"If you're looking thrillers with international intrigue, Hagberg is a major find!"-Dean Koontz

One of the weakest novels by David Hagberg I've read. As usual his plots move along quickly but in this case it's very thinly woven. He really falls short on the technical aspects of diving making me believe that it's more important to publish the book rather than check his facts. I hope he puts more time into his next novel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Former national security agent Bill Lane is in Kalispell, Montana on an undercover assignment. Bill along with his English wife Frances Shipley head up The Room, a top-secret organization that reports to the White House and Ten Downing Street. Because of the panic of the German government, Bill is trying to infiltrate the militia headed up by Herbert Sloan, who reportedly is an alias of the vicious former Stasi officer Helmet Speyer. <P>Apparently, Helmet has plans to enter the underwater Reichsamt 17, a place where the Nazis committed abominations the Master Race called scientific experiments. Lane knows he must stop Helmet before the man obtains the weapon he desires and flees to hid Eden in Cuba. <P> David Hagberg is known for his thrillers that seem to accurately predict the future. His latest wild ride, EDEN¿S GATE, never slows down as the action goes at SST speed. The rivalry between Helmet and Bill is cleverly designed to keep the action moving forward at a tremendous clip, but that also takes away from understanding what drives the villain although Frannie helps humanize Bill a bit. Still, no one writes better action-packed thrillers than Mr. Hagberg, but let¿s pray that he is inaccurate about superweapons hidden in World War II Nazi bunkers. There are enough mass destruction weapons already under questionable controls. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
