Deep Storm by Lincoln Child

Dr. Peter Crane gets called to an oilrig in the ocean to help figure out the illness that is spreading among the workers. When he gets there, he finds out there is an advanced research facility called “Deep Storm” built two miles underneath the ocean. They have found something that they think is the lost city of Atlantis. But it turns out to be so much more and Dr. Crane tries to slow them down but no one wants to listen to him. Will anything good come of this?

This is my first by Lincoln Child and was impressively pleased with it. It was suspenseful, it kept me on the edge of my seat, and I found it to be very easy to follow. A lot of the technical things that were going on were explained very well. That made the book more enjoyable to read when I could understand what was going on and what they were trying to do.

The characters were great! Dr. Crane was really trying to help even though he seemed to be stopped at every turn. He really did all he could in his power to help the people. My other favorite character was Hui Ping. She was a scientist and ended up taking over the encryption of the codes that were sent to them from the ocean deep. Stubborn as the day is long but struggled to work through a few situations. I don’t blame her, since no one is perfect.

I enjoyed this book and will look for other titles by this author. I give this a 4/5 because it was intense and well written. But it took me a long time to get through it because there was so much information to process.
370 pages, Thriller

Next three romance novels. lol
