Overview

Golden Cove today appears to be a charming New England seacoast town. But there are dark stories from decades past—when the town had a different name. Captain Joe Bierden’s heard them all—tall tales to entertain the tourists, he thinks. He doesn’t hesitate to hire his boat out to a research team eager to begin a month-long diving expedition.
  
So no one is more surprised than Captain Joe with the—thing—that the team finds in an offshore underwater cave. Their first mistake is in bringing it ashore. Their second is believing it can't survive on land.
 
Their third is thinking that it’s the only one of its kind…

I picked this book up because of the picture of the cover and I am a huge fan of Christopher Moore and it was right beside his stuff in the store. I was sucked in immediately and found it hard to put down to go to sleep. The character descriptions are so great, I was able to place an imaginary person in my mind for each one. I love spooky ocean stories and this was an A+ in this category. Very fun and entertaining book with unpredictable twists and turns that make it a book you will remember for many years.

As the New England seafaring season is almost over, the professor Dr. Martin Ward come to Bowden's Point to hire Captain Joe Bierden to take him and his three associates to Devil's Reef near the town of Golden Cove so they can explore an underwater cave. Although he, his wife Belle and his best friend and first mate Charlie Moncrief want to refuse the offer, the money is too good to say no.-------------- On his biggest yacht Isabella's Dream, Joe, Charlie and a couple of local teens take the customers for their month long exploration. The crew is shocked by the hostility of the townsfolk. As the professor, his athletic assistant Diana and a TV famous parapsychologist along with Jacob and Mary Parsons explore Devil's Reef seeking evidence of a city Innsmouth rumored to be destroyed by the Feds, ghost ships and Deep Ones oceanic humanoids attack the crew and clients.---------------- This is an excellent horror thriller due to a fully developed cast (human and paranormal) who seem genuine so that when the impossible occurs, James A. Moore makes it feels possible. Filled with action and suspense, DEEPER hooks readers into a one sitting tale as fans will wonder who will be left swimming in the ever increasingly darker and sinister aptly titled Golden Cove.---------------- Harriet Klausner

A real good Lovecraft story set in modern times . Makes you think what's possible

This had possiblities, but really fell flat. There is no sense of cosmic horror that is at the heart of most Lovecraftian tales. The story is told in a very flat, grounded tone and it changes the deep ones from horrors to be feared, to B monsters to fill full of holes. Emotional points in the book suffer the same fate. A certain character's death that should have charged the action with something more than testosterone. Has almost impact other than more reason for testosterone boost. My other issues are the plot holes and bad choices made by the characters. A massacre on a public beach with more than 100 dead might possibly be hidden in the '30's, but in this day and age, not a chance. I won't go into others because of spoilers, but there are many, "Wait, why did he/she just do that..or go there."

It was a little slow to start, but was worth it to stick with it. A great mystery with action, drama, and a bit of tragedy thrown in. It was an enjoyable read with interesting characters that you can't help but love, or love to hate.
