Description

Afraid of the dark? You should be ... Part horror, part psychological nightmare, The Deep by Nick Cutter is a novel fans of Stephen King and Clive Barker won't want to miss.

A plague is destroying the world's population. The 'Gets makes people forget. First it's the small things, like where you left your keys ... then the not-so-small things, like how to drive. And finally your body forgets how to live.

But now an unknown substance with extraordinary power to heal has been discovered in the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Nicknamed ambrosia, it might just be the miracle cure the world has been praying for.

A research lab has been established eight miles below the sea's surface, but all contact with the team has been lost. Dr Luke Nelson's brother is down there and as desperation for a cure outweighs common sense, he agrees to descend through the lightless fathoms ... perhaps to face an evil blacker than anything he could have imagined.

Review quote

Old-school horror at its best. Not for the faint-hearted, but for the rest of us sick puppies, it's a perfect gift -- Stephen King on The Troop Some thrillers produce shivers, others trigger goose bumps; Cutter's graphic offering will have readers jumping out of their skin * Kirkus Reviews on The Troop * Suspenseful . . . sinister . . . horrifying * Library Journal on The Troop * The Troop is proper horror. Packed with onomatopoeic squelchiness * SFX on The Troop * Lean and crisp . . . Disquieting, disturbing -- Scott Smith, author of The Ruins on The Troop
