Into A Canyon Deep is one of those books that starts with a bang and the action keeps going. It is a fun read with an interesting hero, a scientist Chris Black, who is not afraid to get into a fight.
Criminals are dumping toxic waste in the ocean and professor Black is doing research in an area close by. When the criminals see his boat close to their dumpsite they go on the offensive. Attacking Black and members of his crew after they return to port.
Fortunately part of Black’s crew includes a former Navy Seal, Mac Johnson. Black and Johnson dig in to the mystery to find out why they are being attacked. Then work to uncover who are the masterminds behind the conspiracy.
This is a well thought out story. It introduces a cast that I hope will become a long-running series. The setting of a group of researchers on a large ocean-going vessel opens the door to many adventures. I know some other authors have thrillers also set in the backdrop of a boat crew. But Author Dr. James Lindholm offers that “write what you know” insights from being an actual marine biologist.
I would recommend anyone looking for an action-adventure read to pick up Into a Canyon Deep.
