In this explosive new thriller, one of the most incredible and frightening discoveries mankind has ever faced is about to surface.
On an oil platform in the middle of the North Atlantic, a terrifying series of illnesses is spreading through the crew. When expert naval doctor Peter Crane is flown in, he finds his real destination is not the platform itself but Deep Storm: a top secret aquatic science facility, two miles below on the ocean floor. And as Crane soon learns, the covert operation he finds there is concealing something far more sinister than a medical mystery—and much more deadly.
Best known as the coauthor (with Douglas Preston) of such bestselling thrillers as Dance of Death, Child delivers a well-crafted and literate science fiction thriller, his third solo effort (after 2004's Death Match). Peter Crane, a former naval doctor, faces the challenge of his career when he investigates a mysterious illness that has broken out on a North Atlantic oil rig. Sworn to secrecy, Crane is transported from the rig to an amazing undersea habitat run by the military that's apparently pursuing evidence that Atlantis exists. Psychotic episodes among the scientific staff as well as the activities of a saboteur that threatens the project's safety keep Crane busy, even as some of the staff members confront him with concerns that exploring the Earth's core could be fatal to all life on earth. Crisp writing energizes a familiar plot, which builds to an unsettling climax with echoes of Child and Preston's The Ice Limit. Author tour.

Good book, interesting characters, good story line. Really didn't want to put it down, even though I think it wasn't too suspenseful. I thought it was easy to figure things out.
Btw, this is NOT really a Jeremy Logan book. He is in this for just a few pages. Not a main character at all
Very exciting. Great start to a new series. Definitely recommend this book. A real page turner.
Lincoln child really knows how to keep the pace fast and the reader glued to his/her seat. This book was much better than his previous solo novel "Death Match" by a long shot. It obviously doesn't quite compare to the Pendergast novels, but what does? Overall "Deep Storm" was a fantastic read in typical Lincoln fashion. Any Child fan will enjoy it, highly recommended.
