FATAL DIVE Solving the World War II Mystery of the USS Grunion

by | Read by Robertson Dean

History • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

In July of 1942, the submarine GRUNION mysteriously disappeared from the Aleutian Islands near Alaska, taking the lives of its 70 crew members. Three sons of one of those victims, Jim Abele, led the effort to find the sub and solve the mystery of what happened. This book reveals the shocking answer and the reasons for the Navy cover-up. Robertson Dean does his usual masterful job, using his big, deep, unique voice to tell the story with conviction and aplomb. He keeps us on the edge of our seats with pacing that keeps the story moving and every word receiving its due. What’s missing is emotional depth and empathy. Dean has a wonderful voice, but a story such as this requires a slightly gentler touch. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
