action and diving or underwater themed books

Folks:
I need some recommendation. I just recently, over the holiday weekend watched Thunderball and When Eight Bells Toll, and I am interested in: war or spy thrillers that have underwater fights or take place underwater or on water. I am not familiar with genera or authors who specialize in this type of fiction.

Thanks.

I can't think of any spy/military, just thrillers like Benchley's Jaws or Alten's MEG.

Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt books often feature underwater adventure.

I recommend "Deep Storm" by Lincoln Child.

This is considered a sci-fi novel in that it revolves around the idea that the sunken city of Atlantis has been found, but there is also a good bit of military thriller / espionage mixed in with the mystery of what actually lies at the ocean floor.

Was getting ready to make that recommendation myself, also like to add that some of Cussler's other books do so also, the Kurt Austin adventures and occasionally the Oregon books involve diving in their adventures as well. Not a big fan of the Kurt Austin stuff, but I've enjoyed the Oregon files books I've read so far.

Thanks folks...will check them out. From my limited experience this is a hard to find genre of spy/military thrillers.

Deep Fathom by James Rollins-

"Ex-Navy SEAL Jack Kirkland surfaces from an aborted underwater salvage mission to find Earth burning. Solar flares have triggered a series of gargantuan natural disasters. Earth-quakes and hellfire rock the globe. Air Force One has vanished from the skies with America's president on board.


Now, with the United States on the narrow brink of a nuclear apocalypse, Kirkland must pilot his oceangoing exploration ship, Deep Fathom, on a desperate mission miles below the ocean's surface. There, devastating secrets await him--and a power an ancient civilization could not contain that has been cast out into modern day, where it will forever alter a world that's already racing toward its own destruction."
