May Lynn is a pretty girl who dreams of becoming a Hollywood star. Until her dead body is dredged up from the Sabine River. Sue Ellen, May Lynn s strong-willed teenage friend, and her friends Terry and Jinx set out to dig up May Lynn s body, burn it to ash, and take those ashes to Hollywood. If May Lynn can t become a star, then at least her remains can be spread in the land of her dreams. All they need is some money and a raft; while the raft is easily available, stealing the money requires some gumption, but they manage it. Then they head downriver together with Sue Ellen s agoraphobic mother: a motley crew on a mission. Pursued by Uncle Gene and Constable Sy, who re after the money, and Skunk, an all-too-real legendary killer who s after their lives, they begin to understand that when you set out to make the dreams of a friend your own, your worst nightmares might come along for the ride.

A charming Gothic tale. . . . as funny and frightening as anything that could have been dreamed up by the Brothers Grimm or Mark Twain. --New York Times Book Review
A cast of unforgettable characters. . . . a terrific read. From its pages waft memories of Huckleberry Finn, To Kill A Mockingbird, and even As I Lay Dying with its journey to lay a soul to rest. When I reached the final page, something happened that I can t remember ever happening with a book I ve read for a review. I wanted to read it again. --Boston Globe
Edge of Dark Water describes a trip downriver that is one-half Huck Finn, one-half Deliverance, and entirely Joe Lansdale. If you aren t familiar with the work of this true American original, and master of hillbilly noir, climb in the boat and hang on for dear life: the water is rough. --Joe Hill, author of previous PS best-sellers 20th Century Ghosts and Horns
Mark Twain crossed with crime fiction - a Depression-era noir by fan favourite Joe Lansdale.
