From the acclaimed author of The Troopâa book that is âutterly terrifyingâ (Clive Barker). âFans of unflinching bleakness and all-out horror will love this novelâŠ.Each new shock is freshly disturbingâ (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
A strange plague called the âGets is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forgetâsmall 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 âambrosiaâ has been discovered. In order to study this phenomenon, a special research lab has been built eight miles under the seaâs 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 depthsâŠand perhaps to encounter an evil blacker than anything one could possibly imagine.
