From the acclaimed and award-winning author of The Hunger comes an eerie, psychological twist on one of the world's most renowned tragedies, the sinking of the Titanic and the ill-fated sail of its sister ship, the Britannic .

Someone, or some thing , is haunting the ship. Between mysterious disappearances and sudden deaths, the guests of the Titanic have found themselves suspended in an eerie, unsettling twilight zone from the moment they set sail. Several of them, including maid Annie Hebley, guest Mark Fletcher, and millionaires Madeleine Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim, are convinced there's something sinister--almost otherwordly--afoot. But before they can locate the source of the danger, as the world knows, disaster strikes.

Years later, Annie, having survived that fateful night, has attempted to put her life back together. Working as a nurse on the sixth voyage of the Titanic 's sister ship, the Britannic , newly refitted as a hospital ship, she happens across an unconscious Mark, now a soldier fighting in World War I. At first, Annie is thrilled and relieved to learn that he too survived the sinking, but soon, Mark's presence awakens deep-buried feelings and secrets, forcing her to reckon with the demons of her past--as they both discover that the terror may not yet be over.

Brilliantly combining the supernatural with the height of historical disaster, The Deep is an exploration of love and destiny, desire and innocence, and, above all, a quest to understand how our choices can lead us inexorably toward our doom.

Booklist Review: "As she did with the ill-fated Donner party in The Hunger (2018), Katsu puts a supernatural spin on a famous historical tragedy: this time, the sinking of sister ships Titanic (1912) and Britannic (1916). Irish maid Annie Hebbley has the bad luck to be on both ships for their doomed voyages. In 1912, she's a starry-eyed eighteen-year-old who, having fled her family in Ireland, hopes to make a fresh start aboard the luxury liner. But tragedy soon strikes when a young serving boy dies suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving his mistress, the young, pregnant Maddie Astor, devastated and convinced that there is some sort of supernatural malfeasance afoot. Annie is distracted by her own powerful feelings for Mark Fletcher, a handsome passenger, and his infant daughter. Four years later, after she signs up for a tour of duty as a nurse aboard the hospital ship Britannic during World War I, Annie is shocked when Mark is brought on board as a patient and her feelings for him resurface. A slow-burning but satisfying and eerie yarn.--Kristine Huntley Copyright 2020 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Painstakingly researched and meticulously plotted, Katsu's latest (after 2018's The Hunger) infuses a pair of significant shipwrecks with the supernatural. In 1912, docile and dutiful Annie Hebbley, suddenly eager to escape her confined life in a small Northern Ireland town, finds work as a stewardess on the Titanic, where she becomes entwined with a wealthy couple and their new baby and develops strange compulsions as mysterious occurrences, including disappearances and an attempted suicide, plague the ship. In 1916, having survived the Titanic's sinking only to spend the last four years in an asylum, Annie again finds relief through work, this time as a nurse on the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic, which has been refitted as a wartime hospital ship. Though readers will be aware of the inevitable tragedies awaiting, Katsu successfully injects suspense into both time lines, spinning a darkly captivating tale of hauntings, possessions, secrets, and class through a multitude of perspectives, as readers slowly come to understand the truth of Annie's often odd behavior. The historically predetermined ending may keep readers from connecting emotionally to the narrative, but Katsu's artful writing and calculated pacing keep the pages turning. This is an impressive, horror-tinged trip back in time. Agent: Stephen Barbara, Inkwell Management. (Mar.)"
