Deep House: A DreadfulWater Mystery Hardcover – Deckle Edge, Jan. 18 2022
Purchase options and add-ons
From the #1 bestselling author of Indians on Vacation, Sufferance and 77 Fragments of a Familiar Ruin
For the first time since the pandemic, Thumps DreadfulWater has finally found some peace in small-town Chinook. Sure, his beloved cat is still missing and his relationship with Claire is more than uncertain, but at least he can relax in the comfort of his home. And now that local businesses are opening their doors again, everything can go back to the way it was.
But when Thumps discovers a body at the bottom of a treacherous canyon, he becomes entangled once again in an inexplicable mystery. And as more puzzling details come to the surface, Thumps begins to question whom he can truly trust—especially when an unexpected visitor walks back into his life.
In the follow-up toObsidian, a Globe and Mail Favourite of 2020, Thumps DreadfulWater returns once more with wit and wry humour to solve a mystery that only Thomas King could create.
“Throughout Deep House — throughout the humourous rambling discussions Thumps has with his friends, the sheriff, the townsfolk, the ominous strangers — there is oft-hilarious dialogue that carries a bite, a remark here, an anecdote there, about racism and land claims and traditions and colonialism. About poverty and systemic greed. Thomas King is such a gift to us all.” — Winnipeg Free Press
“Thomas King’s well written books are some of the most entertaining novels out there.” — Metroland Media

The Thumps I envisioned was not political and to add a thought that he disliked Donald Trump drew attention to the author's hatred/bias and spoiled the story.
