Ex-Navy SEAL Jack Kirkland surfaces from an aborted underwater salvage mission to find the Earth burning.

Solar flares have triggered a series of gargantuan natural disasters. Earthquakes and hellfire rock the globe. Air Force One has vanished from the skies with America's president on board. Now, with the U.S. on the narrow brink of a nuclear apocalypse, Kirkland must pilot his oceangoing exploration ship, Deep Fathom, on a desperate mission miles below the ocean's surface. There devastating secrets await him—and a power an ancient civilization could not contain has been cast out into modern day. And it will forever alter a world that's already racing toward its own destruction.

Review: Deep Fathom

User Review  - Corrie - Goodreads

This book was really stupid. In fact, it was stupid in so many ways that it should win some kind of award. On the bright side, it did keep my interest as I was sitting in a large, uncomfortable room for hours waiting to see whether or not I had jury duty. Read full review
