Deep below Manhattan, tunnel engineer Josh Reed leads his team as they excavate the East Side Access extending New York’s railway service. But sparks fly as the drill hits an unusual crystalline material—one Josh has never seen before. They push on and Josh discovers something even more unexpected . . . a vast room, empty and lifeless.
Or so it seems.
When Josh finds out that the CIA are now looking for him, and that his co-workers have gone missing, he turns to his best friend and boss Lionel Parker for help. Together they unravel the mystery of the room, what’s inside it, and why the CIA are so desperate to keep them silent.
It’s nothing they could ever have expected.
New York Deep was written by the author of the hit novel Vessel. Also available from the author:
Amazon Top Review – “This book does an excellent job of pulling you in from the very beginning. Josh’s character is instantly likeable and relatable – a real blue collar hero type. I really enjoyed watching the relationship between Josh and his ex-wife and between Josh and Lionel. Where some authors struggle to create believable characters and back stories, Morgan has given us a family of characters that truly feel like they are real in the way that they relate to each other.
Once Morgan is finished setting up the ground work for the story, it really takes off. Each situation builds and builds so that once you reach the end of the book, you’ve got a good tangle of potential endings. I didn’t love everything about the way that Morgan decided to conclude his story, although a semi-happy ending is better than no happy ending at all I guess.
All in all, this is a solid little science fiction book with plenty of action, good characters, and an ending that closes the book out without a cliff hanger (which I appreciate). This book would probably be a great entry point for someone who maybe wouldn’t be a typical science fiction fan, since it takes place here on Earth in present time and mixes lots of action and true-to-life characters with the science fiction elements. I think this story would particularly appeal to people who enjoy the imagination and adventure in Michael Crichton’s writings but struggle with the sometimes overly detailed science fiction elements of his books.
Certainly a good book. I’ll read Andrew Morgan again without question.”
