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.

Many years ago I heard part of Mitch Albom's "Tuesdays with Morrie." When I got a notice about the avability of this book as a Kindle/Audible Whispersync option, I jumped on the opportunity!

Well Rewarded in this tremendous book. What a special story of life and how ours touches others!

Everyone should read this uniquely prepare narrative about each of us.

Even with family history from Scotland, England, Wales, Sweeden, Denmark and Germany; along with interesting stories from each; I hadn't thought a novel about a Genealogist would be so captivating. Thanks - I look forward to the next novel!!
