'Waters of the Deep' by Alex Beecroft begins four years after the last ‘Unquiet Spirits’ book leaves off. Jasper and Charles have been living together; to everyone else, as business partners, but in truth, as lovers. It's not as much of a secret as they think because Charles is bothered by the gossip and speculation. All is not well between the lovers; often, Charles is tired of being tormented, caused by being in a life he'd never considered. Charles begins to resent being tied down. Instead of talking it out with Jasper, he selfishly sleeps with another man, which he instantly regrets. The thought of facing Jasper's wrath and possible abandonment is unbearable. Fortunately for Charles, they get a request to check out a suspicious murder. Because of their rift, Charles fears that Jasper will refuse to go with him, but he agrees to accompany Charles.
Their investigation takes them to Benedict Manor where they meet Benedict's widow, his son, his ward, and a friend named Phillip. It seems that the pumping station Benedict built in the river has stirred up a great deal of controversy. The suspicious residents have never wanted the pumping station; no one in the town will talk with them about it. All they will say about it is that the water does not want to be chained. When Jasper investigates at the mill, the workers say that from the condition of the place, it appears to have been where Mr. Benedict was murdered. When Jasper heads back to the manor, he discovers Charles locked in an embrace with Phillip, making the chance for reconciliation remote at best.
Alex has created a whodunnit mystery and love story, with some horror and supernatural elements added for good measure. Her characters are not the what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind. They are a mixture of wounded souls with faults and all, seeking love and redemption. Alex gave me quite a few surprises and frights along the way as Jasper and Charles work to untangle the clues of a murder as well as working to untangle and define their relationship. The ending was unexpected, but it was oddly logical, setting things as they were meant to be. Although I want to shake some sense into Charles, he's trying to overcome a life of privilege, one where he can do anything he likes, but a loveless one, until Jasper, who desperately needs love, comes along. There's little wonder why their relationship is rocky. Their paranormal investigations are brilliant and I'd like to go on to more cases with them. Thanks, Alex for a stimulating but frightful read.
