Sworn to secrecy, Dr. Crane descends to Deep Storm. A year earlier, he is told, routine drilling uncovered the remains of mankind's most sophisticated ancient civilization - the legendary Atlantis. But now that the site is being excavated, a series of disturbing illnesses has begun to affect the operation. As Crane is indoctrinated into the strange world of Deep Storm and commences his investigation, he begins to suspect that the covert facility conceals something more complicated than a medical mystery. The discovery of Atlantis might, in fact, be a cover for something far more sinister...and deadly.

"Child delivers a well-crafted and literate science-fiction thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"The story is imaginative and filled with wonder. Lovers of deep-sea adventure (and in particular fans of the James Cameron movie The Abyss or Michael Crichton's novel Sphere) will want to plunge into this one. (Booklist)
This is a typical Child's adventure with an original twist and a double take at the end. I thought it much superior to the last book in his trilogy, "Book of the Dead". The story has good characterization and is hard to put down. I did wonder how the lovable Dr. Flite could wander around without showing up on any of the high security employee lists, but what the heck.
Lincoln Child has another mystery with a twist, just the right mix of villan and environmental danger. The narrator is excellent, good voice and command.
This is an ok story. The concept is interesting but the characters are underdeveloped and the science is shaky at best.
I'm not sorry I bought the book but He's written better.
Deep Storm is a thriller that held my attention from begining to end. Plenty of action. If you liked Riptide another of Lincoln Child's stories, than you must read Deep Storm.
I couldn't stop thinking about this plot when I wasn't in my car listening. I love Lincoln Child and this book lived up to my expectations. Great twist.
I couldn't stop listening. I enjoyed it a great deal as it kept the suspense up and the story going and the ending was beyond my wildest imaginations.
