Publisher Comments:

Now that she's solved her sister's murder, Hallie Michaels has left the army and isn't sure what to do next. Her relationship with deputy Boyd Davies is tentative, there's still distance between her and her father, and she needs a job. The good news is, she hasn't seen a ghost in weeks.

All that changes when she gets a call asking her to help an elderly neighbor who is being stalked by black dogs, creatures from the underworld that are harbingers of death. When a black dog appears, Hallie learns, a reaper is sure to follow. And if the dark visions she's suddenly receiving are any indication, it looks like the reaper is now following her.

Meanwhile, strange events herald the arrival of ghosts from Boyd's past, ghosts the young deputy isn't ready to face. Refusing Hallie's help, Boyd takes off to deal with the problem on his own, only to find that he's facing something much larger and more frightening than he'd imagined.

Stalked by a reaper and plagued by dark visions, Hallie finds she must face her fears and travel into Death's own realm to save those she most loves.

Deep Down is the chilling sequel to Wide Open, Deborah Coates's “refreshingly original dark fantasy debut.” (Publishers Weekly)  

Review:

"Supernatural-sensitive Hallie Michaels returns for a thrill-packed adventure in this solid follow-up to Wide Open. Hallie has been able to see ghosts since a near-death experience while soldiering in Afghanistan. Even this talent hasn't equipped her for the latest weirdness in her rural South Dakota town: people are disappearing, and Rapid City is being overrun with doglike harbingers and death-dealing reapers. Years before, Travis Hollowell murdered the wife of deputy sheriff Boyd Davies; now Boyd is Hallie's boyfriend, so she's doubly concerned when Hollowell becomes a reaper and begins stalking Boyd's sister-in-law. Before she can figure out how to resolve matters, Hallie will take a trip to the underworld and have several encounters with Death incarnate. Coates staffs her tale with other psychically gifted characters who give credible purpose to its wild events, and Hallie shows impressive grit and physicality while battling occult forces. Agent: Caitlin Blasdell, Liza Dawson Associates." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
