Steven Gould's Blind Waves is one of those books that makes you hold
your breath a lot. This SF thriller takes place along what's left of
the Texas Gulf coast after melting Antarctic ice has drowned much of
the world. In New Galveston, a floating city, our plucky heroine
Patricia Beeman uses her submarine to do salvage and inspection work.
But when she stumbles upon a sunken ship full of freshly dead
immigrants, she gets tangled in a dangerous web of politics, hatred,
and corruption. Enter Commander Thomas Becket of the Immigration and
Naturalization Service (now an armed force bigger than the Navy).
Patricia and Thomas band together to beat the bad guys, and the
adventure that follows delivers on all counts. Plenty of tense
underwater action and zingy plot twists will keep thriller fans turning
pages, while snappy dialogue, a delightfully budding romance, and
homages to Shakespeare and Dorothy L. Sayers add literary flair.
