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'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.
Reader of all things science fiction, fantasy, mystery and paranormal.
Riddled with unexplained inconsistencies toward the end and burdened with a lot of rather spineless, unintelligent side characters, I can't give this book more than 3 stars.
In addition, every action in the book takes so long to execute, I feel like I could have gotten the abridged version and not missed a thing.
Deep Storm brings a creative story line that keeps the reader guessing but only for half of the book. The second half is very predictable and the author feels compelled to drag us through melodramatic descriptions of everything...including climbing the stairs.
The first part of the download is great. Save your time and make up the ending. The time you spend on the second half could be spend better elsewhere.
