Présentation de l'éditeur



The Devil's Deep
The Devil's Peak: amazon.com/dp/B005FCCDO4
The Devil's Cauldron: amazon.com/dp/B00DWYZMZ4


Chad Lett is a mute witness to an attempted murder. He suffers from total paralysis, locked within a prison of his own mind. After years of silence, he establishes contact with a young nurse's aid through a single blinking eye, but then she is abducted and a staff member begins to administer dropperfuls of cleaning solution into his communicating eye.

A heart-pounding thriller that will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned, the Devil's Deep is a top rated suspense that travels from the hell of a long-term care facility to the rain forest of Costa Rica. And a crime committed under tropical waters, the dive known as El Bajo del Diablo--the Devil's Deep.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Engrossing 30 janvier 2011

This is a can't put down, must keep reading suspense novel.

A man in law school, a social worker, a home for people with no hope of being rehabilitated, a family torn apart by money and a devious doctor with hopes of regaining his past glory, give the author a great palette upon which to paint an awesome page turner.

Wes Pilson has a twin brother, Eric, who is retarded due to lack of oxygen at birth. Eric had some bruises and Wes, a law student specializing in medical law, signs on to work at the Riverwood Institution to check on the conditions there. Wes is confronted by two workers concerned over the disappearance of one of their friends and enlist Wes to help them find out what happened. Wes enlists the help of Becca, a hospital administrator/social worker. Soon they are embroiled in a life or death match that begins to uncover family secrets long buried but never forgotten and takes them to Costa Rica and back.

This is a well written book with marvelous characters - some good/some really bad - and they tell a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat with each additional page. This is one of those rare books where you want to tell the world you can't do anything until you finish it.

If you enjoy a pure adventure, I highly recommend this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Just OK 18 février 2011
Par C. Ricucci - Publié sur Amazon.com

From what I can see, my review will put me in a minority of one; but that's OK -- we don't all think alike.

This book gets off to a great start, hooked me from the first few pages. I thought it was a good read up to about the halfway point, when the violence starts getting more grisly, often gratuitous.

It's not what I would consider a thriller -- my idea of a thriller is a story that holds you spellbound and makes it hard to put the book down, which is not the case here -- and I was disappointed to figure out so early in the story the mystery which isn't revealed until almost the end. The story also becomes more far-fetched and unbelievable as you get deeper into it. In places it seems disjointed, not credible in terms of how the characters are connected.

If you like a book that's part mystery and part ordinary story-telling, and if the blood & guts don't bother you, you might like this one. It's just not my cup of tea.

I do, however, have another highly rated book by this author which I intend to read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Had potential, but ultimately unsatisfying 23 février 2011

The first third of this book worked fairly well. The premise behind the novel instantly captured my attention: a paralyzed patient (Chad Lett), locked within his own mind with no way to communicate that he is not actually a vegetable. The mystery aspect of the novel was intriguing as well. When he finally finds someone who understands that his blinking patterns register conscious thought, this woman (Rosa) vanishes under suspicious circumstances.

A law school student, Wes Pilson, decides to take a semester to work at the facility to keep an eye on his little brother, who is a patient at the facility. Wes is assigned to Chad's room, and he eventually begins investigating some of the unexplained happenings at the facility.

The set-up of the plot line was fine. It pulled me in and held my attention. However, things started to devolve once the reader starts to uncover the why, how, and who. There were a couple of scenes that just were not believable. I understand readers are expected to buy some plot contrivances for the sake of good fiction- but this was stretching the suspension of disbelief just a bit far for my taste.

The other thing that bothered me about the novel was the profanity. I know not everyone has a problem with profanity, but for those like myself that do, I usually include this in my reviews so others can know what to expect. This novel used just about every curse word, including several uses of the "f" word (once inserted in between Jesus and Christ). As a Christian, this kind of misuse of Jesus' name is very offensive to me- as is the misuse of God's name (g.d. which popped up numerous times). I expect to find some profanity in most mainstream novels, but this one had too much for me.

As far as violence goes, several people are murdered and attacked, but I can't say there was a huge gore factor to any of it. Sexual situations- there are a couple of scenes where the antagonist has sex with a young immigrant girl. I suppose the detail in these scenes was added to underscore the sordid character of the antagonist. However, it just felt voyeuristic to me.

I wanted to like this book, but it just didn't work for me. Despite the problems I had with the plot line of this book, I think this author is a talented writer and has imagination. I would give his books another try if not for all the objectionable content.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A page turner 29 janvier 2011

This is another great book by Michael Wallace. The action moves quickly, the characters are interesting and varied, and the plot has several unexpected turns. Using the patient with locked-in syndrome creates some particularly engaging sequences, and the book builds to a thrilling conclusion.

This book is fantastic.

It is gripping and compelling all the way through, never losing urgency and tension. The mystery is revealed so carefully, never too much revealed at a time. I felt invested in the story right from the first page.

Despite it being a thriller, the characters are well drawn, interesting, varied, and believable. The dialog is realistic.

I'm sensitive to the pacing of stories and how much is told v.s. shown. I thought this book kept the balance of both those things perfectly. It's been a long time since I felt so engaged in a story. I was completely engrossed all the way through.

There's a reveal half way through that upped the tension so much and made me care so much that I was reading late into the night, wanting to know how it turned out!

I've never read anything by Michael Wallace before, but I will be reading more of his work in the future. I am definitely a fan now!
