Review: The Ocean Dark: A Novel
The Ocean Dark: A Novel by Jack Rogan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Actually the author of this is Christopher Golden, writing under Jack Rogan.
That was the main reason for me to buy this book, sounded like a Clive Cussler-novel.
Could have been shorter, nearly all major characters (5-8?) get a flashback-background story, and I could have done with less.
Good use of romance conflicting with job or task at hand, short sex-scenes add to the story, and are ok.
At one point I think there is a procedural mistake, where someone sprains his/her ankle and a few short pages later hears it break but nothing is mentioned after that - the person should have been unable to do most of the running around in the book after that.
Parts of the story could also have been by the Douglas Preston - Lincoln Chil-Duo of writers.
Still, except for being to long, highly recommended, to fans of Christopher Golden and Clive Cussler, and also maybe Preston-Child-fans.
