Award winning thriller writer David M. Salkin plunges you three miles beneath the waves in this Omnibus edition of his two Deep Black Sea novels, Deep Black Sea and Dark Tide Rising.

Deep Black Sea

With a crew of seven, the Challenger sea-lab submerges three miles below the waves for a one-year mission to study the hidden world of the deep black sea. When they bring aboard a bacteria that enables certain animals to survive in the seven hundred degrees poisonous water of the black smoker, a researcher on board purposefully infects a member of the crew in an attempt to harness the power of the bacteria. A botched experiment quickly becomes a desperate battle for survival.

Dark Tide Rising

After living through the terrifying disaster that killed half the crew of the research vessel Challenger, three survivors think they have escaped the nightmare. Instead, creatures have risen from the depths—and it appears the crew’s horrifying experience in the deep black sea was only the beginning.
