An Edgar Award-nominated mystery from the author of Jurassic Park!
To recover a sunken yacht, a diver must enter the world’s most dangerous waters.
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 book wasn't what I expected. Based on the synopsis, I expected more action but it was heavy on characters
sitting and talking.I realize it was written more than forty years ago, and since then, literary conventions and
readers' tastes in the genre have changed, and the book was written early in Crichton's career (and under a pseudonym). Overall, it wasn't bad as short mysteries go, and it was
interesting to try Crichton's early work.
