Press Briefing by Ms. Agnes Callamard, Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. I suspected at least three other characters before finally identifying the true killer. Hill set-up a really fantastic mystery in The Killing Depths and it was such a pleasure to read and try to solve. The best way to really describe The Killing Depths is intense. The last half of the book especially was purely mind-blowing.

When the killer was finally revealed and I, as the reader, was able to reconcile the backstory with the character I had come to like, it was an emotional moment. The details of his final psychotic break and descent into ultimate madness were so superbly written I felt like I was able to see the events unfolding before me. I had to keep reading, and reading, and reading, and reading. The final psychosis was written with such power and fervor it is nearly impossible to resist being consumed by the story.
The Killing Depths is a deadly game of hide-and-seek between a misogynistic killer, a co-ed crew of submariners, and a NCIS agent determined to solve the case. This was such a powerful and emotionally draining psychological thriller. I highly recommend that you look it up and add it to your must-read list.

While this is fiction, it could very well be non-fiction one day, and the premise of the novel actually does happen in real life. The US Navy allows for the first co-ed male and female submarine on which a female enlisted member of the team is found hanged. The captain and crew write it off as a supposed suicide. Meanwhile NCIS says, "yeah, um No", and sends its own personnel to investigate. While dealing with former I'm actually giving this 3. While dealing with former teammates and past career embarrassments, more female officers begin dying off.
Females who are all described as 'curvy' or voluptuous that will turn to fat with age. Wait a second Why would you want to get rid of that??
Oh because men need a place without women, where they can relax, make derogatory jokes and scratch themselves because as we all know, life turned to hell when women started voting and leaving the kitchen Actually, that's exactly how the killer thinks. It isn't long before his "mommy complex" is revealed and if you investigate the majority of serial killers, you'll find something along these lines. Men can cheat and it's OK. Women cheat, and we're worthless whores OK, moving on While the aforementioned material was difficult to read I deal with assholes in life everyday, so it's not something I really care to read unless there's a woman who puts a guy in his place , I will say that the characters are interesting.
There are twists, subplots and relationships among friends that say a lot about the camaraderie of the Navy. Having been a Navy kid myself I was familiar enough with the terms to follow, but I felt like the enemy ship was almost a side issue. It would have been nice to read more on the fight between the Encinitas and Crescent Moon. Feb 22, Gregory Lamb rated it liked it. Explosive Suspense! This story could have easily been Five Stars and could very well become a best seller in it's genre.
At my request, the author sent me a review copy and I discovered later that it was an early version, explaining the copy edits that held me up from time to time. Regardless, this story is packed with action right from the first paragraph. Martin Roy Hill is a master of Suspense! Tom Clancy, you'd better watch out, because Hill combined contemporary world events, social issues, Explosive Suspense!
Tom Clancy, you'd better watch out, because Hill combined contemporary world events, social issues, and the latest gender roll issues with classic submarine drama and weaved us a yarn that readers just can't put down.

Hill's main character Linus Schag is dropped from a helicopter to the deck of a Los Angeles Class attack sub. His mission is to unravel a mysterious suicide, only to find out later he is the underdog aboard a boat that doesn't want him around; that is until the suicide investigation evolved into a homicide investigation. The unknown suspect is possibly a serial killer and he's destined to kill again. Hill had me hanging by my fingernails thinking I knew who'd done it and had me questioning the why and how all the way to the end. The climax was a nail biter and Hill put the reader right in the middle of the suspense.
I'm glad I could read this story while high and dry because sometimes I felt like I was three fathoms down. Even if there were a few typo errors, I would look forward to the release of Hill's next novel and pay full price for it. Apr 09, William Stuart rated it really liked it. As some of you may know, I am a former submarine sailor and like to read novels about the Silent Service.
The boat and yes, a submarine is called a boat , is the first fast attack submarine to be coed. A NCIS agent has been airlifted to the boat to investigate the murder of one of the female crewmembers - originally thought to have hung herself. To add to the intrigue and suspense, the Encinitas is on a mission to stop a Chinese sub - recently sold to Iran - from ever reaching the Middle Eastern country. While trying to find the Iranian submarine, more murders occur aboard the boat and everyone is a suspect.
The investigator, Linus Schag, has a history with both the commanding officer and the executive officer, so tensions run high among them. In the escalating silent underwater search for the Iranian boat, and the efforts to stop a serial killer before he strikes again, the author weaves a suspenseful tale, and one that I enjoyed reading.
To be sure, there were some inaccuracies that submarine veterans will notice, and the idea of a serial killer stalking the crew of a submarine was a stretch. The ultimate battle between the subs was a bit contrived, but overall I liked the book and the story. Bravo Zulu Mr. My rating: 4 stars!!

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review. Jan 07, Liam Saville rated it it was amazing. Martin Roy Hill had me captivated from the very beginning of this modern locked room mystery and compelling naval thriller. In the tradition of the best locked room mysteries, the bodies of dead sailors continue to stack up in almost impossible circumstances, as the battle for life and death with the Iranian sub unfolds. The Killing Depths is undoubtedly one of the most authentic dual plot thrillers written in recent years, and readers could easily be mistaken for thinking they were reading a book from the likes of Tom Clancy.
I thoroughly enjoyed every page of this novel and highly recommend it; The Killing Depths has best seller written all over it. Dec 14, Linda rated it really liked it. I liked reading this book. The story line was clear and concise. Mechanics were good. One or two edit errors.
