Reviews of "The Moonpool "

At the start of Deutermann's exciting third suspense novel to feature Cameron Richter, a retired cop who runs Hide and Seek Investigations, a PI firm staffed by other ex-cops (after Spider Mountain), one of Cam's operatives, Allie Gardner, falls ill in Wilmington, N.C., while doing some philandering-husband divorce work. Soon she's dead on the floor of a gas station bathroom, burned from the inside out from having ingested a pint of highly radioactive water. When Cam looks into Allie's death, he winds up being hired by Aristotle Quartermain, chief of security at Helios, the local nuclear power station. Aiding Cam are the book's two most appealing characters, his German shepherds, Frick and Frack. Deutermann imparts much interesting scientific information on such things as the titular moonpool, where exhausted nuclear fuel is stored. Just as interesting, and far more chilling, is the author's depiction of how the Department of Homeland Security operates and why you never, ever want to get on their bad side. Thriller fans will look forward to further entries in this fine series.
Publishers Weekly, 2008
The bestselling Deutermann demonstrates how good popular fiction can be. When a woman is found dead in a North Carolina gas station, an investigator discovers a connection to Helios, the nuclear power plant nearby--and to powerful forces with a terrifying agenda. Combining well-researched facts with creative fiction and interesting characters, Deutermann's story is compelling from start to finish. Narrator Mel Foster follows suit with a narration as dark and mysterious as it is strong. Without going over the top Foster creates a shadowy, brooding atmosphere. Further, he seems predestined to read a story such as this as his voice has a particular power that keeps the listener engaged. A truly fun listening experience!
