Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Smart and suspenseful…This is a big-boned thriller, one that will make a terrific summer movie as well as a memorable hot-day read.” Publishers Weekly
“When softening his voice and using an Irish lilt for the female captain’s commands, or using a whiny, spoiled tone for the financier's tantrums, Brick is adept at changing his expression and inflection to match each characterization. This is a highly effective presentation that matches a great story.” AudioFile
“Another solid thriller…The action is what keeps readers turning the pages.” Booklist
“A tempestuous adventure of high seas, high stakes, and high excitement…This natural thriller is not to be missed.” School Library Journal
“Exciting narrative, and enough graspable science and plausible-seeming theories to bring readers happily up to speed and keep them climax-bound.” Amazon.com, editorial review
