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)

    "If nothing else, a way to spend a few hours"

    I guess that my problems with this book are that so much of it does not make any sense. The premise is great, but the technical points are pretty askew and the small parts distract so much from the whole that it leaves the book, for lack of a better word, aching. For example, one part of the story (set on an ultra-modern undersea facility) has a Marine standing guard outside of a door with an M-1 carbine. Why would a present day U.S. Marine stand duty with a weapon that has not been used outside of ceremonial functions since WWII? There are lots of other little quibbles with this book, some small ones as above and others with the plot line as a whole. Overall the story was ok...but it kept making me go "Huh?"

    "Exciting"

    "Deep Storm" is a worthy summer listen. The pacing of the story is really what makes the novel so entertaining. I found myself waiting and wondering what comes next often in the book, which is an attribute of a well written thriller.

    Scott Brick is a known quantity to most and performs in his typical, solid-yet-not-overwhelming narration style.

    Worth the time.

    "A good listening experience"

    If you enjoy the author, you won't be disappointed. The book gets a little slow in the middle, the author repeated things that seemed unnecessary. The ending was a surprise.

    "Not bad"

    The narration was good, but the overall story was less than thrilling. The SciFi portions of the story were interesting, but there just wasn't much tension buildup in the story, though the author tried. The characters weren't very engaging.

    "Loose Ends"

    I usually love reading SciFi technothriller-type books, but this one left me cold. I had so little visual impression, there was no "Wow!" factor, and what should have been fantastical, "Abyss"-like, descriptions were as flat and shallow as a mud puddle. As well, the characters had no sparkle, and even the lead character was uninteresting. Everybody (save the whacko bad guy) seemed to have zero personal motivation for being where they were. A couple of characters were thrown in for spice, but they wound up being jarring anachronisms, rather than sly commentators on the scene. A major disappointment.

    "Good Story"

    It got a bit techical at times. Like, the author did a little research and then wanted to impress himself with what he just learned, but the story line flowed well and was interesting.

    "recommendable"

    the end is may be a little too 'soft' and could have been more dramatic, but the whole story is not bad at all. I enjoyed it.

    "Imaginative storyline"

    Enjoyed the very detailed and elaborate descriptions of the undersea facility - Lincoln Child did this well in UTOPIA and did it excellently in DEEP STORM.
