More About the Author
From his well-regarded first novel, Carve the Sky, an interplanetary espionage novel set in a culturally complex 25th century, through the obscenely articulate dolphins with military modifications of a Deeper Sea, the hardboiled post-cyberpunk of Nimbus, the subterranean Martian repression of River of Dust, and the perverse space opera of Deepdrive, he has come to Brain Thief, a contemporary high-tech thriller with a class clown attitude.

But the real focus of this book is the main character's spiritual journey, as he is gradually transformed by guilt and self-punishment. There is much meditation on the nature of god (in the generic sense) and human responsibility toward the divine. Though it's been a few years since I read Dostoyevski's Crime and Punishment, I think A Deeper Sea has much the same agenda. It's probably not a coincidence that the main character is a Russian, of the gloomy and philosophical variety.
Those who enjoy a strong character study and the pleasures of philosophy will find this unusual book a rewarding read.
