Watching Surface this evening brought back an odd memory from when I was young:

Does anyone remember the name of science fiction book (for teens or tweens) that starts with a tsunami smashing into the East Coast, sheering off a cliff face and exposing a diamond statue found by some teenagers who were filming the wave? The discovery leads them to find a tomb. The tomb winds up being a stasis chamber which holds what is basically a creature from the black lagoon kind of biped. There’s also a machine for traveling through solid earth.

Any bells?

Anyone? Heinlein? Asimov? Bueller?
