Summary
"From the acclaimed author of The Troop--which Stephen King raved "scared the hell out of me and I couldn't put it down....old-school horror at its best"--comes this utterly terrifying novel where The Abyss meets The Shining. A 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. Then their bodies forget how to function involuntarily...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 "ambrosia" has been discovered--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 sea's surface. But now the station is incommunicado, and it's up to a brave few to 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. Part horror, part psychological nightmare, The Deep is a novel that fans of Stephen King and Clive Barker won't want to miss--especially if you're afraid of the dark"--
Summary
In a sealed research lab eight miles under the surface of the Pacific Ocean, three scientists work feverishly to find a cure for a plague that threatens to wipe out humanity. When communications from the lab fal silent, veterinarian Luke Nelson -- whose brother is one of the scientists there -- travels into the depths to find out what's wrong. He discovers a nightmarish scene, where violence and hallucination blur the lines of reality. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
