No creature comforts here, just lots of underwater suspense.
Preston and Child are back with the fourth thrilling in the Gideon Crew series.
I didn’t read the first books because I wanted to get to the nitty gritty of the encounter and attempted destruction of the creature; however, the authors do a good job of making this a stand-alone book. There are enough references to the previous events that you get backstory to understand their angst, stress (beyond dealing with a sea creature), and what’s at stake, without rewriting the entire series. The creature’s description is detailed enough to spark imagination and provide plausible interaction.
If you are a fan of creature books, like Alien and Meg, and want an easy read (with a sprinkle of gory details), you might enjoy this trip to the bottom of the ocean.
