is convinced there is more to it than meets the eye. She calls on the one person she had never wanted to see again - her sister, Rachel.

A former tabloid reporter, Rachel appears to be living the dream as a diving instructor on a Thai island. The truth is she's in exile, estranged from her family and driven from her career by Fleet Street's phone-hacking scandal.

For Rachel, Diana's request opens old wounds. But she is determined to make amends for the past, and embarks on a treacherous journey to uncover the truth - wherever it may lead...

Having read all of Tasmina Perry's previous books, I couldn't wait to read her latest book Deep Blue Sea and I wasn't disappointed.

Diana and Julian Denver had the perfect life, or at least that's what it looked like to the outside world, but when Julian is found dead Diana's whole world begins to unravel as she struggles to accept the circumstances of his death.

Rachel is happy with her new life as a dive instructor in Thailand with business partner Luke so is stunned when her sister Diana turns up out of the blue asking her to help with her investigations into Julian's death.   Rachel, an ex-journalist who fled the UK after a phone hacking scandal, is initially reluctant to get involved but soon she finds herself following leads to try and uncover secrets that others are determined to keep hidden.  But will the truth ever be uncovered?

This book was typical Tasmina Perry at her best and had me hooked almost from the first page, alright it might not have as much glitz and glamour as some of her earlier books, but there's plenty of mystery, intrigue and plot twists that more than make up for it.  If you're looking for a gripping read this summer then I'd definitely recommend that you add this book to your list.

I'd like to thank Caitlin at Headline for sending me a copy of this book to review.  Amazon links: Trade Paperback or Kindle
