Ex-Navy SEAL Jack Kirkland surfaces from an aborted underwater salvage mission to find the Earth burning. Solar flares have triggered a series of gargantuan natural disasters. Earthquakes and hellfire rock the globe. Air Force One has vanished from the skies with America’s president on board.
Now, with the U.S. on the narrow brink of a nuclear apocalypse, Kirkland must pilot his oceangoing exploration ship, Deep Fathom, on a desperate mission miles below the ocean’s surface. There devastating secrets await him—and a power an ancient civilization could not contain has been cast out into modern day. And it will forever alter a world that’s already racing toward its own destruction.

Driving over 100,000 mile a year since 1983, I got hooked on audible books on tape 30 years back. I now listen from my bicycle 2 hours a day
after Amazonia and this mess I'm wondering about the Rollins fans.
Maybe there was something there in earlier books that was remotely believable or interesting but given these two I'm at a loss to see how he ever got published.
I like thrillers and page turners but there has to be some reasonableness to the story and some intelligence in the characters and these two have neither.
When I'm driving across country I'm inclined to listen to almost anything to pass the endless miles but these rank so far down my list of over 500 audible books I can't think of any that were worse. This was better than Amazonia but that isn't saying much.
Love James Rollins stories but REALLY dislike John Meagher as a narrator. For that reason it will only get 4 stars from me.....not the 5 stars the story deserves.
