Water Proof

By (author): Aaron Bushkowsky

When a self-driving car hits an extra on set and a lawsuit is filed, Andy sets out to bankrupt his own production company by making a movie about his weird and romantic life of infidelity. With his wife Anna, and her best friend, he embarks on a location-scouting trip to Desolation Sound, but the trip takes a disastrous turn when the friend goes missing and they have to call in search and rescue.

Not wanting the search to expose his affair with his wife’s best friend, Andy steals a memory card out of her camera. A memory card with evidence of the affair.

But Andy’s not as discreet as he thinks and the memory card is stolen from him. With the disastrous support of his best friend, Will, Andy makes a series of bad decisions in an attempt to recover it, leading him further from Anna than ever before. Will their marriage finally reach its breaking point?

Reviews

“While many readers will find the narrative complications enough to keep them engaged there is a good argument to be made that the major impact of the novel is not the actionpackedoddball story but the voice through which the story is told Andy after all is a scriptwriter It is his words and his sensibility that colour every word Andy loves words especially words that he both takes seriously and really really doesnt Many writers are told that they need to develop a voice Andy has a voice in spades”
