Though Lincoln Child has several titles under his own belt (Utopia, Death Match), you might be more familiar with works such as The Relic and The Book Of The Dead co-written with his novel-writing partner Douglas Preston. His latest novel is entitled Deep Storm, and it’s a solid combination of thriller, mystery, literary sci-fi, and action. The protagonist is former Navy submarine doctor Peter Crane. He’s summoned out to an oil rig located in the North Atlantic where a mysterious illness has affected the crew. Crane is sworn to secrecy, signing his name to several documents to make sure security isn’t breached, and is taken from the rig to an underwater research facility run by the military beneath the oil rig dubbed “Deep Storm.”

Frustrated by strict security measures that hold him back from making any conclusive findings on the illness, Crane soon figures out that there is something more beneath the Earth’s crust than what he was told, which was the lost city of Atlantis. The exciting opening of Deep Storm draws you into the story right away. The audio production is smooth, and the narration by Adam Grupper is absolutely superb. Thematically similar to a previous novel done with partner Preston, Deep Storm is on par with anything Child has written solo or otherwise. The story is tight and the prose crisp, which keeps the story humming along at a good clip. If you loved the movie The Abyss, this will no doubt completely entertain you from beginning to end.
