A lot about the movement of the Arctic cap.

I really enjoyed the action, the premise was realistic, I loved his 'secret' government agency and loved the director of it. Wouldn't it be something if all this was possible?

His characters are well drawn and realistic and what I really liked is you see bad guys as more than cardboard figures, he gives some insight into them.

I hadn't read Steve's other Deep Black series, this was my first one. However this book stands alone just fine and he feeds you e

A complex mix of characters, locations, drama, and action without going overboard and becoming confusing. Everything began to come together in the later pages and the book finished well.

I always enjoy international thrillers, but this was OK.

This book was so interesting. I have always known that I would never want to be in a sub and now I am very, very sure of it. But, the suspense of the water crushing them kept me on the edge of the seat. A little slow in the gate but a rush ride and finish that was unbelievable.

Really enjoyed this Deep Black novel. Refreshing to find an author who realizes there is more than one political threat in the world. And always a treat to see how Coonts will use high-tech to complement human intelligence.

Lots of technical writing, and a bit wishy-washy on the plot beyond "They're bad and we're good." I would like to get to know more about a couple of these characters, though, and will read another in this series.

Recommends it for: Anyone looking for an easy, thoughtless read.
An OK read for a book you pick up at the check-out aisle of the grocery store when you are stocking up on medicine for the flu the is kicking your butt. Nothing inspirational or memorable about it though.

Pure escapism here with the story being part Mission Impossible and James Bond adventure. Character development is razor thin but the action is fast paced with no dead spots. Worth reading.

Quite a treat to read in the various players and how a prior event can catch with you. Shows where people must make a moral stand

These are all thought provoking in some way. The author challenges me to find the facts in his fiction.

Love this series. Totally entertaining but enough technical depth to not be fluff.

It was good for what it was: a spy novel. I'm just not into spy novels that much.
