The Bathwater Conspiracy

Free sample

Nothing about this case makes sense.

Detective Carson “Mac” MacHenry can’t figure out why the Darmes are so interested in this one dead girl or why the secretive federal police have rushed the autopsy or why, a few days later, the records of the dead girl's murder have been erased from all official government channels.

Even stranger to the detective is the manner of death – injuries consistent with a violent beating and sexual assault. Crimes rarely seen in current society. Crimes eradicated decades earlier.

The Bathwater Conspiracy follows Mac and her partner Nguyen as they wander a dystopian post-apocalyptic cityscape in search of clues to Alfreda Longwell's murder. Their off-the-books investigation leads them from the halls of Alfreda's university to the Decayed Area, a blasted wasteland at the city’s edge where technophobic religious fundamentalists struggle with scavengers and lunatics in a never-ending fight for survival.

When the pair discovers a secret government project gone horribly wrong, they must work to uncover the details of a plot which will rock the already fragile political landscape of the city to its core…

Janet Kellough’s latest novel offers a tightly-plotted mystery and a fascinating glimpse at genetic engineering run amok in a near-future world. Touching on issues of bioethics, gender, religion, and more, The Bathwater Conspiracy will appeal to fans of science fiction, post-apocalyptic fiction, and police procedurals alike.

Includes:
The Burying Ground — Thaddeus Lewis Mystery #4 (NEW!)
Thaddeus reunites with an old friend in less-than-cheerful circumstances to catch a grave robber who is preying on a vagrants’ cemetery and stealing more than bodies. The two soon find themselves entangled in a mystery that stretches back to the typhus epidemic of 1847, and the legacy of a scandal many would prefer left buried.

47 Sorrows — Thaddeus Lewis Mystery #3
In 1847 “Black” 100,000 Irish emigrants are fleeing to Canada. When a corpse washes up naked but for a small green ribbon, the mystery exposes a vendetta that began in Ireland.

Sowing Poison — Thaddeus Lewis Mystery #2
The wife of a vanished man begins to hold seances for villagers, claiming she can contact the dead. Thaddeus’s ethical objections propel him on a twisted path. On the Head of a Pin — Thaddeus Lewis Mystery #1
With a serial killer loose in Upper Canada, Lewis must track the culprit across a colony convulsed by invasion and fear. His only clues are a Book of Proverbs and a small painted pin left with the victims.
