Considered “one of the masters of psychological fiction in America” (San Francisco Chronicle), Kate Wilhelm sews up an irresistibly chilling puzzle that will keep listeners captivated until the very end.

When Jud Connors, a successful writer, is found murdered in his isolated cabin in the Oregon woods, his daughter Abby sees her world start to fall apart. Who could have wanted her father dead? And why? More puzzling is how anyone could have gotten to the cabin undetected. Was the murderer someone Jud knew?

As Abby embarks on her own investigation, she soon realizes that the clue to the murderer’s identity is buried in her father’s latest novel, finished just weeks before his death. But will she be able to see through the fiction before the killer comes after her?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Wilhelm demonstrates once again her sure understanding of human nature and her ability to wring more suspense from emotional violence than the physical variety.”

    San Diego Union-Tribune

  • The Deepest Water is...a well-written, nicely paced outing.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “The star of the book, strangely, is the cabin itself, a perversely menacing version of a Thomas Kincaid painting and a deliciously eerie setting for the mystery and murder, beckoning the reader to step inside.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Marguerite Gavin sets a brisk pace with her no-nonsense narrative style.” 


  • “Wilhelm is a first-rate novelist. Her characters are well drawn, the setting is real, and the pace keeps the reader raptly involved to the last page. Fans will love this, and readers who have encountered Wilhelm’s previous works are in for a real treat. Highly recommended.”

    " I liked the suspense of this story and it builds slowly and naturally. But. I did figure out who did it well,virtually right away. Still it was my first Wilhelm book and I will surely read another. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Betty Morrissey | 2/4/2014

    " I listened to this book and did not care for the narrator's voice. I thought the story was predictable from the get go and I didn't care about the characters, (even if they were women living in the Northwest). I couldn't get a fix on the cabins, lake, fingers, condo's...nada. Can't recommend. "

    " When Abby's father is murdered in a rural Oregon cabin. She goes on a quest to solve a crime that seems like a cold case to the authorities. I found it to be a fun, well-written, crime novel that took twists and turns that I did not see coming. "
