The DeepPaperback - 2015
A strange plague called the 'Gets is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forget--small things at first, like where they left their keys...then the not-so-small things like how to drive, or the letters of the alphabet. Then their bodies forget how to function involuntarily...and there is no cure. But now, far below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, deep in the Mariana Trench, an heretofore unknown substance hailed as "ambrosia"'--a universal healer, from initial reports--has been discovered. It may just be the key to eradicating the 'Gets. In order to study this phenomenon, a special research lab, the Trieste , has been built eight miles under the sea's surface. But when the station goes incommunicado, a brave few descend through the lightless fathoms in hopes of unraveling the mysteries lurking at those crushing depths...and perhaps to encounter an evil blacker than anything one could possibly imagine.
"Fans of unflinching bleakness and all-out horror will love this novel....Each new shock is freshly disturbing" ( Publishers Weekly , starred review).

A strange plague called the "'Gets" is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forget--small things at first, like where they left their keys...then the not-so-small things like how to drive or the letters of the alphabet.
Below the surface of the Pacific Ocean lies a cure to the sudden plague dubbed the "the Gets", which is quickly wiping out humanity. But to go eight miles under the sea surface--not knowing what could be down there--could be more dangerous than anything else.
When the "'Gets" plague sweeps across the globe, a secret underwater lab comes up with a solution...only to go dark days after announcing their findings. Now it's up to a choice few to swim to the deep and find out what's happened..
