From the acclaimed author of The Troopâ€”which Stephen King raved â€śscared the hell out of me and I couldnâ€™t put it down.â€¦old-school horror at its bestâ€ťâ€”comes this utterly terrifying novel where The Abyss meets The Shining.
A strange plague called the â€™Gets is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forgetâ€”small things at first, like where they left their keysâ€¦then the not-so-small things like how to drive, or the letters of the alphabet. Then their bodies forget how to function involuntarilyâ€¦and there is no cure. But now, far below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, deep in the Marianas Trench, an heretofore unknown substance hailed as â€śambrosiaâ€ť has been discoveredâ€”a universal healer, from initial reports. It may just be the key to a universal cure. In order to study this phenomenon, a special research lab, the Trieste, has been built eight miles under the seaâ€™s surface. But now the station is incommunicado, and itâ€™s up to a brave few to descend through the lightless fathoms in hopes of unraveling the mysteries lurking at those crushing depthsâ€¦and perhaps to encounter an evil blacker than anything one could possibly imagine.
Part horror, part psychological nightmare, The Deep is a novel that fans of Stephen King and Clive Barker wonâ€™t want to missâ€”especially if youâ€™re afraid of the dark.
