Enjoy a preview of The Deep Zone here!
|James M. Tabor has enjoyed tremendous success with his previous works of non-fiction, including Forever on the Mountain: The Truth Behind One of Mountaineering's Most Controversial and Mysterious Disasters and Blind Descent: The Quest to Discover the Deepest Place on Earth. Now he joins us with his first offering of fiction, a thriller drawing deeply on his knowledge of earth science, spelunking and caves.

--Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of "The Columbus Affair."
