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)
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.
Lincoln Child's Deep Storm was a great listen. It is up there with the Baldacci's and other thrillers. You won't be disappointed.
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.
This is truely a great book. When you start reading it is very hard to put it down again before the end. The writer catches you from the first line, and then you are cauth in the deep. It is the story of a doctor going to a secure military facility to counteract a disease that are sweping through the facility. When he gets down below the ocean he finds out, that not all is what it seemes onboard the base. I will not go into the story and telling you the outcome, it is only fit to say that suddenly the safety of the entire facility is placed on his shoulders. The way that the facility and the people are describet is very compelling. the author is giving a insight into the thoughts of the main carecters, withch is rerely seen in this kind of novel. I was very much in daught wheather to give it 4 or 5 stars. I decided to give it 4 because there are some places through out the book, where there are to long sequences, that should be shortened. Not many, and as I said it was a difficult choise. But don't take my word for it, give it a chance and judge for yourself.
"Shades of The Abyss"
I enjoyed this book, easy-listening storyline, and excellent interpretation by Scott Brick. Oil platforms, deep submersibles and a hint of aliens - make a good film!
"Good story but the narrator puts you to sleep"
The narrator totally spoiled this for me. His voice was monotonous,the characters voices all sounded the same and was often in danger of putting me to sleep. In fact I didn't even finish listening to it. He made it so boring!
Shame as the story is great ( I've read the book) it has , twists and turns that keep you guessing to the end.
"scientific and technical flaws but enjoyable"
The story itself is an interesting concept, easy to follow and enjoyable. Even though the story has several techical flaws it has unexpected twists and turns that keeps the listener interested and thirsty for more. The final twist, the answer the facilities been looking for from the start is such a thought provoking idea that you'll be thinking about it long after you have put the book down.
