Michael McDowell’s masterpiece—the serial novel, Blackwater—returns to thrill and terrify a new generation of readers.
The first three volumes—The Flood, The Levee, and The House—introduced the powerful Caskey family of Perdido, Alabama, and chronicled the arrival into their lives of the strange and beautiful Elinor Dammert.
Now the mysterious saga of the Caskey family continues in Blackwater IV: The War.
A family war has ended, but a world war is about to begin—one that will prove yet another boon to the wealthy and powerful Caskeys.
As lumber orders pour in from the war effort, the Caskeys seem at times almost preternaturally charmed.
But secrets flow about the family as well, treacherous as the murky waters of the Perdido River.
A secret hidden deep in the woods, discovered by two young soldiers on their way to the war …
A secret revealed in the waters of a nearby lake, far more dangerous than the alligator that sometimes swims there …
And soon the mysterious Elinor will reveal the biggest secret of all—the secret that will change the Caskey family forever.
Tough Times Publishing proudly presents the return of Michael McDowell’s legendary serial novel, Blackwater.

The War is the fourth book in the Blackwater Saga and continues the story of the Caskey family from Perdido, Alabama. As the title implies, this book focuses on the effect that the war has had on Perdido, the Caskey's Mill and the residents. There have been numerous life changing events happening wi...
The Levee is the second book in the Blackwater Saga and while I enjoyed it, I liked the first book more. Of course, in the first book everything is new which it makes it more exciting but The Levee also didn't really have as much of the creepiness that I thought the first book had. I felt like this ...
The fourth book in this series is just as good as the others. (Though so far the first one holds the best book in the series spot.) It's hard to review a book from a series without spoiling anything, but suffice it to say, that I'm very late for a group read and I co-moderate that group! I'm also ...
This Southern Gothic soap opera of a series continues to be a blast! A levee is built. A distant family member arrives much to the consternation of everyone in the family. That was not the only addition to the Caskey family either. The central mystery continues on in this entry and becomes eve...
