A dog. His computer. The tunnels under New York City.

That’s all Joe Tesla’s agoraphobia has left him with—the inside world, the dark world—and now the black depths of the sea.

I freaking hate picking up a book and not knowing it’s the fourth in an ongoing adventure with well established characters. The best I can do then is look at the book objectively, as a stand-alone novel and rate it as an adventure book where you get to know the people based on their actions and their conversations.

So going in this book, I had little to no expectation to be entertained but I was slowly getting claustrophobia while reading on. Talking about submarines, drowning, being caught underwater and people locked in together in small spaces.
Joe Tesla is always chasing killers through the subways with his dog, Edison, or saving the world from a rogue sub designed by the Swiss, stolen by Russians built by Chinese to be sold to a Arab Prince and hijacked by his sister.

International incidents abound and military strategy is all over the place.
It’s a good thriller and I think somebody in a better place than me can enjoy it more.

2/5.
