Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A heart-pounding rappel into the chasms of darkness.

Whitney Burke is a renowned cave researcher and marine biologist who has abandoned her livelihood after losing an assistant in a tragic caving accident. Though Whitney vows never to enter Labyrinth Cave again, her husband and daughter join a NASA-sponsored caving expedition.

When the expedition is overtaken by a group of criminals, Whitney must overcome her paralyzing fear to save her husband Tom, her daughter Cricket and, ultimately, herself.

Mark T. Sullivan's driving narrative explores the cave's terrifying subterranean atmosphere, a range of fascinating characters, and heart-stopping action sequences. Sullivan drops the reader into the story with force and momentum in this intensely told and adroitly crafted thriller, an astounding tale of adventure.

Review:

"[E]xpertly crafted...one of the most exciting yarns of this millennium....The novel is honeycombed with plot twists and cliffhangers, giving it a slightly contrived, Saturday matinee feel...but Sullivan's sensitively constructed characters give it weight and depth. This is a great summer read." Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Review:

"[A] solid, exciting, well-told thriller....Sullivan...is finally getting the hang of fiction, offering us characters we can believe in and a plot that is simultaneously fantastic and entirely plausible. Recommended for fans of fast-paced adventure novels with a scientific bent." David Pitt, Booklist

Review:

"Smashing glass, thudding copter blades, rumbling boulders: Labyrinth has popcorn written all over it." Kirkus Reviews
