Twelve-thousand feet beneath the Atlantic Ocean . . . scientists are excavating the most extraordinary undersea discovery ever made. But is it the greatest archaeological find in history—or the most terrifying?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 topsecret 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. Scientists and technicians are experiencing a bizarre array of symptoms—from simple fatigue to violent psychotic episodes. 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. Like Lincoln Child’s spectacular bestsellers coauthored with Douglas Preston (The Book of the Dead, Relic), Deep Storm melds scientific detail and gripping adventure in a superbly imagined, chillingly real journey into unknown territory. Child is a master of suspense, and Deep Storm is his most ambitious novel to date.

It isn't often that scientists are the good guys. Usually they are the bad guys or at least facilitate things going horribly wrong or they are socially inept losers. This time it is the military trying to ruin the planet.... I suppose you can't do away with every cliche.Lincoln Child of the widely s...

4.0 Deep Storm: A Novel
I may not remember every detail in the books I’ve read, but I usually remember the titles and the fact I’ve read them. So I didn’t think it bode well for Deep Storm when I started reading it without remembering I had already read it years before. Was it really that forgettable?No, not forgettable at...

4.0 Deep Storm
This was a good fast-paced book. With 62 chapters, a prologue and an epilogue you can expect a quick read. The setting is quite good. In the beginning you are led to believe that Atlantis has been found but the truth is quite grim. As the main character discovers the secrets of that station the pace...

The review I wrote in 2007 isn't as informative as I would wish:"Lincoln Child stumbled in his initial two solo works, he had good ideas but had not yet mastered the art of writing on his own, but in his third solo outing, Child appears to have acquired the talent to write on his own.Very interestin...
