Inhaltsangabe: Long regarded as "one of the masters of psychological fiction in America" (San Francisco Chronicle), Kate Wilhelm delivers one of her most probing---and most suspenseful---novels in The Deepest Water. Abby Connors's father, Jud, was a novelist whose career finally took off after three novels and years of hard work.Jud was also the most important man in Abby's life, to the chagrin of her husband Brice.When Jud is murdered in his Oregon lakefront cabin, Abby's life is overturned.Was the killer someone she knew?Fortunately, it seems she has a guide to direct her through the maze that is her life: Jud's last novel.If only she can see through the fiction to perceive the truth.Outwardly calm, yet irresistible, The Deepest Water grows more chilling---and more compelling---as the reader probes deeper into it.This novel is a blockbuster from one of America's best-loved storytellers.
Rezension: A bizarre and horrible coincidence draws FBI special agent Teresa Simons to England: on the same day that a mass murderer killed her husband and fourteen others in Kingwood City, Texas, another spree killer massacred seventeen in the small Sussex town of Bulverton. Teresa seeks to understand her husband's death by exploring the similar but unrelated event in Bulverton, as she once explored reconstructions of historical mass murders in ExEx (Extreme Experience, a brutally realistic form of virtual reality) to train for her FBI job. In Bulverton she finds a commercial ExEx parlor, which, she is horrified and fascinated to discover, offers a Bulverton mass-murder scenario. As Teresa explores both the town and the scenario of Bulverton, the separations between reality and ExEx, between ExEx murder reconstructions, between past and present, begin to blur--and so does the separation between Kingwood City and Bulverton, as Teresa realizes the simultaneity of the events may be more than a coincidence.
A New York Times Recommended Book, The Extremes received the British Science Fiction Association award for 1999. Christopher Priest's previous novel, The Prestige, won the World Fantasy Award and the James Tait Black Award. --Cynthia Ward
