""An epic thriller about a secret Nazi submarine and its mission . . . a tasty combination of Ken Follett and Clive Cussler" from the award-winning author ( The Novel Pursuit ). Cruising from the sub pens of Trondheim under the cover of darkness-undetected by the sonar scans of Allied enemies-Kapitaenleutnant Erich Heinz Bruckner leads the experimental submarine U-5001 in a last-ditch effort for Nazi victory. But their sinister 1945 voyage ends mysteriously: Bruckner and his crew vanish, along with their classified weapon of mass destruction. Seventy years later, ex-Navy diver Dexter Bucklin stumbles upon an unknown vessel in the depths of the Chesapeake Bay and is consumed with the need to discover its original, terrifying mission-inadvertently alerting a worldwide cabal that knows all about the U-5001 . . . and the keys it holds to even greater secrets. A thriller in the tradition of Ken Follett and Robert Ludlum, Submerged follows both Bruckner and Bucklin in a narrative that spans generations of adventure and horror-Lovecraftian tales at their most strange. As these men's lives converge, a third element surfaces, influencing the Kapitaenleutnant and the ex-Navy diver to make increasingly desperate decisions, ones that will shape the future of civilization. Thomas F. Monteleone expertly blends history, fact, and fiction with a subtle dose of the supernatural in this Lovecraftian page-turner. Praise for Thomas F. Monteleone "Monteleone has a dark imagination, a wicked pen, and the rare ability to convey an evil chill with words." -Dean Koontz, New York Times -bestselling author "Tom's an expert storyteller." -F. Paul Wilson, author of The Keep and Deep as the Marrow "A vastly entertaining novel of horror and suspense [that poses] difficult questions about the nature of man, God and the devil." - Los Angeles Daily News."-- Provided by Freading.
