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...
Under Elinor's guidance, the Caskey family prospered after the war, not knowing that a dark infernal force was growing in their midst. And Frances, Elinor's favorite daughter, never understood her strange yearning for the Perdido River....until the day her babies were born.
Elinor presided over the secret birth, the triumph of her life. And the blood red water of the Perdido continued to claim its own- both human and demons - some in grisly death, some in exquisite surrender.
