Manca più di una tessera consistent with completare il mosaico: l’affondamento è stato denunciato alle autorità solo ventiquattr’ore dopo l’accaduto e nessuno degli uomini a bordo, sei membri dell’equipaggio e un solo passeggero tutti prontamente messi in salvo, racconta los angeles stessa versione dei fatti. l. a. traccia più concreta according to risalire alla verità sembra passare proprio in keeping with quell’unico passeggero, l’affascinante e misteriosa Monica supply. E mentre dalle profondità del mare riaffiora un tesoro dal valore inestimabile, James si trova ben presto a lottare consistent with los angeles sua stessa vita, oltre che consistent with svelare un segreto che affonda le sue radici nel passato, nei torbidi giorni dell’armistizio italiano durante l. a. seconda guerra mondiale. Il silenzio degli abissi è uno dei romanzi, inediti in Italia, che Michael Crichton scrisse sotto pseudonimo mentre studiava Medicina all’università di Harvard. Anni dopo, ha deciso di ridare vita a quelle storie e di ripubblicarle, con enorme successo. L’ambientazione mozzafiato, l’irresistibile fascino da classico secret che gli ha fruttato una nomination agli Edgar Awards, oltre che l. a. possibilità di scoprire un Crichton finora sconosciuto, fanno di Il silenzio degli abissi un vera e propria lettura obbligata in step with gli appassionati del genere.
