I read this in February 2001.

Patricia Beenan lives in New Galveston, one of the new floating cities that developed following the "Deluge", when the sea-level rose by a hundred feet. Technology has become a little more environmentally friendly, but people haven't. She finds something very unpleasant under the water, and some very unpleasant people try to find her.

It's a simple but exciting thriller and a good read. I enjoyed the very convincing underwater descriptions and am now quietly confident that I could handle a mini-submarine.

Don't forget to read Steven Gould's "Wildside" - that was great fun.

Loaded on the 16th February 2001.
