Overview

Depth by Lev AC Rosen

In a post-apocalyptic flooded New York City, a private investigator’s routine surveillance case leads to a treasure everyone wants to find—and someone is willing to kill for.

Depth combines hardboiled mystery and dystopian science fiction in a future where the rising ocean levels have left New York twenty-one stories under water and cut off from the rest of the United States. But the city survives, and Simone Pierce is one of its best private investigators. Her latest case, running surveillance on a potentially unfaithful husband, was supposed to be easy. Then her target is murdered, and the search for his killer points Simone towards a secret from the past that can’t possibly be real—but that won’t stop the city’s most powerful men and women from trying to acquire it for themselves, with Simone caught in the middle.

Every story creates a world; some writers spend amazing amounts of energy in world construction at the cost of character development and plot. This book was not that. Never so enamored with itself that it loses sight of the story, nor overburdened with trying to foresee language quirks of the future, what you get instead is a solid mystery with a sci-if backdrop. Hope to see more of these characters!

As frequently happens for me, it was the cover that first caught my attention and then I read the description and decided that I had to read this novel. I'm so very glad that I did. I loved Depth. This novel is the perfect mix of dystopian/ post apocalyptic fiction and mystery/noir. I liked the characters. Simone, Caroline and Danny are people I would like to meet and get to know. The world is well developed and fascinating. Depth takes place after the polar ice caps have melted, in a New York City that is mostly underwater. People live on boats or in the above water sections of skyscrapers. A mainland United States and other countries are hinted at and vague information is given; leaving me wondering what the rest of this world is like. I hope that Rosen writes more novels set in this world, I would like to read more about the people of this NYC and learn more about the rest of Rosen's post apocalyptic world.
