From the Back Cover
The Bathwater Conspiracy
is a perfect blend of speculative fiction, modern police procedural, and gripping political intrigue that might have been written by a young Margaret Atwood. Regardless of the time and place, Carson MacHenry, slovenly, rebellious, curious, above all brave, is a detective for the ages. But her age is that of a world very much like ours, with one startling detail that truly makes the reader sit back and think. An original and daring book .
I can not wait to visit this distant, alien, yet oh so familiar world again in MacHenry's next adventure." Vicki Delany, national (US) bestselling author of
The Sherlock Holmes Bookshop series and
The Year Round Christmas Mysteries
There's a distinct shortage of police procedurals in SF&F but Janet Kellough admirably fills the gap. The Bathwater Conspiracy
is the type of book you'll want to read in a single session -- not only for the mystery but for the brilliantly stealth world building. Tanya Huff, bestselling author of the
Blood Books, the
Quarters series, and the
Keeper's ChroniclesThe Bathwater Conspiracy
is one of the best SF mysteries I've read in years. A police procedural with the tone of a hard-boiled crime novel, in a post-apocalyptic setting with a twist. The characters are compelling, and inhabit a thoroughly imagined world crisp with details. Violette Malan, author of the
Dhulyn & Parno novels
