What price would you pay for adventure and knowledge?

Chris and Chrissy Rouse, an experienced father and son suba diving team, hoped to achieve widespread recognition for their outstanding but controversial diving skills. Obsessed and ambitious, they sought to discover the secrets of a mysterious, undocumented World War II German U-boat that lay under 230 feet of water.

They paid the ultimate price in their quest for fame.

This gripping narrative recounts the Rouses' growing lust for what many consider the worlds most dangerous sport -- as well as for the cowboy culture of the deep diving community. Many friends wondered which would win out if it came down to a life or death diving situation: Chris's protective instincts, or Chrissy's desire to surpass his father's successes.

Author Bernie Chowdhury, an expert diver and a close friend of the Rouses', explores the thrill-seeking world of deep sea diving, including its legendary figures, most celebrated triumphs, and gruesome tragedies. By examining the diver's psychology through the complex father and son dynamic, Chowdhury illuminates the extreme sport diver's push toward and sometimes beyond the limits of human endurance.
