Gabriel (chartjunk) | 2 comments Pre-2010 (2009?). Genre: I'm not sure I remember. Fantasy/Mystery? I believe the cover was yellow.


I believe he was a crappy journalist looking for his big break. He catches wind of some hippy water loving cult. Turns out they're an apocalyptic cult that are trying to flood Manhattan and then the world. The book ends with the implication that Godzilla or some other Lovecraftian horror is in Hudson Bay. It is NOT a horror book. I distinctly remember a scene where he's extoling his sense memory attached to smell, and he recalls the moth balls in his Grandmother's closet or something similar.

Gabriel, what's the genre - e.g., adult thriller, fantasy, humor?

I edited it in to the post. I don't quite remember. I'm guessing modern fantasy (present day NYC with "Godzilla") and possibly thriller/mystery
