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