Description

'This dark, terrifying tale of possession and haunting is phenomenal . . . beautifully written, thoroughly absorbing and totally terrifying.' C.J. Tudor, bestselling author of The Chalk Man

Someone, or something, is haunting the Titanic.

This is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the passengers of the ship from the moment they set sail: mysterious disappearances, sudden deaths. Now suspended in an eerie, unsettling twilight zone during the four days of the liner's illustrious maiden voyage, a number of the passengers - including millionaires Madeleine Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim, the maid Annie Hebbley and Mark Fletcher - are convinced that something sinister is going on . . . And then, as the world knows, disaster strikes.

Years later and the world is at war. And a survivor of that fateful night, Annie, is working as a nurse on the sixth voyage of the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic, now refitted as a hospital ship. Plagued by the demons of her doomed first and near fatal journey across the Atlantic, Annie comes across an unconscious soldier she recognises while doing her rounds. It is the young man Mark. And she is convinced that he did not - could not - have survived the sinking of the Titanic . . .

Brilliantly combining fact and fiction, the historical and the horrific, The Deep reveals a chilling truth in an unputdownable narrative full of unnerving moments and with a growing, inexorable sense of foreboding.

Review quote

Elegant and eerie. Alma Katsu really is something rather special. -- JOHN CONNOLLY An incredibly ambitious setting, prose as ornate as the boat, mood as ghostly as Gothic, and what must have been enough research to build a ship of her own . . . The Deep is thrilling, rich, frightening, unsettling, and, best of all, told from the heart . . . The Hunger was fantastic, but The Deep is divine . . . a brilliant author. -- JOSH MALERMAN, author of Bird Box Another masterly supernatural reimagining of a historical tragedy: the sinking of the Titanic and her sister ship, the Britannic. Eerie, haunting, and filled with suspense, The Deep is a whirlpool of a novel that pulls you in and doesn't let go. -- DANIELLE TRUSSONI, author of the Angelology series and The Ancestor At once both tragic and chilling, The Deep perfectly blends psychological thriller and eerie gothic ghost story to create something truly haunting, drawing you down into its dark depths before finally letting you up for air. -- SARAH PINBOROUGH, author of Behind Her Eyes The way Alma Katsu weaves the true story of the Titanic and her sister ship, Britannic, with this dark, terrifying tale of possession and haunting is phenomenal. Part history, part drama, part love story, part creepy-as-heck ghost tale, with chills icier than the watery depths, The Deep is beautifully written, thoroughly absorbing and totally terrifying.' -- C.J. TUDOR, author of The Chalk Man
