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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Interesting premise

I struggled a bit with the narration as the narrator voiced all characters as though every word they said was pivotal apart from that, but the story was good, very visual with lots of intrigue.

A new author to me.

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.

Not his best...

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.

What a ride

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.

Excellent and Suspenseful

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.

Same old same old.

This book relies on too many emergencies as plot points and is like a shadow of a much better book like The Ice Limit. Still, There’s a few interning ideas in here, a good airport read.

Don't Let the Title Fool You

I kept waiting for it get better. It didn't!
Deep Storm sounds exciting, but the story was boring. It starts leading to believe one thing but it was about something very different. I almost didn't finish it. It could have been told in 2 hours.

Disjointed

Seems like you are held I. A bubble and the author did not know exactly where he was going.
Left you confused. Story needs to be developed more.

I'm glad that's over!

that was exhausting! Not a fan of the narration style. I might have enjoyed the book more if I could have read it myself.
