TO FEEL THIS PLEASURE, FIRST YOU MUST SURVIVE THE DEEP.
By day, Rachel Matre runs a hip diner in downtown Madison, Wisconsin. By night, she slips naked into the waters of a lake whose spirits speak to her, caress her, and take her to a place of indescribable pleasure.
But now the machinations of a greedy developer have summoned another force from the depths—a strange, beautiful man with a dark agenda. Soon there is a murder by the lake. During the hunt for the killer, Rachel is pulled into a torturous limbo where all she can feel is her raging erotic lust—and never a release. A crime, an ancient curse, and a confluence of thoroughly modern relationships have plunged Rachel into the ultimate mystery: one whose solution will emerge only out of pain, desire, and a passion for the most forbidden truth of all.
Alex Prentiss left the South and was delighted to find Madison, Wisconsin, waiting. One marriage and two kids later, Alex is still glad to be living and writing in Madison. Dark Waters is Alex Prentiss’s second novel.
