The law of averages would dictate that at least one marine would be taken ill or driven nuts. Overall, however, this is a very good read for the techno-thriller fan; like Michael Crichton without the preachiness or condescension. If you're a Lincoln Child, Douglas Preston or Michael Crichton fan, this is a must-read.

Synopsis

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.


From the Paperback edition.

The elaborate setup and the continued drilling all have something to do with a cataclysmic event 600 years earlier, an event that threatens the earth today even as a saboteur threatens the underwater lab. Mildly chilling techno-thriller.

Crisp writing energizes a familiar plot, which builds to an unsettling climax with echoes of Child and Preston's The Ice Limit .

DEEP STORM may not be his finest work, but as a fan, I wasn’t at all disappointed, either. I’ve got a soft spot for underwater adventures, especially those with a bent toward the unknown fantastic on the level of James Cameron’s THE ABYSS, and this novel is fits the bill...

...this book, whilst entertaining, felt lacking in comparison. This was still a tense, fast paced, engaging read and definitely one for Preston and Child or techno-thriller fans.

In the middle, I got really bored, and I skipped over the rest until I got to the end. Lincoln Child drew a few yawns out of me before I finally "finished" the book.
