A woman’s attempt to avenge her sister leads to a fantastical adventure in Jeremy C. Shipp’s novel The Merry Dredgers.

Seraphina is a birthday party princess, a pet feeder, and the only person left who cares about her spirited, troubled sister, Eff. When Eff suffers catastrophic injuries in an apparent “accident,” Seraphina takes it upon herself to investigate the strange and isolated community, the Merry Dredgers, that Eff has been living with. Along the way, she guards herself against physical, psychological, and romantic threats. …

The Merry Dredgers is a fun, offbeat mystery novel set in an unforgettable location.

The Merry Dredgers

The Merry Dredgers

Seraphina Ramon will stop at nothing to find out the truth about why her sister Eff is in a coma after a very suspicious "accident." Even if it means infiltrating the last place Seraphina knows Eff was alive: a once-abandoned amusement park now populated by a community of cultists.
        Follow Seraphina through the mouth of the Goblin: To the right, a wolf-themed roller coaster rests on the blackened earth, curled up like a dead snake. To the left, an animatronic Humpty Dumpty falls off a concrete castle and shatters on the ground, only to reform itself moments later. Up ahead, cultists giggle as they meditate in a hall of mirrors. This is the last place in the world Seraphina wants to be, but the best way to investigate this bizarre cult, is to join them.
