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)
Deep Storm has a great story line that keeps your attention through the entire book. It is a deep-sea adventure/mystery with twists and turns all around. Lincoln Child's descriptive story line keeps your mind visualizing the setting and wishing you were there to explore with the characters.

This book has it all, mystery, action, science fiction. I listen to books in the car and this one had me sitting in parking lots trying to find a good place to pause. But I found my self just having to stop as this book unfolds in a way that will cause you to enjoy every minute of it.

First time I've listened to this author's book and completely enjoyed it, if you like mystery and a little science thrown in you'll enjoy this as well.

story is ok. the end of the book really opens a lot of possibilities that could have been explored in greater detail and scope
it's a nice read
I love the author and Scott Brick is a flawless reader but this book reads like an abridgement even though it isn't. It felt like the proverbial 'you know what' hit the fan far too quickly. I love the way the author writes and would have been very happy with more build up to the denouement.
I enjoyed the twist, but was disappointed that there was no Atlantis. The author pulls from real history as well as legend to create an interesting story.
A bit unbelievable but well written.

1. If it had ANY believable characters.
2. If the plot wasn't so incredibly contrived.
3. If The author had been able to describe the setting so that you had ANY idea what was going on (although maybe it's better to have been confused; what I understood seemed stuuupid!)
4. If the laws of medicine, physics, and nature hadn't been so blatantly violated.
5. If SOME consideration of human psychology had been within the knowledge of the author.
I could go on, but you get the point. Especially poignant was when he tossed in a contrived love interest in the final two pages.
In fairness, I loved the ending. At last, the book was OVER.
