“You know a book has you when you avoid looking at its photo display or final pages for fear of spoiling its surprises. Robert Kurson has written a genre-mixing sprint of a narrative, an adventure story that is also a genuine historical mystery.”

“Kurson breathes life into Shadow Divers with consummate skill. His research is meticulous but he wears it lightly, his characters are skillfully drawn, and the narrative is so well paced and constructed that it develops a hypnotic, almost suffocating tension… But it is far more than mere adventure; this is also a haunting, painful story of obsession and its attendant costs. For once, the comparisons with The Perfect Storm are not out of place; this is a memorable story, beautifully told.”

“Riveting…Kurson’s descriptions of some of these forays inside the sub were so harrowing that I frequently caught myself holding my breath…A great book.”

“I had really gotten into the book Shadow Divers by Robert Kurson right before we had recorded all of this. … It’s about a U-boat found off the coast of New Jersey that had been lost. It was a German U-boat, and these American divers became obsessed with it, and it was riveting. Everybody in my band read it, and we were super-obsessed.” – NEKO CASE
