NEW-2_CUTTER_The-Deep_Design-2A 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 now, far below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, deep in the Mariana Trench, a heretofore-unknown substance hailed as “ambrosia”—a universal healer, from initial reports—has been discovered. It may just be the key to eradicating the ‘Gets.

In order to study this phenomenon, a special research lab, the Trieste, 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.

Second roman, GROSSES attentes. N’est pas le (Stephen) King qui veut. M. Cutter, alias Craig Davidson, rate de peu la ligne d’arrivée avec The Deep, un excellent roman d’épouvante/post apocalyptique subaquatique (et made in Canada !). Sa conclusion, totalement ratée (tout créateur n’est pas Kubrick), détruit un peu trop l’expérience de lecture, pourtant claustro-malsaine à souhait. Dommage. On va attendre le troisième, prévu pour avril (!!)
