Flood Waters Down

Clive’s first novel Flood Waters Down is about the disparate lives of a renegade Fen dweller and a young city woman colliding with purpose and passion in a dystopian near-future world where powerful entities are exploiting the unstoppable forces of nature as a cover for sinister plans to dominate humanity.

Water and flooding at the novel’s heart are not just physical but cultural and, against this backdrop, the heroine journeys from a morally corrupt and disintegrating capital city into a primitive environment where she meets one of the rebel Fen dwellers and discovers life can be real and relevant again.
