Shadow Divers Shadow Divers: The True Adventure of Two Americans Who Risked Everything to Solve One of the Last Mysteries of World War II
by Robert Kurson

Janet Maslin, writing in The New York Times, says that "Kurson's new book features undersea thrills, a gripping mystery, incredible discoveries, true-blue friendship, life-or-death crises, and history unfolding before the reader's eyes. ... Written with great you-are-there intensity and dynamic verve." "It is one thing, wreck divers will tell you, to slither in near-total darkness through a shipwreck's twisted, broken mazes, each room a potential trap of swirling silt and collapsing structure," Mr. Kurson writes with typical brio. "It is another to do so without knowing that someone did it before you and lived." A U-boat discovered at 230 feet off of New Jersey in 1991 is the setting for this thrilling adventure, where divers on compressed air fight narcosis, ripping currents, bad visibility - and themselves. Perhaps the best dive adventure ever, this book is so compelling that Hollywood has already purchased the filming rights for $1,000,000.

Illustrated/Hardcover. 375 pages, Amazon.com price: $17.79.
