I purchased this book over a decade ago, and from the very first paragraph, I was entranced. The realities of what Perry and his crew discovered (no spoilers here), and the possibilities for what that discovery could mean for mankind, are jaw-dropping. But there's a not-so nice guy after it as well, determined to do anything to extend his life.
Even after 14 years, I can still vividly remember the opening and final scenes of this excellent book. That's how good it is.
If you like Clive Cussler, you will love Alton Gansky and his Perry Sachs mysteries.
