In a culture obsessed with celebrity, baby Muffin’s death is big news. Crib death—or something more sinister? Everyone wants to know, including the police. Whatever the truth, the bereaved parents—celebrity couple Jodee and Chazz—live in curate Callie Anson’s parish. And despite the disapproval of her vicar and his wife, Callie becomes involved with funeral arrangements.
It’s a high-profile case, all right. Detective Inspector Neville Stewart is even recalled from his honeymoon to investigate—with disastrous personal results. And journalist Lilith Noone’s professional future is on the line as she is sucked more deeply into her own flirtations with celebrity culture.
But for police family liaison officer Mark Lombardi, the death of baby Muffin is eclipsed by another death much closer to home. He soon finds himself in an impossible position, torn between his loyalty to his family and his growing love for Callie.
Deep Waters takes an unflinching look at our ambivalent relationship with the celebrities we make…and discard.
