"Far below the South China Sea lies an underwater mountain range with canyons deep enoughto hide the Himalayas, deeper than man or machine has ever explored. Throughout the centuries, countless vessels have vanished into these waters without a trace. Their disappearance has remained a mystery....."

Treat Williams (the guy that used to have HAIR!) and his crew (KJ 0'Connor - of "Sentinel" fame, and Djimon Hounsou) are the good guys even if they sometimes get involved in some shady business. They are hired by a group of people to take them out to the middle of nowhere in the South China Sea in their boat.
   It turns out these people are terrirists planning to hijack The Argonautica, "the greatest, most luxuarious pleasure ship ever built" (sort of makes You think of that other ship - doesn't it?), full of the worlds richest people on her maiden voyage.

On The Argonautica somebody deliberately disables the main computer which runs about everything on the ship including navigation and communications systems. She is virtually helpless when something suddenly approaches from beneath at a tremendous speed.

When Finnegan and the terrorists reach The Argonautica something isn't quite right. The ship appears to be deserted and the place is drenched in blood....

I liked this one even if I'm not to sure about the end...
