With a prologue called "The Escape" that is descriptively written with tension and you unsure as to whose point of view it is... it left with me with dread, horror and full of fascination as to what had happened prior to these events.
Without a pause, this tempted me to read on.
The book is then set to three months earlier. To find out what has happened to make the events in "The Escape" unfold.
J.A. Baker schemes and maneuverers the story forward in a chilling and effective way.
We are introduced to Phoebe and her disabled husband Martyn, as they move in to their new home opposite Anna.
Anna is looking for a new friendship with two growing boys and a husband she sometimes feels surplus to requirements and is seeking some female company.
All the way through this read I had an uncomfortable chill, Phoebe is an extremely complex character with her standoffish ways, she wasn't as warming to Anna, but with her home life you find out why.
I found Undercurrent to be a riveting read, and was absorbed in the characters and where the plot was heading...
An extremely gripping read that was bound in mystery and atmosphere. One book I highly recommend you to read. Set aside time, once you start you will be drawn in and find it difficult to put the book down.
