Twelve-thousand feet beneath the Atlantic Ocean . . . scientists are excavating the most extraordinary undersea discovery ever made. But is it the greatest archaeological find in history—or the most terrifying?Former naval doctor Peter Crane is urgently summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition spreading through the rig. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below—on “Deep Storm,” a stunningly advanced science research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The topsecret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to a mystery steeped in centuries of myth and speculation. Sworn to secrecy, Dr. Crane descends to Deep Storm. A year earlier, he is told, routine drilling uncovered the remains of mankind’s most sophisticated ancient civilization: the legendary Atlantis. But now that the site is being excavated, a series of disturbing illnesses has begun to affect the operation. Scientists and technicians are experiencing a bizarre array of symptoms—from simple fatigue to violent psychotic episodes. As Crane is indoctrinated into the strange world of Deep Storm and commences his investigation, he begins to suspect that the covert facility conceals something more complicated than a medical mystery.The discovery of Atlantis might, in fact, be a cover for something far more sinister . . . and deadly. Like Lincoln Child’s spectacular bestsellers coauthored with Douglas Preston (The Book of the Dead, Relic), Deep Storm melds scientific detail and gripping adventure in a superbly imagined, chillingly real journey into unknown territory. Child is a master of suspense, and Deep Storm is his most ambitious novel to date.

Deep Storm is the third solo novel by American author Lincoln Child, published on January 30, 2007. This is the first of Child's novels to introduce Dr. Jeremy Logan, the protagonist of Child's solo works.

Lincoln Child (October 13, 1957) is an American author of techno-thriller and horror novels. Though he is most well known for his collaborations with Douglas Preston (including the Agent Pendergast series and the Gideon Crew series, among others), he has also written seven solo novels, including the Jeremy Logan series. Over twenty of the collaborative novels and most of his solo novels have become New York Times bestsellers, some reaching the position. However, with Deep Storm in 2007, Child introduced the character of Dr. Jeremy Logan, a Yale professor of medieval history and enigmalogist, whose role over the course of the series gradually increases with each book.

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.

On the trail of a killer who cannot possibly exist. Jeremy Logan, the renowned "enigmalogist," has often found himself in situations where keeping an open mind could mean the difference between life and death, and that has never.

Right before this book I read FULL WOLF MOON, the 5th book in the Jeremy Logan series. I liked it so much that I downloaded the other four books in the series, with DEEP STORM showing as the first. Well, out of this whole lengthy book, Jeremy Logan is mentioned on one, maybe two, pages.

That clarified, I really did enjoy this offering from author Lincoln Child.

Retired Naval Dr. Peter Crane is summoned to the Storm King oil platform forty miles offshore from Greenland. He finds that his particular background is perfect for a Top Secret operation going on on the sea floor under Storm King. The military has spared no expense in preparing an underwater research/excavation facility in that location. And Dr. Crane had to sign a multitude of non-disclosure statements to even descend to the facility, which the crew has named DEEP STORM.

There was a lot of science thrown at the reader throughout the book but the author did a great job of breaking it down into small parts and explaining it. Dr. Crane was the protagonist of the story and he found his role in the project confusing at times (as did I) but that evened out probably halfway through the book.

The story was exciting and (semi) believable but it did kind of bog down in the middle of the book.

I like underwater stories, adventure stories, thriller stories, and stories of the Arctic, Antarctic, Greenland or Iceland so this book fit these categories very well. I'm going to read TERMINAL FREEZE next, the second book in the Jeremy Logan series, and hopefully Logan will make more of an appearance.

The quality I usually expect from Preston and/or Child. I hesitated a little after first starting this book because I knew I had recently read a novel about an oil rigger in the North Atlantic which was a cover for something going on beneath and I thought maybe I had already read it. No, this was wonderfully different and so much better than the other book (can't remember its title offhand). Peter Crane is led to believe one thing, then another and finally the truth about what is happening at the bottom of the ocean's floor. There is so much security that the reader gets the feeling that it is not necessarily good but that there may be some kind of cover-up. Peter is a Doctor who is brought in to help figured out what is causing the strange sicknesses taking place among the crew. He is like a detective, hunting for the commonality to these illnesses which vary so much that there seems to be nothing in common. Because of the security, at times his hands are tied and has to weigh his signed non-disclosure agreements against the danger that may be present. He walks a fine line between being loyal to his own military allegiance and his desire to help save people. I like all the twists in this book as the reader too is trying to figure out what is really going on in the "facility" under the drilling site. Kept me on the edge of my seat and was brought to an understandable conclusion. One thing I liked was that although there were technical aspects to what was going on, it was more suspense than science fiction so the technology was not too involved for me to understand it.

I figure if you’ve made it this far, you already know with the plot is about, so I won’t waste your time with that.

There are a lot of “ Journey to the bottom of the sea, or journey into space, etc. books”. And in those books everyone usually encounter something bad and can’t get away. End of plot.

But Mr. Child has taken the premise up a few notches! He gives us good character development and really fleshes everybody out. Nothing bothers me more than flat characters. You know what I mean, if you go 30 pages without reading their name you have to flip back to remember who they were. He gives us memorable characters who each have their own stories.

There are about 3 or 4 plot lines going on throughout the book, but it never feels like too many and he wraps them all up by the end of the book. I don’t know about you, but I hated when plot lines feel forced and summer forgotten by the end of the book.

There are numerous things at play in the book and he seems to balance them perfectly. There is a study feeling of suspense and paranoia which makes you want to stay up and read all night.

I would definitely recommend this and all of his other books to anyone who enjoys a good thriller!

The writing, despite the hard work put in, in the form of information and research, felt rather pedestrian, especially in comparison to the smoothness of the Pendergast thrillers, where Douglas Preston perhaps plays a major role. The antagonists, both institutional and outsiders, felt rather enforced, and brought in only to make the protagonists look & act in a more heroic fashion. Even the protagonists remain rather static in terms of growth. Most importantly, there was absolutely no humour present, which made reading NOT suspenseful, but tedious.
Nevertheless, the premise was good enough, and the execution bore all the signatures that one associates with a thriller. As a result, I simply HAD TO devour the book in a short time. That should be sufficient to recommend a book, isn't it?
Yes. Recommended.

If someone told you, they were looking for Atlantis, and you were invited to be in a city beneath the sea, what would you say. Security was tight when Dr. Craig agreed to go. He was was asked to sign non disclosure papers - lots of them. As he passed through many water proof doors, beneath the sea, he wondered what he had gotten into. Many mysterious illnesses were displayed by the people that worked in the sunken city. As he investigated to find the causes,another person, Ping, an oriental women would play a large part in soling the mysterious illnesses. The Admiral showed him the mysterious cube they had found. When a saboteur is discovered, who will get off the rig alive. Read this book! Tense, fast moving and will hold your interest!
