Publisher's Summary

After barely escaping the perilous expedition to the Antarctic to locate a WW2 Nazi Ice Station Dave Purdue once more elicits the help of historian Dr. Nina Gould and award winning investigative journalist Sam Cleave. When the maintenance submersible from Purdue’s oil drill, Deep Sea One, goes missing off the coast of Scotland in the North Sea, he discovers the wreck of a sunken WWII German submarine beneath.

Inside, Purdue, Sam and Nina find an ancient book containing various ciphers and clues implicating the location of one of Hitler’s most sought after relics, the legendary Spear of Destiny. With Purdue’s new and mysterious bodyguard, Calisto, they hire a guide and set out to the breath taking beauty and danger of the mighty Tibetan Himalayas to seek out a shrine mentioned in the antique book. They manage to obtain an important clue before having to escape the wrath of the mountain shrine’s guardians.

When unexplained freak storms start to plague the offshore oil platform, some of the crew fear that something ancient and powerful is at work. The discovery of an antique Roman chest reveals what Nina, Sam and Purdue may have been looking for, but is it the real thing or is it a decoy? While examining the artifact, Nina realizes that there is much more to the legendary sovereignty of the Spear and the real reasons why Hitler coveted it.

But with the British Secret Service infiltrating Purdue’s consorts and the notorious Order of the Black Sun making their appearance, there is another kind of storm brewing on the horizon. A menacing and primordial tempest from obscurity is creeping over the North Sea to engulf Deep Sea One.

Deep Sea One leads the listener on a roller-coaster ride in search of a legend. Packed with breathtaking suspense and nerve-shredding action, Deep Sea One is a thrilling listen for all fans of action, suspense, and intrigue.

    "Theft of name!!"

    Not a good book and I seriously dislike the fact that the author uses the news "Preston" and "Child". Isn't that a form of plagiarism? Wonder if the real Preston and Child have seen this. Use your own name and quite riding their short tails for your advancement. Wish I could get my money back.

    "MI-6"

    It's MI-6 not M-16. Does this narrator live under a rock?

    Story itself is a good distraction, if not a bit predictable.

    I love to be scared, does anyone write anything scary anymore? Maybe I have just become numb.

    "Not for me"
    What did you like best about Deep Sea One? What did you like least?

    This is the second in a series, so I listened to it. This book seemed to be all over the place. Not nearly as interesting as the first and the first was only so so.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Preston Child? Why or why not?

    Not right now. This book really disappointed me.


    Which character – as performed by Dan Lawson – was your favorite?

    See, there ya go. I can't even remember her name.


    Do you think Deep Sea One needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Although there is one.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this on the hope that after the first book was a little intriguing, the second would be better. It was not. I won't be reading any more of this series just now and will be suspicious of the author for awhile. The narrator was very good though.

    Story
    "Not so good."

    After reading the Wolfenstein book, I was very disappointed in this book. Too many times, the outlandish circumstances portrayed were unable to suspend my my disbelief. while trying to present very challenging and dangerous situations,, solutions just seemed to magically and unbelievably appear. not enough time to give examples, but trust me, my perception was real, at least to me. I 2nd not be reading any more works by this author.

    "Passable story, lousy narration"

    I ordered the 3 books in this series with high hopes as I have enjoyed many other works by the author. I was extremely disappointed when it suffered from poor narration. Spoken words should flow freely, as in conversation-not stiltedly. Mispronunciations of common words are quite frequent-hearth spoken as heerth, for example. Good accents but so choppy it's as if a robot is reading. Will never purchase anything else if read by Dan Lawson!

    "Amazing how the narrator can kill a story"
    Would you try another book from Preston Child and/or Dan Lawson?

    From Preston & Child, yes. Dan Lawson, no.


    Would you recommend Deep Sea One to your friends? Why or why not?

    If it had a different narrator.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dan Lawson?

    No. His narration irritated the heck out of me. Every "A" in a sentence was a long A. No one speaks like that! EVERY ONE WAS A LONG A! Not to mention the mispronunciation of many "big" words. I'd love to enjoy the story. His differentiation of characters is good, but the rest just kills any rhythm the narration should have. I'm really not picky, but this one was a jab to the brain every time.

    "Terrible narration!"
    What did you love best about Deep Sea One?

    The characters were interesting


    What did you like best about this story?

    The historical ties


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dan Lawson?

    Scott Brick. His narrations are impeccable, and he's fantastic at this sort of adventure novel.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, not at all.


    Any additional comments?

    First of all, his way of speaking is very unnatural. The narrator says a hard A instead of a soft A throughout the entire book-all characters. Do you know anyone who speaks that way? I don't. Secondly, he mispronounced multiple words, which is so annoying. It derails the story. I find it hard to get back to listening to the story with that distraction and I have to skip back to hear what I missed while I was mentally complaining about yet another mispronunciation.
