About the Author
As a maritime historian and shipwreck expert, Taylor's real-life adventures parallel those of his fictional counterparts. In addition to personally setting a deep-ocean depth record, his archival field research contributed to the discovery of some of the most incredible treasure shipwrecks in history, including a 110-ton trove of sunken World War II silver. He is a member of the famous Explorers Club; a former researcher for Odyssey Marine Exploration, a treasure-hunting company whose activities were featured on the Discovery Channel television show "Treasure Quest" as well as a number of specials. He is also the Research Director for Endurance Exploration Group, which is expecting a substantial amount of media attention on their major projects this year; and also has the distinction of being a part of the first Titanic expedition to be accompanied by a marine archaeologist.

Standout elements of the novel:
-- The North Korean set pieces were exotic/horrifying in a "disaster tourism" sort of way.
-- Vitaly steals every scene he's in. Everything he says is genuinely hilarious and charismatic... think Firefly's Walsh
-- Love the new character Sun-Hi as a free spirit that still survives and laughs after all the horrible things that life throws at her
-- New character Freya is really a magnificant standout character too, sort of a Batman/Punisher to Jonah's Superman/Captain America. She's strong enough to have her own spin-off. She's just so fresh and now and stereotype-breaking.
-- The action scenes are tightly choreographed. At the beginning, I'm always like "well, they're so f*****, they can't get out of this" and then somehow the characters manage to credibly get to a resolution without blatant deus ex machina.
-- No spoilers, but the sci-fi element of Meisekimu is incredibly cool, I haven't seen this particular idea executed before in standard sci-fi.
