Reader beware: if you suffer from thalassophobia (= fear of the sea), prepare to be chilled to the bone. . . because the world of Corin Hayes is entirely underwater.

Set in a dystopian future, the premise of Silent City is a terrifying one. Humanity has retreated to the bottom of the ocean after poisoning the Earth's atmosphere with its industrial and chemical bullshit. The protagonist, Corin, is something of a jaded loner. He scrapes a living by carrying out odd jobs that only someone proficient in the use of a 'fish-suit' (I'm not telling you what it is. Read the book!) can accomplish. But his unique skillset soon lands him in even deeper water than he's accustomed to . . . metaphorically speaking.

Short, entertaining and exciting: Silent City is the start of a series I'll certainly be following with interest.
