For David Concannon, the defending attorney in this lawsuit, it was one of the craziest, wild cases he's ever been involved in. "The plaintiffs' attorney sued everyone he could possibly think of, and allege everything he could think of," he says. "It was a spray-and-pray, shotgun-style defense."

My fellow divers, I can't imagine that anyone who has had a chance to slip below the surface and marvel at the life there won't find this a fascinating read. James Nestor, a fine journalist (he has written for Outside, Men's Journal and the New York Times) with a keen eye, has produced the best underwaterfocused book since Shadow Divers a decade ago. It's a fine adventure and a thrilling ride all the way from the surface down to 28,000 feet, and back.
In 1999, hundreds of feet under the ocean, five divers traveled to the end of the new Boston sewer tunnel - devoid of light and air - to complete the construction; one didn't return and another was sentenced to a life of trauma-induced drug addiction and prison. It was a "dry penetration," but commercial divers were selected for the job because they were trained in mixed gas technology and could handle construction in dark and dangerous circumstances. Neil Swidey, a staff writer for the Boston Globe, tells the compelling tale of the harrowing and deadly task, against the backdrop of bravery, corporate greed, political infighting and construction incompetence. A great book for mixed gas divers.
