Summary

A secret mission. A horror beyond imagination.

In the last months of World War II, the German Navy premiered a new and terrifying weapon. A submarine of incredible range that could strike anywhere, anytime. And it did, prowling the shipping lanes night and day, and striking fear into the Allies. It was just what Hitler needed to turn the tide of war.

Until it disappeared without a trace.

Now, more than seven decades later, the wreck of a previously unknown U-Boat has been found off the South American coast. A submarine so well preserved that it shouldn’t exist. Eager to learn its secrets, a team of marine archaeologists arrive at a unique seafloor habitat to study the wreck up close. But something has survived on the empty sub. A dark and terrifying presence.

Answering the panicked researcher’s distress call, CUSP sends John Decker to assess the situation. What he finds on the cold and lonely ocean floor is unlike anything he has seen before. A horror from the blackest days of the war. And it doesn’t want them to leave. At least, not alive.

This is book six in the John Decker series, but it can be listened to as a stand-alone novel.

If you are a fan of James Rollins, Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, and Steve Alten, you will love the John Decker series.

I have read all of the Job Decker books.

Loved this book. It's the last in the series which is a shame. Hope he writes some more. So interesting. Had you on the edge of your seat x

Another good episode in the John Decker series

John Decker is at it again. This time trying to ferret out weird happenings on board a newly discovered World War 2 U-boat. The boat is strangely pristine for being more than 75 years old at the bottom of the sea. Apparitions have been seen. No, not a ghost story.

The story is aptly claustrophobic with a nice variety of supporting characters. Oh, and someone is not who they seem to be.

I enjoyed the book a great deal and am anxiously waiting for the next volume of the series. Recommended.

Performed Poorly

Pure pulp. Entertaining enough, decent story. The performance is like a badly acted 1930s radio-play.
