To prove that the massive symbionts, named Leviathans, that inhabit Jupiter's atmosphere possess intelligence, physicist Grant Archer readies a deep-pressure manned probe for immersion in the giant planet's deadly cloud cover. Equally anxious to thwart his attempt, millionaire Katherine Westfall seeks to outmaneuver Archer in her bid for the top spot in the International Astronautical Authority (IAA) by any means possible--including murder.

Bova treats the heroine as infantile and overly sexualized and the villain as maleficent and ...overly sexualized. All characters seemed fairly one-dimesional. He could have shaved the useless contrived romances and not delayed the more exciting sci-fi plots. As with almost all fiction, this is full of liberal ideation. Great read for an 11 year old boy.

An easy read for sure. HIs style is consistent through the series and makes for a book you can't put down.
