Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"[I]maginative 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, 1987) will want to plunge into this one." Booklist

Review:

"Never predictable and always fascinating, Child's thriller will be remembered as one of the best of the year. Highly recommended." Library Journal

Review:

"Mildly chilling techno-thriller." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Storm begins with an intriguing idea (Atlantis), then diminishes it into something serviceable but far less interesting. (Grade: B-)" Entertainment Weekly

Synopsis:

In this instant New York Times bestseller, Child takes readers to a top-secret laboratory 12,000 feet beneath the icy Atlantic and into the search for the greatest — and most deadly — archeological find in history.

After reading most of Michael Crichton's books, and some Robin Cook and Clive Cussler, I was looking for another "techie thriller" author, and after some searching I found Lincoln Child (and Douglas Preston, who he co-authored many books with). Deep Storm is a great read and a good blend of adventure, thriller, technology, and a little sci-fi.
