The first book in a brand-new series featuring New York Times bestselling author Denise Swanson’s beloved Scumble River setting and characters, Dead in the Water is a gripping mystery that won’t let you go until you’ve turned the last page.

A twister, a kidnapping, and a murder―oh my! Scumble River may never be the same.

For school psychologist Skye Denison, there’s certainly no place like home. When a violent tornado devastates her small hometown of Scumble River, she can’t see how the community will ever recover―especially since town councilman Zeke Lyons appears to have perished in the twister.

But things get even worse for Skye when her police chief husband, Wally, disappears in the midst of investigating Zeke’s death, and evidence arises pointing to foul play. Did Zeke really die in the storm, or was he murdered? And could Wally be next on the criminal’s hit list?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Rejoice, Scumble River fans! Skye and Wally and the whole gang are back—and Denise Swanson proves once again that she is among the top writers of the genre. With more twists and turns than a tornado—a real tornado!—Dead in the Water is fast-paced and fun, with a smart, savvy protagonist, some truly sinister villains, a suspenseful plot, and a delightfully satisfying ending. I can’t wait to visit Scumble River again!”

    Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author

  • “It’s a pleasure for Swanson’s readers to welcome back her Scumble River characters, even though she throws them into danger from the first chapter to the last. A tornado, a corpse and a kidnapping make life in Scumble River challenging for Skye Denison-Boyd as she awaits the birth of her first child, but fans of Swanson’s series know she can handle it all. Swanson’s strongly drawn characters and vivid descriptions make this welcome return of her Scumble River series a pleasure to read.”

    Sheila Connolly, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Based on this delightful entry, this cozy series should have a long, bright future.”
