The Waters’ are a strong, prominent black family in Philadelphia with access to the good life. Money, power, and lack of respect flow through the tight-knit family as destruction threatens to rock the foundation they are all trying to keep together.
Judge Waters and his wife, Lillian, work overtime to save their marriage, but when hatred and bitterness take over, all bets are off. Once the fighting starts, their children Keenan Jr., Naomi, and Saint go off into the world, wearing their parent’s drama as a coat of arms. They then lie, cheat, and steal, causing havoc in the lives they come across, just like their mother and father taught them to do.
Ultimately, damaging secrets and decade-old lies will all come crashing down around them. When death comes knocking, The Waters Family and their shattered fate hang in the balance, wondering what’s coming next . . .
Short Excerpt from Dark Waters by Nick Haskins
Minutes later, with the sirens blaring and flashing lights all rushing in their direction, Mia felt they were saved. She cries as she begs Keenan Sr. and her son to hold on. She assures them, “Help is on the way!”
Sitting frozen in agony from her broken thighbone, Mia hears one of them breathing. She then hears one of them grunt. She starts to panic because she doesn’t hear them both. “Keenan, baby, wake up!”
She then calls out to her son with blood smeared on her face. “Kannon, sweetheart, wake up!” Mia fears the worse, but they’re both still alive. However, they both won’t stay that way. One will recover, and one will die right on the operating table . . .
