Deep Storm | [Lincoln Child]

Deep Storm

Former naval doctor Peter Crane is summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to an ancient mystery.

Publisher's Summary

Former naval doctor Peter Crane is urgently summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition spreading through the rig. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to a mystery steeped in centuries of myth and speculation.

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "oops...forgot to mention...."

    I forgot to mention what a great narrator Scott Brick is. He does dialogue particularly well, and is a master of creating mood.

    "deep storm"

    i have really liked other works with this author, but I couldn't get into this book. I listened to half of it and then gave up.

    "Could be better"

    The book has quite interesting plot, but it could be much better if not overused and misused "suspension points". They are used too often and in very irritating way - you know, that someone in the book knows something, and you as a reader are the only person, that don't know what it is :-). That not the type of suspension I expect. Luckily these suspension periods are quite short, but what is even worse - eventual explanations are too often nothing but disapointing.

    "Don't Bother..........."

    This is not your typical Lincoln Child novel. The characters and storyline just aren't believable. I finished it only because I was hoping that it was going to get better. It didn't.
    The only bright spot was the narration. Scott Brick is always a pleasure to listen to.

    "Abyss the book.....lame"

    Watch the movie "the abyss" same as this book but the movie is good. Author seems to have taken most of the plot and story line and just used it in his book.
