I love Lincoln Child books. I love it when he writes with Douglas Preston and when he writes on his own.
This book is particularly good and even thought provoking. Again there is the mystery and the very cutting edge of science. I am not a science geek so Child could easily put one over on me and i'd never know. It sounds so plausible to me.
A mysterious something is found in the Atlantic Ocean and of course the military is the one to go and retrieve it. There is an uneasy alliance of the best scientists the US can muster and military oversight. I loved the main character and his outsiders point of view showing us the bubble. I loved the big reveals and all the various peoples.
Really great stuff. If you like techno-futuristic type of thrillers. Science and out of this world stuff. This is a can not miss.
First read "Mount Dragon," co-authored by Lincoln Child, which is quite good. This one is a solo effort and just as good. Similar to "The Abyss" and a couple of other undersea thrillers, but there's an intelligence to this one that takes you away from the similarities. Good plot, good characters, and he's an excellent writer of descriptive action. I recommend it.
Another fantastic read by Lincoln Child. Scary in that the inside look at the military and "secret" operations that take precedence over human safety seems all too realistic. I also enjoy the unknown elements that his books go into, sometimes way beyond the realm of reality, and other times like this one, maybe a little too close. Recommend it highly.
