A bold and startling comic thriller about climate crisis, conspiracy, and what lurks beneath the waves…
It's 2050 and, due to the rising sea level, a small coastal town in Britain is now underwater. Some of the town's inhabitants have taken shelter in a manor house, which has been converted into a camp for climate-change refugees. It's run by Maxscore, a shady private company.
As they face power cuts, food scarcity and blackmail, the camp inmates start to realise that people are mysteriously disappearing. A strange force has been unleashed and is set to destroy them. Can they stop it before it's too late?
