This instalment picks up a month after the events in The Next Widow, with Dr Leah Wright and Detective Luka Jericho both still coming to terms with the everything that occurred. Their paths cross again, when Luka requests the help of Leah, as the new head of the Crisis Intervention Center, to assist him with his latest case.
I really love the dynamics between Leah and Luka and CJ Lyons has done a fantastic job with their creation. My heart ached for Leah and her daughter Emily, as they continue to struggle with their grief, trying to move on from the tragedy that occurred in The Next Widow. There were many times I just wanted to reach into my Kindle and comfort them both.
I really liked how this time around there was more focus on Luka’s past and how his current investigation blows wide open when details come to hand that it is the work of a serial killer, but not just any serial killer, this one is also claiming to be responsible for the death of Luka’s fiancé seventeen years earlier in what was thought to be a suicide.
CJ Lyons is such a great storyteller and I am so glad that I have now come across her work. She really knows how to get her readers attention and she delivers on everything that I love so much about this genre. I hope at some point to read more of her previous works.
Whilst The Drowned Woman can be read as a stand-alone, I do recommend you reading the first book, The Next Widow, before starting this one. This is to get the full background information on Leah and Luka, but most importantly if you don’t, you will be missing out on another outstanding read!
The Drowned Woman is a fantastic read that will have you completely in its clutches from start to finish. Even though this is only the second book in the series, I am amazed at how quickly I have become attached to it and I can’t wait for the next instalment! It was a pleasure to read and review The Drowned Woman, which I highly recommend.

As the case continues Leah is introduced to Risa Saliba who lived across the hallway from the murder victim and has complex medical issues. Once a famous photographer but now housebound she tells Leah how she is being stalked by someone who claims to have been killing and getting away with it for almost two decades.
A shocking discovery seems to link their serial killer to the death of Luka’s fiancée seventeen years earlier which was previously considered a suicide. As other victims are discovered the race is on to catch a murderer who has gone undetected for far too long and seemingly leaves no trace of themselves. With Detective Jericho sidelined from the investigation and Leah still grieving time is running short to find the necessary clues and then the killer strikes close to home.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and thought I had it sorted a few times, changed my mind, changed it again! The background stories of the two main protagonists were fleshed out a little and the secondary storyline with Leah's daughter Emily and Luka’s nephew Nate was really well done with a very satisfying conclusion. As Leah and Luka have each taken centre stage in one of the first two books I am looking forward to see what comes next for both of them.
I was able to read an advanced copy of this thanks to NetGalley and the publishers. The opinions expressed are my own and I would recommend it to fans of this author and taut police procedurals in general. I have also purchased this book for myself.
Blended and explained with every new thought kept me wondering til the end.
