From the acclaimed author of The Troop—a book that is “utterly terrifying” (Clive Barker). “Fans of unflinching bleakness and all-out horror will love this novel….Each new shock is freshly disturbing.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

A strange plague called the ‘Gets is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forget—small things at first, like where they left their keys, then the not-so-small things, like how to drive or the letters of the alphabet. Their bodies forget how to function involuntarily. There is no cure.

But far below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, a universal healer hailed as “ambrosia” has been discovered. In order to study this phenomenon, a special research lab has been built eight miles under the sea’s surface. But when the station goes incommunicado, a brave few descend through the lightless fathoms in hopes of unraveling the mysteries lurking at those crushing depths…and perhaps to encounter an evil blacker than anything one could possibly imagine.

    Read this book. Like right now. Like stay up all night and read it. Arguably one of the best horror novels I've ever read.
  • Wow....

    By Chef_Ninja
    Think Event Horizon meets The Sphere meets some elemental parts of I Am Legend... Even though Cutters seems to jump around at neck breaking paces... Still a worthwhile book.
  • Meh

    By Clancy’s Ghost
    Stephen King without the capacity to keep you riveted or make you really care. Creepy and disgusting in parts, but overall not what I’d hoped it would be based on the setup.
