Dead Water by C. A. Fletcher
Trade Paperback – Orbit – Jun 2023 – 521 pages
And the water shall call them home.
On the edge of the North Atlantic lies a remote Scottish isle. The residents are a mix of those born and bred on the land and newcomers seeking a slower, quieter way of life, away from the modern world. But all have their own secrets, some much darker than others. And when a strange waterborne blight begins to infect them all, those secrets come to light.
Ferry service fails. Phone towers go down. And slowly, inconvenience transforms into nightmarish ordeal— and the outwardly harmonious fabric of the community is irreversibly torn apart.
