David Poyer's Down to a Sunless Sea is a cave diving thriller. It's part of a series where the protagonist, Tiller Galloway, has a long history of less than legal and self destructive behavior. Tiller is called in to help an army buddy's widow sell his cave diving business when he dies on a dive. In the process, his estranged son Tad shows up and tags along, further complicating his life. The plot offers no surprises, but the story is good and thrilling. Perhaps the best aspects of the book are the realistic portrayal of cave and technical diving.
