    When a recklessly idealistic girl in a dystopian future society dares to test the perimeters of her tightly controlled world, she is punished by being sent back in time to a region of North America - ‘Wainscotia, Wisconsin’ - that existed 80 years before. Cast adrift in time in this idyllic Midwestern town, she is set upon a course of ‘rehabilitation’ - but she falls in love with a fellow exile and starts to question the constraints of her new existence, with results that are both devastating and liberating.

    Two families. Two faces of America. An act of violence with far-reaching consequences.

The killing leaves in its wake two fatherless families: the Voorheeses, who are affluent, highly educated, secular and pro-choice, and the Dunphys, their opposite on all counts.

A powerful curse besets the elite families of Princeton; their daughters begin disappearing. A young bride on the verge of the altar is seduced and abducted by a dangerously compelling man - a shape-shifting, vaguely European prince who might just be the devil.

    Unter dem Pseudonym "Pik-Bube" verfasst der renommierte Schriftsteller Andrew Rush düster-verstörende Thriller. So leicht ihm das Schreiben dieser rauschhaften Gewaltfantasien weit nach Mitternacht von der Hand geht, so verschwommen ist später seine Erinnerung an den Inhalt. Als ein Plagiatsvorwurf Rushs guten Ruf - und damit seine Existenz und seine Familie - bedroht, ist plötzlich "Pik-Bube" mit hinterhältigen Ratschlägen zur Stelle. Und fast gegen seinen Willen beginnt Rush ihnen zu folgen.

    "Sort vand" er den dramatiske historie om Kelly Kehler og hendes liv, der passerer revy, imens hun venter på den stille druknedød fastklemt i en bil, der er kørt i vandet. Romanen kredser om, hvordan Kelly Kehler er havnet i den frygtelige situation, om hendes noget naive forhold til mænd, der ikke vil hende det godt, og om hendes fortid som en selvmordstruet ung kvinde, som ironisk nok valgte livet. Erindringerne blandes med stadig flere hallucinationer, efterhånden som det sorte vand stiger i bilen, og ilten forsvinder.

Men bortførelsen går ikke som planlagt, og pludselig står gruppen uden en leder.
