'I can't take my eyes off the water. Can you?'It's summer when Elm Hill lido opens, having stood empty for years.
For Natalie Steele - wife, mother, teacher - it offers freedom from the tightly controlled routines of work and family.
Especially when it leads her to Lara Channing, a charismatic former actress with a lavish bohemian lifestyle, who seems all too happy to invite Natalie into her elite circle.Soon Natalie is spending long days at the pool, socializing with new friends and basking in a popularity she didn't know she'd been missing.
Real life, and the person she used to be, begins to feel very far away.But is such a change in fortunes too good to be true?
Why are dark memories of a summer long ago now threatening to surface? And, without realizing, could Natalie have been swept dangerously out of her depth?Praise for The Swimming Pool'Exquisitely written and addictively dark.
