After barely escaping the perilous expedition to the Antarctic to locate a WW2 Nazi Ice Station Dave Purdue once more elicits the help of historian Dr. Nina Gould and award winning investigative journalist Sam Cleave. When the maintenance submersible from Purdue’s oil drill, Deep Sea One, goes missing off the coast of Scotland in the North Sea, he discovers the wreck of a After barely escaping the perilous expedition to the Antarctic to locate a WW2 Nazi Ice Station Dave Purdue once more elicits the help of historian Dr. Nina Gould and award winning investigative journalist Sam Cleave. When the maintenance submersible from Purdue’s oil drill, Deep Sea One, goes missing off the coast of Scotland in the North Sea, he discovers the wreck of a sunken WWII German submarine beneath. Inside, Purdue, Sam and Nina find an ancient book containing various ciphers and clues implicating the location of one of Hitler’s most sought after relics, the legendary Spear of Destiny. With Purdue’s new and mysterious bodyguard, Calisto, they hire a guide and set out to the breath taking beauty and danger of the mighty Tibetan Himalayas to seek out a shrine mentioned in the antique book. They manage to obtain an important clue before having to escape the wrath of the mountain shrine’s guardians. When unexplained freak storms start to plague the offshore oil platform, some of the crew fear that something ancient and powerful is at work. The discovery of an antique Roman chest reveals what Nina, Sam and Purdue may have been looking for, but is it the real thing or is it a decoy? While examining the artifact, Nina realizes that there is much more to the legendary sovereignty of the Spear and the real reasons why Hitler coveted it. But with the British Secret Service infiltrating Purdue’s consorts and the notorious Order of the Black Sun making their appearance, there is another kind of storm brewing on the horizon. A menacing and primordial tempest from obscurity is creeping over the North Sea to engulf Deep Sea One. Deep Sea One leads the reader on a roller-coaster ride in search of a legend. Packed with breathtaking suspense and nerve-shredding action, Deep Sea One is a thrilling read for all fans of action, suspense, and intrigue. A word from the author: Hello and thank you for your interest in my book. It has come to my attention that some people have been mistaking my books for those written by the famous author duo Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. This is not the case. I wish to clarify that I am not, by any means, related to Douglas Preston or Lincoln Child, Lee Child or any other author called Preston Child. I hope this clears up the confusion.

    Tom Casey

    A well written and exciting action packed novel full of twists and turns. It really does keep you in suspense right to the very end. Audio narration is ok, clear but sometimes a little rough with the voices. I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.”

    Ich muss gestehen, dass das zweite Buch wesentlich besser war als das erste, bei dem mich einerseits das Setting nicht wirklich interessierte, aber mein größtes Problem waren die beiden Hauptcharaktere. Nina erfüllte dieses typische Klischee aus amerikansichen Filmen einer unglaublich zickigen Frau, die alle Männer toll finden (weil es im Drehbuch steht, denn anders ist es nicht zu erklären). Auch Sam war extrem klischeehaft, da er sich aufgrund eines traumatischen Ereignisses eigentlich langsam Ich muss gestehen, dass das zweite Buch wesentlich besser war als das erste, bei dem mich einerseits das Setting nicht wirklich interessierte, aber mein größtes Problem waren die beiden Hauptcharaktere. Nina erfüllte dieses typische Klischee aus amerikansichen Filmen einer unglaublich zickigen Frau, die alle Männer toll finden (weil es im Drehbuch steht, denn anders ist es nicht zu erklären). Auch Sam war extrem klischeehaft, da er sich aufgrund eines traumatischen Ereignisses eigentlich langsam zu Tode soff. Das zweite Buch macht einem Nina nicht unbedingt sympathischer, denn seit der Vorsitzende ihrer Abteilung ein Buch über die Eisstation Wolfenstein veröffentlicht und sie nicht einmal als Co-Autorin nannte, hat sie das Jahr damit verbracht einen Flunsch zu ziehen und wie ein pubertierender Teenager davon zu träumen, dass irgendein unwahrscheinliches Ereigbnis eintritt, welches sie sofort zu einer unglaublich erfolgreichen Forscherin macht. Sie trifft wieder auf Sam, auf den sie noch immer sauer ist, weil er es gewagt hat seinen Job zu machen. Nachdem dieser ihr aber mal kräftig die Meinung gegeigt hat, konnte ich mich endlich auf die Handlung konzentrieren. Purdue heuert Nina und Sam an, um den Speer des Schicksals - die Lanze, mit der Longinus Jesus am Kreuz getötet hat - zu finden. Die Geschichte ist so eine Art Mischung aus Indiana Jones und James Bond. Ersteres, weil sie ein biblisches Artefakt mit mystischen Kräften suchen. Wenn Ihr am Ende von Jäger des verlorenen Schatzes jedes Mal zusammenzuckt, wenn die Bundeslade geöffnet wird und alle Nazis zum Schmelzen bringt, dann ist dieses Buch nichts für Euch. James Bond weil Sam und Nina gegen eine Organisation ähnlich wie Spectre antreten. Endlich erfahren wir, wer eigentlich dieser Orden der Schwarzen Sonne ist. Das Buch ist im Grunde genommen recht kurzweilig, allerdings hat der Autor generell mit 3 Schwächen zu kämpfen: 1. Die poetischen Anwandlungen der Hauptcharaktere: ich möchte nicht einmal wissen wie oft die Charaktere auf einmal vollkommen unmotiviert über das Aussehen der anderen ins Schwärmen kommen. 2. Sinnlose Perspektivenwechsel: in einem fünfzeiligen Absatz kann es schon passieren, dass der Autor die Ereignisse aus drei verschiedenen Blickwinkeln schildert. Dies ist nicht nur verwirrend, sondern trägt nicht unbedingt zur Story bei. Ich könnte ja die Reaktion aus der Sicht verschiedener Charaktere zeigen, um die Unterschiede zwischen diesen aufzuzeigen, aber tatsächlich liest sich der Absatz ungefähr so "Nina las in einem Buch, Callisto stiert in ihren Rucksack und Sam fummelt an seiner Kamera herum". 3. Unspektakuläre Action-Sequenzen: eine gute Action-Szene zu schreiben ist schwierig. Diese darf nicht zu lang sein und sollte auch nicht unbedingt jeden Handgriff bis ins kleinste Detail schildern. Zu lang sind Childs Action-Szenen sicher nicht, das ist aber dann auch das einzig positive. Sie werden meistens so oberflächlich abgehandelt, dass sogar der Angriff von Eingeborenen sich lies wie ein Besuch im Supermarkt. Konkret auf dieses Buch sei außerdem noch anzumerken, dass das Ende sehr abrupt ist. Sam und Nina sind eingeschlossen und dann taucht wie aus dem Nichts die Kavallerie auf. Und ich meine aus dem Nichts, denn die Person, die Hilfe schickt, wusste nicht einmal wo sich Sam aufhielt. Da ich eine Verbesserung in der Qualität bemerkt habe, werde ich aber vielleicht noch ein weiteres Buch lesen. Allerdings nur weil dieses im Kindle Unlimited Abo enthalten ist. Kaufen würde ich diese Bücher auf keinen Fall.

