THE WATER COMPANY
Haunted marionettes from another century usher in the digital age! Apprentice chef, Keith Clayton finds himself supervising the merging of two worlds in this gripping thriller. A sleepy Texas town on the Brazos River becomes a supernatural battle ground when he discovers that his very reality is not what he always supposed.
"I am a big fan of Marquette. He has a unique ability to blend the real and the fantastic. Much like his earlier work, "The Weather Man," this novel has a tremendously authentic grounding in a Central Texas town. It is evoked through rich characters, a humid atmosphere, and, of course, the food. A modern restaurant, built in an old historic building, becomes the focus of paranormal activity. Antique wooden puppets and cigar-store Indians housed in the attic provide the creepy context of a haunting that will raise the hair on the back of your neck.."
