It happened the night Maggie Wilbourne was to be put to
death, the first woman executed by the state of Pennsylvania
in modern times. That was when a group of women passionately
protesting Maggie’s imprisonment struck. They blew up a
local dam, flooding the town of Everton and indirectly
inspiring a hellish night of crime and chaos.
Fourteen of today’s most exciting contemporary crime writers
will take you to the fictional town of Everton, with stories
from criminals, cops, and civilians that explore the thin
line between the rich and the poor, the insider and the
outsider, the innocent and the guilty. Whether it’s a store
owner grimly protecting his property from looters, an
opportunistic servant who sees her time to strike, or two
misguided youths taking their anger out against any
available victim, The Night of the Flood is an intricate and
intimate examination of the moment when chaos is released—in
both society and the human spirit.
