Rooted in Deceit

The Night of the Flood

Wendy’s story: “Anything Worth Saving”

“Plenty of complex characters and hard edges. Take a breath, then hang on and enjoy this entertaining romp.”
–Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author

“Bravo to all the authors who contributed to The Night of the Flood, a collection of brilliant short stories about residents of the dysfunctional town of Everton who are thrust into the turbulence of decisions that will forever change who they thought they were. A stormy page-turner that will leave you wanting more.”
–Sandra Brannan, author of the award-winning Liv Bergen Mystery Series

“A brilliant, multi-leveled concept, Faulknerian in its structure. A novel in stories. Wow. Fourteen exciting crime writers create a rare three-dimensional mosaic of a doomed town and the night hell flooded through it. Terrifically exciting. Wonderfully inventive.”
–David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder As a Fine Art

“A brave concept brilliantly executed.”
–Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher Series

“Each of the 14 varied and fitfully amusing stories in this solid anthology takes as its starting point the destruction of a dam and the subsequent flooding of Everton, Pa. Some of the selections, such as Wendy Tyson’s “Anything Worth Saving,” highlight a band of women, known as the Daughters, who blew up the dam as a protest against the death by lethal injection of a woman convicted of killing her two rapists… a distinctive anthology.”
