New Review of Fatal Depth from MBR
It’s an extremely positive review from Midwest Book Review. Terms like tense, powerful, exquisite, and unpredictable fill this write up:
I haven’t been able to do in-person signings due to Covid restrictions in Ontario, but we’ve now moved into reopening retail, and recently I was able to visit some stores and sign copies of my brand new Sci-Fi / TechnoThriller Fatal Depth, just out from Fitzhenry & Whiteside, Ltd.
Last Saturday evening, I watched via Zoom as The Savage Deeps achieved First in Category in the 2020 CYGNUS Awards. I want to express my gratitude to the judges, organizers, my readers, fans, family, and friends.
A wonderful review of Fatal Depth has just appeared at genre website SFcrowsnest. From the review:

Thanks to everyone who participated in my New Year’s contest. It was the biggest one yet, and I decided to award twenty-five prize packs to people who entered.
“While the futuristic vision of the resources-challenged world is one thing, the action and adventure is another. Fans of submarine movies and fiction will enjoy the highly atmospheric tension and sheer claustrophobia of operating at great depths in what are essentially ocean-going spaceships.”
