Description

The world's bestselling master of the medical thriller, Robin Cook skillfully combines human drama and high-tech thrills with the latest breakthroughs and controversies of modern medicine. Now, in his most daring novel yet, a mysterious transmission from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean leads a crew of oceanographers and divers to a phenomenon beyond scientific understanding - a discovery that will change everything we know about life on Earth…

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 08, 2000 – A mountain far beneath the ocean is the setting in this latest work from bestselling author Cook (Coma; Contagion; Vector, etc.). Perry Bergman, founder and president of Benthic Marine, is conducting research in a remote region of the Atlantic. The crew has been trying to drill through an underwater mountain that appears to be filled with some liquid or gas, but they've encountered several mishaps, and Perry has flown out to the ship to assess the problem for himself. He's invited to dive to the seamount with several others in a submersible craftDthe most reliable one, the veteran commander tells Perry, he has ever piloted. Suddenly the small ship seems to lose power and is lured deeper into the water and into the underwater world of Saranta, whose stunning, sexually charged residents, the Interterreans, claim their city is much more beautiful and desirable than the fabled Atlantis. Although the Interterreans treat the humans as their special guests, Perry and his crew are desperate to escape. Cook keeps readers turning the pages with fast-paced action and intriguing details about Saranta; while the action may appeal to his teeming die-hard fans, however, this is not one of his better efforts.

Customer Reviews

Abduction

I have read about 75% of robin cook's books which are exhilarating and also informative. This was neither. The ending was quite funny but lacked the author's usual fascination with confusing us with details and providing us with multiple scenarios as to how the book would end.

If you want a quick read with superficial, nit-witted characters and a book without much expectation for a good read this one's for you. Mr Cook and the powers that be released the book without much forethought into appeasing and challenging the avid robin cook reader.

Amazing read

I personally loved this book. It is a well crafted read that keeps you on the edge about what might happen next. If you are looking for a great sci-fi book that truly breaks the typical mold, this one is for you.

Interesting

This book is interesting and compelling. However, just as the last book I read it ends abruptly. The closing sequence becomes very contrived and appears to be forced to conclusion prematurely.
