Former U.S. Navy officer and deep sea diver Schaill displays promise in this exciting techno-thriller about 70 people trapped on the ocean floor inside an obsolete sonar surveillance outpost. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Library Journal Review

Cabot Station, at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean, houses the crews and work subs tending the array of antisubmarine sensors lining the ocean floor, but, victim of military budget battles and detente, it is in dangerous disrepair. As Alfonso Madeira, its captain, prepares to investigate a crippled submarine that has appeared out of nowhere, a fatal accident threatens the station and its crew, hurling the reader into a heart-pounding thriller that takes place above and below the stormy ocean waters. Once launched, the pace never slackens. Schaill knows and loves the world of boomers (subs) and bubbleheads (divers). The reader cares about them all, from the ensign comforting a wounded companion to the aging admiral frustrated by politics. Give Cabot Station to your Tom Clancy fans--they'll thank you.-- Elsa Pendleton, Boeing Computer Support Svces., Ridgecrest, Cal. (c) Copyright 2010.
