BLACK MARIAH, S1 E3
Part of the Black Mariah Shared World
Black Spot Books | August 6, 2021
After the sudden death of her wife Ruby, Rachel Mason wants nothing more than to escape the world and grieve in peace. When the place she’s sought for sanctuary becomes another site in a series of strange events sweeping the nation, Rachel will have to brave the Alaskan wilderness and find the strength to survive the wild—and a world she no longer feels part of.
Former cop turned mystery novelist, Rachel Mason wasn’t ready to live without her wife Ruby, but that didn’t stop the hiking accident that claimed Ruby’s life from happening. Heartbroken, Rachel left behind the noise of the East Coast to hide away in her parent’s guest house in Juneau, Alaska with nothing but her grief, her memories, and her two dogs.
When she is startled awake during a weekend camping trip by the sound of a low-flying plane, Rachel returns to town to find her parents and her dog have disappeared—along with everyone else in Juneau. The only clues to the disappearance of over thirty-thousand people are a strange white dust, the tail end of a ferry in the distance, and a caravan of blacked-out military vehicles she’s never seen on the island. Concerned that all of her late wife’s “doomsday predictions” are coming true, Rachel is forced to lean on the knowledge Ruby taught her if she’s to find her family, and—as the first hints of snow arrive in the mountains—stay alive