    I Keep Hoping.. While a quick and easy read, the things that bothered me about the first book in the series have only continued in this one. Very cliched characters and plot points that jump all over the map. Too many things trying to be crammed into one book, from ideas to whether it's going to be more mystical or historical thriller. The main hero is pretty fleshed out but the main heroine grates on your nerves more than once and you find yourself wondering, as this is her second Adventure if s I Keep Hoping..

The main hero is pretty fleshed out but the main heroine grates on your nerves more than once and you find yourself wondering, as this is her second Adventure if she can finally just grow back bone or if the author just has some sexist tendencies. I will keep reading the series if only to see if it can get better but my expectations are pretty low right now, which isn't always a bad thing. This book only took me a couple hours to read and to be fair, I knew I wasn't going to get Shakespeare heading into it. I can't go as far as recommending the series just yet but I'm willing to stick with it for now and hope that it gets better as it goes along.

    Interesting plot and characters... Disjointed pacing The writing on the first couple books of this series had been disjointed in places and sometimes hard to follow with not enough time spent fleshing out complete ideas or in some cases glossing over potentially interesting plot points. There also seems to be a pattern of strange jumps in pacing mid chapter. The characters and plot are interesting enough to keep me going, but there are a few times I've felt trapped from the book. Do recommend ta Interesting plot and characters...

    The story was a good read, but I found the characters rather crass for professional people, really, a noted historian flinging the fuck word around like a crass ally cat? The author has to pick up a book by Preston/ Child to see what good writers are about and what it takes to be a good writer, so dissatisfied with a good book gone bad.

    Deep Sea One is the continueing story of Steve, Nini, and Sam as they travel the world looking for Nazi atrifacs. This time they for a Nazi sub in the Artic and it a strange book in it. The book was dated back to Jesus Christ and had many other secrets in it. Like where the Spear of Densey was. Of the the spear head that speared Jesus's side.

    Great series This series is along the lines of The Da Vinci Code with its use of history and suspense. Reading out of order is not a good idea with this series, because the characters bond, grow, and grow on you quickly.

    I really liked the way this story started and the way it left us at the end of the book, but in between, it sort of got jumbled for me. It was not bad and it kept me listening. I am taking a break from this series, but I will return because I am interested in how it unfolds.

    The Black Sun, Mystical Order of the Third Reich, Survives This second book of the series, features Sam and his friend/object-of-unrequited-affection, Nina once again documenting an adventure of billionaire employer David Perdue...on an oil rig in the North Sea.

The secret Mystical Order called "The Black Sun" also seems to want the spear, and the international arms merchants that Sam has twice thought destroyed chase the same goal. Recommended as an enjoyable adventure read, with just a taste of Forbidden History.

    Enjoyable I really enjoyed the history in this book and the. Aim characters are evolving nicely. The only problem I have with the book is the plot takes a nice long time to develop and then it ends very quickly. Hoping the rest of the series is this much fun. But I hope the rest end a bit more to tempo.

    Preston continues to play with the Nazi fiction. Here we find the Spear of Destiny as a focal point of the story. I love how he manages to make old tropes new again. He thinks it through and twists you around his little finger. Fans of this style of fiction will find themselves enthralled with his storytelling style.

    Enjoyed A quick enjoyable romp with characters we met in Book 1 as they search for the Spear of Destiny. This installment can easily be enjoyed as a stand alone. A few surprises to make it interesting and lead us into the rest of the books in the series. If the author is reading this -- if you used Leviathan one more time, I was going to throw up.

The characters were not ones I could either warm to or hate and the storyline seemed disjointed and took great leaps at some points which left many questions unanswered.
