    I found I didn't care what happened. The characters had no depth and the plot was far-fetched. A treasure hidden in the middle of the ocean by a submarine with a virus loose on board? Clues hidden on plates in the walls of the sub? A scientist dismantelling the submarine at the dock for a museum and finding the code to be in an obscure language only a handful of people know? ... it went on like this, getting more and more difficult to believe. A waste of time.
