Drowning with Others

(2019)
A novel by

 
 
They have the perfect marriage. Did one of them kill to get it?

Prep school sweethearts Ian and Andi Copeland are envied by everyone they know. They have successful businesses, a beautiful house in St. Louis, and their eldest daughter, Cassidy, is following in their footsteps by attending prestigious Glenlake Academy. Then, a submerged car is dredged from the bottom of a swimming hole near the campus. So are the remains of a former writer-in-residence who vanished twenty years ago—during Ian and Andi’s senior year.

When Cassidy’s journalism class begins investigating the death, Ian and Andi’s high school secrets rise to the surface. Each has a troubled link to the man whose arrival and sudden disappearance once set the school on edge. And each had a reason to want him gone. As Cassidy unwittingly edges closer to the truth, unspoken words, locked away for decades, will force Ian and Andi to question what they really know—about themselves, about the past, and about a marriage built on a murderous lie.

"A body at the bottom of a lake. A married couple with secrets from their boarding school days. And their resourceful daughter who just may uncover a truth she doesn't want to know. Drowning with Others, a riveting murder mystery rife with poetry, lust, and lies, captivated me to the last page. A sumptuous, dark tale I could not put down!" - Emily Carpenter

"Linda Keir’s artful telling of a private school upturned by a decades-old scandal is a seductive suspense story snaking around a polemic warning. The lies we tell don’t just define us. They become us. Gripping, poetic, and haunting: this book will keep you turning pages when you should be turning out the light." - Amber Cowie

"Sinister, sophisticated, and elegantly structured, Drowning with Others is a landmine of suspense, long-held secrets, hidden histories, and haunting manipulation.
