3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting scientific concepts, 12 Jan. 2009
This review is from: The Trudeau Vector (Paperback)
Trudeau is an advanced Canadian research station situated deep in the Arctic Circle, where an international community of scientists collaborate in harmony. But tradegy strikes, and 4 scientists are killed by an unknown factor. Jessie, a brilliant, unconventional, American epidemiologist is requested to visit the station to determine the cause of these mysterious deaths.

Deep in the depths of the polar oceans, an experienced, old submariner is asked to lead a Russian team to investigate the disappearance of a Russian submarine. As the book unfolds, their missions converge as they race to solve the scientific and political mysteries that surround them.

I both liked and disliked this book. Jurjevics' grasp of scientific and engineering concepts is impressive, resulting in a book that is rich in information. Initially, the plots builds well, leaving the reader with a nicely tense sense of foreboding. Unfortunately, the book fails to maintain its excellent start and the plot descends into borderline silliness. Still though, it's well worth a read for the interesting scientific concepts raised by the author.
