Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A glamour project 30 years ago, Cabot Station--an undersea sonar surveillance outpost in the North Atlantic--has seen its role guarding against missile sub attacks diminished by spy satellites and the emergence of glasnost. But a mystery submarine is detected and then, as Soviet subs bend every effort to prevent investigation, disaster strikes the station. Its crew is trapped on the ocean floor during an Atlantic storm, and commander Alfonso Madiera has to bring his men and women out of a seemingly hopeless situation. Retired U.S. Navy officer Schaill puts modern diving technology to good use in a story whose appeal is enhanced by its unfamiliar setting. His description of Cabot Station's operating routines will please techno-thriller fans, while the rescue mission, pitting human beings against an unforgiving sea, provides narrative excitement. Although the Russian subplot is anticlimactic (the mystery sub has neither technological nor political significance), first novelist Schaill displays promise as a writer of undersea adventure. (Dec.)
Library Journal
Cabot Station, at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean, houses the crews and work subs tending the array of antisubmarine sensors lining the ocean floor, but, victim of military budget battles and detente, it is in dangerous disrepair. As Alfonso Madeira, its captain, prepares to investigate a crippled submarine that has appeared out of nowhere, a fatal accident threatens the station and its crew, hurling the reader into a heart-pounding thriller that takes place above and below the stormy ocean waters. Once launched, the pace never slackens. Schaill knows and loves the world of boomers (subs) and bubbleheads (divers). The reader cares about them all, from the ensign comforting a wounded companion to the aging admiral frustrated by politics. Give Cabot Station to your Tom Clancy fans--they'll thank you.-- Elsa Pendleton, Boeing Computer Support Svces., Ridgecrest, Cal.
