Description

An Edgar Award finalist from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Jurassic Park: A diver enters dangerous waters to recover a sunken yacht.

The Grave Descend lies under more than sixty feet of clear blue Caribbean water, guarded by a coral reef and schools of hungry hammerhead sharks. Raising it would be a near-impossible task, but James McGregor is suited to the impossible. An expert diver, he makes his living exploring sunken ships. But there's something strange about the wreck of the Grave Descend. How did she sink? Why do none of the survivors tell the same story? And what was the cargo inside her hull? To answer these questions, McGregor will have to contend with the deadliest sharks around—both underwater and on land. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Michael Crichton including rare images from the author's estate.

        March 10, 2014
        The storytelling skills Crichton brought to classic thrillers like Jurassic Park and The Great Train Robbery are evident in this suspense novel penned under his John Lange pseudonym. Expert diver James McGregor, an American expat, has steady work and a comfortable life in Kingston, Jamaica, until he's offered a job that seems hinky from the start. Arthur Wayne, a marine insurance representative who seems unfamiliar with the basics of his job, wants McGregor to help with an unusual salvage assignment. Just the day before, the yacht, Grave Descend, went down after an explosion, an incident that somehow has been kept secret. He offers McGregor any pay within reason to dive to the wreck to determine the source of the explosion and whether the ship can be recovered. McGregor is suspicious of Wayne's intentions when he schemes to sink another vessel to make the accident appear to have occurred a day later. McGregor's suspicions heighten when he gets an anonymous call warning the diver that he's being played. This escapist page-turner may not linger long in the memory, but it meets its modest goals.
