Publisher's Summary

After barely escaping the perilous expedition to the Antarctic to locate a WW2 Nazi Ice Station Dave Purdue once more elicits the help of historian Dr. Nina Gould and award winning investigative journalist Sam Cleave. When the maintenance submersible from Purdue’s oil drill, Deep Sea One, goes missing off the coast of Scotland in the North Sea, he discovers the wreck of a sunken WWII German submarine beneath.

Inside, Purdue, Sam and Nina find an ancient book containing various ciphers and clues implicating the location of one of Hitler’s most sought after relics, the legendary Spear of Destiny. With Purdue’s new and mysterious bodyguard, Calisto, they hire a guide and set out to the breath taking beauty and danger of the mighty Tibetan Himalayas to seek out a shrine mentioned in the antique book. They manage to obtain an important clue before having to escape the wrath of the mountain shrine’s guardians.

When unexplained freak storms start to plague the offshore oil platform, some of the crew fear that something ancient and powerful is at work. The discovery of an antique Roman chest reveals what Nina, Sam and Purdue may have been looking for, but is it the real thing or is it a decoy? While examining the artifact, Nina realizes that there is much more to the legendary sovereignty of the Spear and the real reasons why Hitler coveted it.

But with the British Secret Service infiltrating Purdue’s consorts and the notorious Order of the Black Sun making their appearance, there is another kind of storm brewing on the horizon. A menacing and primordial tempest from obscurity is creeping over the North Sea to engulf Deep Sea One.

Deep Sea One leads the listener on a roller-coaster ride in search of a legend. Packed with breathtaking suspense and nerve-shredding action, Deep Sea One is a thrilling listen for all fans of action, suspense, and intrigue.

Narrative is very very robotic.

Narrator detracts from the whole story. Struggled to keep listening. Story is good but I don't think I can listen to another one with the same Narrator.

Theft of name!!

Not a good book and I seriously dislike the fact that the author uses the news "Preston" and "Child". Isn't that a form of plagiarism? Wonder if the real Preston and Child have seen this. Use your own name and quite riding their short tails for your advancement. Wish I could get my money back.

Narrator is a moron

Story is good but the narrator is an idiot. Along with mispronunciations of any work of more than 3 syllables he refers to MI 6 as M SIXTEEN!

However it’s better that the narrator for the rest of the series.

Bit of a fantastical story

The narrator does a good job with Russian German and Scottish accents. Unfortunately, he makes the women and the billionaire sound as if they are snakes or some other kind of reptilian trying to speak English. It was really quite annoying and hard to get past. I did finish listening to the book and did not think it was at the same level of quality as the first book.

Deep Sea One

This drags a bit. The narrator is awful. He should spend less time trying to speak with accents and learn basic English pronunciation! Every time he mispronounces a word it detracts from the story.

Started out good, but finished in a rush

Started out good with characters, plots and subplots fully developed. But after a few chapters in the plots were cut short, as if this was an abridged version. By the end I definitely felt cheated out of a lot of details and plot twists. As usual, this narrator was only mediocre, with frequent mispronounciations.

MI-6

It's MI-6 not M-16. Does this narrator live under a rock?

Story itself is a good distraction, if not a bit predictable.

Not for me

What did you like best about Deep Sea One? What did you like least?

This is the second in a series, so I listened to it. This book seemed to be all over the place. Not nearly as interesting as the first and the first was only so so.

Would you be willing to try another book from Preston Child? Why or why not?

Not right now. This book really disappointed me.

Which character – as performed by Dan Lawson – was your favorite?

See, there ya go. I can't even remember her name.

Do you think Deep Sea One needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. Although there is one.

Any additional comments?

I read this on the hope that after the first book was a little intriguing, the second would be better. It was not. I won't be reading any more of this series just now and will be suspicious of the author for awhile. The narrator was very good though.

Not so good.

After reading the Wolfenstein book, I was very disappointed in this book. Too many times, the outlandish circumstances portrayed were unable to suspend my my disbelief. while trying to present very challenging and dangerous situations,, solutions just seemed to magically and unbelievably appear. not enough time to give examples, but trust me, my perception was real, at least to me. I 2nd not be reading any more works by this author.

Good story spoiled.

A very entertaining story. Pure fantasy but showing great imagination. The overall effect is spoiled by the poor narration. I was completely immersed in the story, then the narrator referred to M sixteen and I came out of my reverie to shout MI (as in eye) 6 at my iPhone! Spoiled the ambience completely. There were several other mispronunciation

Boring badly written

It is hard to believe that this book is by the same authors as the Pendergast novels which I really enjoyed. It is badly written, and boring. It seems very perfunctory and lacks cohesion and interest.
