INTO A CANYON DEEP is a Chris Black adventure story that blends scientific investigation with underwater drama and social commentary as it explores a deep sea canyon's surprising and dangerous secret. Chris and his diving team didn't expect to encounter a deadly secret right outside their bucolic Carmel-by-the-Sea home, but when they stumble upon a canyon being used as a secret toxic waste disposal site, they soon find that their underwater adventure has become deadly. Men have died for less – and in this case, murder is not an impossible outcome; especially since the illegal dumpers have their influence on law enforcement officials, and a person from Chris' past has already died to keep the dumping secret.

Without the support of peers or legal process, Chris and his team are truly on their own – or, are they?

One especially pleasing aspect of INTO A CANYON DEEP is that scientific observations are woven into a story of deception and danger, so readers can expect a tale replete with not just intrigue, but details on investigative processes that delve deeper than most.

From ruthless forces that would destroy a host of lives to keep their secrets, to shootings, goons, strange confessions, and an unexpected touch of romance that springs forth from the carnage that erupts from Chris' investigation, INTO A CANYON DEEP chronicles the various ways the characters find themselves over their heads, facing situations that are challenging and ultimately filled with adverse impact on many lives.

Gripping, science-backed and filled with confrontation and trickery, this is a 'must read' for any reader who likes their thrillers swift and their characters well-developed.

INTO A CANYON DEEP is a fascinating mystery that moves along at a breakneck pace. Author James Lindholm has written a classic plot of greed and evil, with wonderfully rich narration and believable characters. Central California near Carmel-by-the-Sea and the Monterey Bay provides an appealing setting for the book; that area is known as a world center of marine science and also for the whacky characters of Steinbeck’s Cannery Row. The scientists portrayed in the book fit well into that quirky tradition.

The hero, Chris Black, is a marine scientist with skills that would be envied both by the renowned scientist Jacques Cousteau and also by a spy like James Bond. I especially liked the way that the author blended action scenes with a description of the cool science tools used by the hero. As a marine scientist who works at sea with manned submersibles and remote camera systems, I appreciated the accuracy of the descriptions of the underwater tools and their uses.

Most importantly, I couldn’t put the book down after I started to read it. I loved the constant action and intrigue and found myself anxious to see how the complex story would unfold. I give the author 5 out of 5 stars for this book I look forward to reading his next book.
