Product Description

Product Description

Kat Delaney is a world class caver and microbiologist. While investigating one of the deepest caves on Earth, she becomes trapped, along with her team of fellow cavers and scientists. Far below the ruins of a Mayan city, they struggle to escape this mysterious cave, reportedly cursed and haunted by the Lords of Death. Kat’s husband, Mark, a doctor and pioneer of nanotechnology with a deep-rooted fear of caves, must try to rescue her. He enlists the help of a Mayan guide, who turns out to have revolutionary ambitions.

Kat must keep her unravelling team together when they discover that something as threatening as the Lords of Death lurks within the cave. Mark must choose between trusting a guide who is patently untrustworthy, or leaving Kat to die. Will they escape? Will science be the solution? Or will it simply affirm their sentence as the Lords of Death win once again?

I enjoyed reading Ice Tomb by Deborah Jackson so when I seen she wrote another novel titled “Sinkhole”, I decided to read it. This writer has really developed her style. I usually read chapter to chapter but the drama and suspense in this book kept me reading on into the start of the next chapter. I found the sub plots of the two groups kept me intrigued and you knew they were heading to a huge climax when the two collided. Jackson has really out done herself with this book. I would highly recommend it to readers who like suspenseful thrillers.

HASH(0x9a1cc9ec) out of 5 stars Loved it!! Jan. 7 2013
By Monie Garcia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Sinkhole is a book that I can easily see turned into a movie. It has action, suspense, drama and real characters. Each one of the characters in the story had their own reasons for putting themselves in danger by exploring the caves. Their backstories are written with enough detail that you become engaged with them, even the "bad guys", but not so much as to go over-the-top.

The plot is very well done but I do have to say that the reason Mark goes after Kat is just a little to far fetched. That is the only reason why I didn't give the book 5 stars. It seems to me that Mark could have found someone to search for Kat if he would have kept looking but he took it upon himself to search for her even though he is deathly afraid of caves. It just seems to me that with his money and resources it would have been easy to send a search team in.

Overall I enjoyed Sinkhole as much as Ice Tomb and look forward to reading more by Jackson. I recommend this one for anyone who loves suspense thrillers with a sprinkling of sci-fi.

HASH(0x99b2cfcc) out of 5 stars An exciting pleasure Jan. 14 2013

I love this author. Ice Tomb was good; this was even better. It's a thriller with lots of drama and action, with just enough science fiction to allow for surprises. The characters are interesting and you gradually learn what makes them tick; but the thriller tension comes from man vs nature challenges as well as personalities. I give credit to an author who keeps me guessing. Although some things were predictable, I often had to change my expectations.

One of the things I appreciate about Ms. Jackson's books is that any bad language is minimal and so far in what I've read there is romance without graffic sex. Hooray!

I feel I must mention that there is apparently another author named Deborah Jackson, with a different middle initial. After readng Ice Tomb and being impressed, I downloaded a $.99 young adult book and found it to be a very frustrating waste of time. It felt so good to get back to this good writer.

I feel like this was a remake. I kept knowing what was going to happen. Otherwise, it held my attention but I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone.
HASH(0x9b8831a4) out of 5 stars I struggled with details from a technical perspective. Oct. 28 2015

I feel my view is skewed, so take this all with a grain of salt please. If you know nothing of caving or scuba diving, this may interest you, but for me it was just so full of holes that I struggle. I am still reading, but probably 3/4 of the way done now. I won't give up, anyone who takes the time to put forth the work and I purchase it, deserves a thorough read through. That's my opinion, and I love reading unknown authors. But from a caving point of view, and knowing a great deal about the worlds deepest caves (one of them actually in Mexico), there is just no way to handle that much rope, plus personal gear, PLUS a bulky rebreather in this small of groups. When the worlds deepest caves are explored it takes teams of people just to get rigging set up; to get base camps set; to make that push to get just a few people to the 'end of the line'. That detail was difficult for me. Also, with concern to the diving, I feel cave diving should have also been researched more. Cave diving is extremely dangerous, not to mention the training that goes into both it AND rebreather training. I just felt like the characters had no clue training wise, and simply slung very complex pieces of equipment onto their backs, and even sort of tossed them around a bit. Not something that would be done in real life.

From simply a story point of view, I have to agree with others that the fighting and drama seemed so forced; child like even. You don't make an epic trip underground like this with all this in fighting. I found all the fighting especially between Jorge and Mark to be annoying actually.

But, with that said, if you have no clue to caving and what it takes technically, nor diving as well, you may find this story quite good. And my hats off to Deborah for writing a novel (I understand you have written a few) and that is quite an undertaking in and of itself. I mean none of this harshly, only constructive criticism. You've gotten great reviews from others, and you will always have you're negative critics, so again, with a grain of salt. Still, my hats off to you. Keep living your dreams and not allowing anyone's opinions to alter them.

I love novels that are plausible but have enough material that allows your imagination to fly. This was one of those novels with really good character development and plot twists that kept me reading with enthusiasm
