Description


An enigmatic man haunted by guilt and a dark secret from the past . . . A beautiful young woman consumed by a desire that could destroy her lifelong dream . . . A madman who stalks them both in retribution for a murder they know nothing about. They are all part of one of the most critically acclaimed suspense novels of the year.

THE KNOWLEDGE OF WATER

"Lushly erotic . . . The centerpiece of Sarah Smith's elegant period novel is the torrential flood that nearly swept Paris away in 1910. . . . An exquisite stylist, she observes her characters in the most intimate detail, defining them with witty precision and placing them in a rain-drenched portrait of Edwardian Paris that could hang in the Louvre."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Compelling . . . Engrossing . . . Envelop[s] the reader with history, mystery, and passion."
--The Boston Herald

"A haunting tale  . . . An accessible mix of historical speculation, literary allusion, and suspense, [this novel] could become this year's Name of the Rose."
--Entertainment Weekly

"As satisfying a mystery as the Mona Lisa's smile."
--USA Today
