TRAPPED UNDER THE SEA One Engineering Marvel, Five Men, and a Disaster Ten Miles Into the Darkness

by | Read by David H. Lawrence XVII

Contemporary Culture • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

David Lawrence’s deep, rich voice provides a smooth backdrop to this riveting story of death inside a wastewater treatment tunnel buried deep under Boston Harbor in 1999. He handles the details of the massive construction project designed to clean up what was then called the dirtiest harbor in America as well as the backstories of the deep-sea divers who are central to the story. Lawrence’s measured pacing helps the listener grasp the technical descriptions of both the project and the divers’ sophisticated equipment. But the same pacing drags during other parts of the narration. Rich in human emotion, tragedy, and courtroom drama, this cautionary tale and tribute unveils the steps that led to the deaths of divers and the fallout for those in charge.
