Publisher's Summary

They call it simply "the object."

It sits at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean, waiting.

Waiting...for what?

An American research ship disappears in the Arctic's Chukchi Sea only to reappear a few days later. When a special US Coast Guard unit boards the vessel, they find it deserted, its power grid wrecked, two bombs waiting to explode, and an even darker secret hidden below her decks.

A few miles across the international maritime boundary, a massive Russian oil platform harbors its own secret. Below the behemoth lies a mysterious energy source so powerful it threatens to topple the balance of world power in favor of Moscow.

The Russians will to kill to protect it. The Americans will kill to stop its recovery.

And still...the object waits.

Probably The best book

This is the best audiobook I've listened to this year. A tense thriller that grabbed me and held me till the very last word. It is a great storyline and plot. I will be looking for more from this author. Coupled with superb narration. I received a free copy of this audio book at my request and voluntarily leave this honest review..

A military style thriller with paranormal elements

*This book was given to me by the author at my request, and I provided this voluntary, unbiased review.* 3.8/5 While I do enjoy a good military strike/Tomy Clancy type thriller, this one felt flat for me. I do feel that it was well-written and the plot was interesting enough, it just wasnt for me. As such, I left a fair rating for what I felt was true to what the rating should be rather than a biased rating. I may not be interested in this line of books, but I would definitely recommend this author and book to fans of this genre and style.

Solid sequel

This is a solid sequel to the Amazon Code. There are however a bunch of new characters whose motivations are meant to be mysterious... but it makes them oddly 2-D. There’s as much action as can be had in a single station with cold outside. Overall though it answered a bunch of questions raised in the Amazon Vode, it was way too long for its plot with a bunch of seemingly pointless “have to get from Ato B” drama and gun battles. I think this is the end of this series for me. I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a review.
