Michael McDowell was proclaimed “the finest writer of paperback originals in America” by Stephen King, and “one of the best writers of horror in this country” by Peter Straub. Now, McDowell’s masterpiece—the serial novel, Blackwater—has come to thrill and terrify a new generation of readers...
The Depression came hard to most people in Perdido, Alabama, but the town's first family weathered the storm under the guidane of the indomitable Mary-Love Caskey and the increasing influence of her daughter-in-law, Elinor.
Strange and malevolent were the ways of Elinor to those who stood in her way. Those she loved would prosper. Those she disliked would die hideously. No court could call it murder because her manner was not human.
