Edge of Dark Water

Edge of Dark Water

May Lynn was a pretty girl from a mean family who dreamed of becoming a film star. Now she’s dead – her body dredged up from the Sabine River, bound with wire and weighted down.
Her best friend, Sue Ellen, has a family meaner than May’s and a yearning for something greater than she’s been given. She thinks the least she can do for her friend is take her ashes to Hollywood, and place them on her favourite actor’s grave.
But May Lynn’s diary holds a secret: the location of a large sum of money. What seems like a stroke of fortune has disastrous consequences, and Sue Ellen’s escape is about to get more complicated than she’d ever imagined.

Reviews

Alternately scary, funny as hell, disturbing, but always (and most importantly) memorable.
Bruce Campbell
The strongest, truest, and most pitch-perfect narration since Huck Finn's. Marvelous and terrifying, EDGE OF DARK WATER is the result of real genius at work. A masterpiece.
Dan Simmons
Dark and comic, bleak and terrifying, romantic and endearing...This, I kid you not, is the Great American Novel of the year.
<i>CrimeTime</i>
EDGE OF DARK WATER describes a trip downriver that is one-half Huck Finn, one-half Deliverance, and entirely Joe Lansdale.
Joe Hill
Joe Lansdale has long been one of our finest and most difficult to classify writers... In EDGE OF DARK WATER he offers a beautifully spun tale of life in the sticks, friendship and mortality, and tells it with the wit, humor and pure-deep power we've come to expect of him.
