Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743284542, Hardcover)Widely and enthusiastically acclaimed, The Descent marked the debut of a powerful imagination and earned Jeff Long comparisons to Stephen King. Now, after three more suspenseful blockbusters, he returns to the captivating creatures he conjured in that first incredible novel, unleashing a story that will hook his fans and never let go. In The Descent, we discovered a world beneath our feet - a tubular nightmare of tunnels and subterranean rivers and seas inhabited by a savage race of hominids. Our search was to locate their leader, the so-called historical Satan. In Deeper, mankind once again confronts its cruel subterranean relatives, and we must descend even further. Searching for the hadal god, we reach down to our very genesis. With terrorism boiling up from the depths, we find ourselves drawn into a clash of civilizations - one primal, one modern - that forces us to confront our demons all over again. Mesmerizing, concussive, this darkly brilliant work of imagination galvanizes Jeff Long's reputation as a prodigious talent.

"A decade has passed since doomed explorers unveiled a nightmare of tunnels and rivers honeycombing the earth's depths. After millennia of suffering terror and predation, humanity's armies descended to destroy the ancient hordes. Deep beneath the Pacific Ocean, a doomed science expedition killed the subterranean's fabled leader, and suddenly it seemed that evil was dead and all was right with the world again." "Now Deeper arrives to explode that complacency and plunge us back into the sunless abyss. Hell boils up through America's subways and basements to take its revenge and steal our children. Against the backdrop of a looming war with China, a crusade of volunteers races to find the vestiges of a lost race. But a lone explorer, the linguist Ali von Schade, learns that a far greater menace lies in the unexplored heart of the planet. The real Satan can't be killed, and he has been waiting since the beginning of time to gain his freedom. Man and his pitiless enemies are mere pawns in the greatest escape ever devised."--BOOK JACKET.
