Overview

Rising from the Abyss, it hungers!!!
Around the world in eighty days in style! This proud claim, made by the Carcharodon Shipping Company, is about to be put to the test as its newest and most magnificent submersible cruise-liner, the Neptune, sets sail on its maiden voyage. Among those onboard is Ulysses Quicksilver, dandy adventurer and hero of Magna Britannia, enjoying a well-deserved sojourn after the traumatic events of Queen Victoria's 160th jubilee celebrations. But only days out from the undersea city of Pacifica disaster strikes. A brutal murder is committed and then an act of sabotage sends the Neptune plunging into the abyssal depths. Trapped at the bottom of the sea, for the survivors, their problems are only just beginning. Far below a decades' old secret awaits them. The Leviathan has awoken. Rising from the abyss it hungers and when it hunts none shall escape its primeval fury!

As far as internal inconsistency goes, you don't need to look any further than the protagonist's "unerring sixth sense" that flares up when "two iron-strong hands seized him from behind," or when the man he's in the middle of a fight with throws an explosive right at him, or even better, when "everyone heard a piercing scream." Seems as if the normal five senses are all that are necessary there, and all that are used. If you like thick prose and an inconsistent story framework, then try this one.
