Down to a Sunless Sea, A Tiller Galloway Underwater Thriller.
St. Martin's Paperbacks
I had a friend at work hand me a novel the other day and ask me this
question "Is what they say in this book about diving technically correct?"
Being the curious person that I am, it took me all of about two seconds to
decide to read this book. Let me tell you a bit about my reading first.
I hate suspense thrillers, Especially ones about the underwater world. I
find that most writers do not really do a lot of research into what it
is all about, let alone something as in depth as cave diving. So you can
imagine my surprise when as I am reading this book, one I like it, two
it is very correct. What impressed me most about this book was its attention
to detail, right down to what the actual caves look like inside. When he
was writing about Peacock Springs State Park he mentioned the unmanned pay
booth out front, and went into great detail when it came down to entrance
to the cave, as well as the cave itself.
The short synopsis of the book:
A man dies in a cave for an unknown reason. The wife calls an old navy seals
buddy, Tiller Galloway to come down and run, then sell his diving operation.
Not being Cave certified, he questions what he is doing there, but dives
anyway. Tiller Galloway, finds a few misleading things about his old army
friend, and questions his death. That is all I will tell you, but I will
say this, David Poyer has written many books on underwater adventures. I
am just about to start another one "Hatteras Blue" and I am looking forward
to reading this one as much as I enjoyed reading Down to a Sunless Sea.
Technically, correct in every way, well worth the read.
