Deep Storm

Deep Storm by Lincoln Child is a first rate action adventure sci-fi novel. Child is always highly recommended for any book he co-authors with Douglas Preston. Let me assure Preston/Child readers that in Deep Storm Child is equally enjoyable. In Deep Storm, Peter Crane, a naval doctor, is recruited to help diagnose a mysterious illness that has broken out on a North Atlantic oil rig. Once he arrives, Crane discovers that the real action is below the oil rig at a secret underwater excavation project code named Deep Storm. Once he has security clearance, Crane is told that they have discovered the lost city of Atlantis, but soon discovers that this is a cover story for the real secret. Meanwhile, the mysterious illness that many in the crew are experiencing exhibits a wide variety of symptoms and Crane is stumped as to the cause.
