300 years after our wise and powerful leaders turned their backs on science, and chose Global Nationalism over Global Warming, the Earth is left flooded.
Human Survivors now belong to one of three opposing Kingdoms competing relentlessly for dry land in a surreal new world of water – where anything that floats is a boat, anything the human body can digest is food, and any piece of recyclable trash is a priceless commodity worth killing for.

But how does Colette circumvent her resentful and suspicious male colleagues and find the killer when a woman on the force is not yet allowed to even pack a gun, let alone, arrest anyone ..?
