“[Rollins] will make your toes curl and your free hand clutch the armchair as you speed through the pages.”
Tampa Tribune

“James Rollins knows adventure.”
Chicago Sun Times

A sensational early work from “one of the most inventive storytellers writing today” (Lincoln Child)—the third pulse-pounding adventure novel from perennial New York Times bestselling thrill-master James Rollins—Deep Fathom is an extraordinary story of desperate survival and mysterious discoveries. The acclaimed creator of Sigma Force seamlessly combines action, science, lore, and breathtaking suspense in this classic tale of a lost civilization and a wondrous journey to a beguiling world beneath the sea. Part Michael Crichton, part Douglas Preston, part Indiana Jones, yet completely, exhilaratingly Rollins, Deep Fathom is an undersea roller coaster ride that never slows down from the first page through the explosive climax.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 2/11/2014

    " Pretty cool sci-fi rendition of solar flares, extinguished species, ancient people and the end of the world sort of. Add a few heros and one main good guy along with the bad guys and the imminent end of the world and a good yarn emerges that pulls somewhat of a surprise ending although in hind sight the clues were all there for the picking up. A good read ESP if you want to be entertained. Would make a good movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan Schnell | 2/8/2014

    " very good book, i liked it a lot. love this author, action adventure with real science and technology. good stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brendan | 1/24/2014

    " I feel that if I had read this book before all the others I would have liked it more because this was definitely not Rollins' best work. The story line was a bit choppy and unbelievable and some of the characters could have be developed a bit more. But don't get me wrong the story is still very entertaining and fast paced. I would still recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading "Indiana Jones" type books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Synova | 1/23/2014

    " another exciting read from james Rolllins. Not as much fun as the Sigma Force series in my opinion, but it was nice to get some more back story on Lisa (from The Black Order) and spend some time under sea and exploring missing cites like Atlantis. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tory Wagner | 1/20/2014

    " Another great adventure, but I;m noticing that he is starting to repeat some of his ideas from book to book. Still great fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/18/2014

    " If you like James Rollins books, or books with improbable plots and dull characterisations, you will enjoy this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Faye Bierbower | 1/11/2014

    " This read was not so good as his later books; the artful blend of reality/fiction is missing here. It didn't keep me awake at late hours, desperate to know the next dramatic offering. I suppose they can't all be amazing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 1/3/2014

    " Very good story. The writing? It suffers in comparison with his later books I'm not certain this one would have made me seek out others of his so I'm glad I read this now while waiting for more. :-) The ending? Uh, naw. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/1/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Donhiser | 12/15/2013

    " Really enjoyed this James Rollins spins a great tale. Has a little terrorism, corrupt government, time travel. Totally unbelievable but that's what makes it fun "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.M. Fisher | 1/28/2013

    " What's not to love with a story that begins with a total eclipse--the historic omen of disaster? I enjoyed this story for the breadth of sciences Rollins researched to craft this conflict thrill ride of world-wide proportions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathi | 9/12/2012

    " Once again, a really good book. I prefer his Sigma Force series over the stand-alones, but it was still a pretty good book. It was a page-turner till the end. Although I found the ending somewhat unbelievable, hence only three stars. "

    " A good thriller, If you have a fear of drowning do not read this book.
    Great action, intresting combination of mysteries of the ancient world and advanced technologies. A fin read, however the big twist at the end was a little predictable. "

    " I always enjoy books by James Rollins and this one was no exception. Interesting historical research combined with futuristic scientific applications. Add in a pinch of wounded heart hero meets woman to make him whole again. Good versus evil. Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 1/6/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 10/12/2010

    " James Rollins is always a fun read. It is a roller coaster of excitement, good innovative chase scenes with characters you like. Not a ton of depth in this book, not too much plot, but enough to entertain. I gave it 4 stars due to enjoyment, but that was a little generous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 9/4/2010

    " good show. Looking for hardback. "

    " just started it but it has had one heck of a start very good "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 8/11/2010

    " The extent to which these "New York Times Bestselling Author" thrillers are gripping me is hilarious!

    Update: Finished it a few days ago. It was good, but he took it a little too far at the end there. Took away from the book as a whole. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 7/12/2010

    " Far-fetched plot and ending but fast-paced and well-written. The author is a veterinarian -- his "dog scenes" were good. The story was interesting but not one I'll read again.
