Scuba Diving Mysteries
« on: September 27, 2011, 04:31:19 pm »
A while ago, someone here was asking about mysteries involving scuba diving... I saw this evening that two of Kathy Brandt's Underwater Series are on the Kindle now, for good prices:





Astonishingly, these are the first two of the four books published, instead of being published in random order. I liked these a lot and will probably buy the ebooks even though I have the paperbacks.

    I mentioned this on the Indie books thread, but since it directly fits the topic I'll repeat:

    "The Devil's Deep" by Michael Wallace has some harrowing scuba diving scenes. A great read.

    $0.99

    Is it a mystery?

    A true story, but told like a spellbinding mystery, is Shadow Divers by Robert Kurson.  Kurson's stories grip you like fiction.

    Nonfiction rather than a mystery, but this book has always intrigued me.  I never get around to buying and reading it though!

    Shadow Divers was riveting.

    Another in a similar vein is Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea.
