When the submarine departed, none of the ten people on board knew it would turn into a nightmare.

Trapped on the sunken vessel and unable to escape, one of them is discovered dead. The tension escalates as the survivors realise there is a murderer among them, who is preparing to strike again and again…

With mounting desperation, people begin to turn on each other. While they struggle to identify who is responsible, each must contend with their own past and the secrets they are hiding.

But who is who and what is happening?  And which of them will be next to die?

Below the surface, the pressure is building and time is running out…

Betsy Reavley is back with a novel of such impact and power; nothing is clear, the tension so strong it holds you from the first page to the last. Pressure delivers on every level, leaving breathless readers in its wake.’  Bestselling author of Captor and 34 Days Anita Waller



I have read a few of this author’s books and they have all been tense, psychological thrillers that play on your worst nightmares – well this one is no different – who would want to be trapped on a Submarine for a start – not me!

I loved the suspense that the book built up and whilst I did guess at about the half way point who was responsible for the killings it didn’t detract from the story for me as there was plenty of tense points still to come.  This book has some fascinating characters and a brilliant writing style.

Betsy is one of those authors that writes books I know I will enjoy.  4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon!
