Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kate Wilhelm always surprises me.This books starts out so predictably,a dead body at a secluded cabin and the mystery of who the killer might be,however as the story unfolds she makes each character so unique especially all the women.She also describes flawlessly the geographic locations.The ending is stunning.

This was my first by Kate Wilhelm, but definitely won't be my last. Wilhelm's style of writing is subtle and works its way under your skin when you're not looking. It's not a hardcore mystery or psychological thriller, but Wilhelm draws you in so slowly and subtly that you don't even realize you're hooked. When Abby's father, Jud, a bestselling novelist, is murdered in his lakeside cabin, Abby sets out to find out who the murderer is. Others around Abby believe they know who it is, but the dawning realization takes Abby a little longer to accept. Even better is Abby's father's ability to take actual events and people and change them just enough to use in his books. And, of course, the identity of Jud's murderer is hidden in his final novel. Definitely a wonderfully woven story with believable characters and events.

What an excellent writer! As an avid reader, finding such exciting and easy to follow reading can be difficult. But I found that "The Deepest Water" was hard to put down. There was suspense on every page. It is a fun read!

"The Deepest Water" is the first book by Kate Wilhelm that I have read, but I will certainly read her others.
This is a fantastic mystery about the murder of a fiction writer, Jud Connors. The protagonist is his daughter Abby; points of view are also provided by Jud's lady friend Willa and by Felicia, an old family friend. The suspense is beautifully meshed, with even the smallest holes patched by the end of the book. Amidst the search for the killer is woven a wonderful storyline: Jud's friends, his daughter's marriage, Jud's clues to his murderer in his new novel, and Jud's surprising legacy.
Abby's love for her father went back far enough to solve the mystery: She had proofread for him back in the days when he wrote computer manuals, and the key was in the computer. I thought that this was brilliant.
I'm used to particular twists in mysteries, and was so afraid that this book would follow the patterns of other authors. Happily, it didn't, and I finished the book satisfied with the ending.
I couldn't put down the book, and I strongly recommend it!
