Shadow Divers

The True Adventure of Two Americans Who Risked Everything to Solve One of the Last Mysteries of World War II 
By Robert Kurson, narrated by Michael Prichard

I enjoyed this book immensely.  It has everything: adventure, danger, science, history, emotion, and romance.  (Only a little romance, though.)  You can always tell you’re reading a really well-written book when your mind starts to dabble in imitation: I could be a wreck diver, my brain tells me.   Then I read about how one of them dies, and I know I couldn’t be a deep wreck diver.  Yikes.

The book tells how a group of divers discovered a sunken U-boat off the New Jersey coast.  They spend years diving the wreck and searching for artifacts and clues as to its identity.  In the process, they rewrite a few bits of history as well.
