About this title

Synopsis:

In Open Water, Maria Flook explores the charged and eerie shoreline of Newport, Rhode Island, where Willis Pratt squanders his days running small cons. But his heart's not in it - he's obsessed with fishing-boat tragedies from his childhood and with Holly, a pretty new neighbor who is charged with arson.
Their romance is interrupted when Willis is called home to care for his dying stepmother, Rennie, whose biological son wants to place her in a care facility. Willis is determined to guarantee his stepmother the death she desires, but when he arrives, Rennie sees that it is he who needs caring for - Willis quickly gets hooked on her prescription morphine.
This is Maria Flook's natural ground, a harsh and sensual terrain where family debt and carnal knowledge intersect.
Open Water is a confirmation of Maria Flook's remarkable talent. Caught up in the novel's unremitting current, its characters are propelled to a resolution that no one left on shore could have imagined.

About the Author:
