About DEEP WATERS:
In a culture obsessed with celebrity, baby Muffin's death is big
news. Cot death, or something more sinister? Everyone wants to know, including the police. Whatever the truth, the bereaved parents, celebrity couple Jodee and Chazz, live in curate Callie Anson's parish, and Callie becomes involved with funeral arrangements, in spite of the disapproval of her vicar and his wife. Detective Inspector Neville Stewart is recalled from his honeymoon to investigate the case, with disastrous personal results. And journalist Lilith Noones professional future is on the line, as she is sucked more and more deeply into her own flirtation with celebrity culture. Meanwhile, for police family liaison officer Mark Lombardi, the death of baby Muffin is eclipsed by another death, much closer to home, and he finds himself in an impossible position, torn between his loyalty to his family and his growing love for Callie.
This powerful novel explores the current fascination with celebrities and the world they inhabit. Like them or loathe them, you can't escape their pervasive influence in our society. Are they really that different from the rest of us? Why do we care, and what does it say about us? Deep Waters takes an unflinching look at our ambivalent relationship with the celebrities we make … and discard.
