Miles below the North Atlantic Ocean, Dr. Peter Crane is summoned to identify a mysterious illness plaguing the workers at a research station. The huge facility is 12-stories high but has a lot of secret off-limit areas. The remoteness of the facility adds tension to the story.
Although initially recruited to identify the illness, the main plot is the question of what is underneath the surface floor of the ocean where the researchers are digging. As in any new work environment, Dr. Crane has to sift through his experience to find out who he can trust. A saboteur is identified and then it’s a race against time to save the entire operation.
DEEP STORM did hold my interest but unfortunately I could see certain plot developments coming. Child’s writing style is fine for a book such as this; there are some very imaginative ideas for which I give the book high marks and some cliché prose that made me go “ugh”. The book is ok but it wouldn’t be among my top recommendations.
