Publisher's Summary

Its appetite is ravenous. Its teeth scalpel-sharp. Its power unstoppable as it smashes the steel doors holding it in a Monterey, California, aquarium. The captive 20-ton Megalodon shark has tasted human blood, and it wants more.On the other side of the world, in the silent depths of the ocean, lies the Mariana Trench, where the Megalodon has spawned since the dawn of time. Paleo-biologist Jonas Taylor once dared to enter this perilous cavern. He alone faced the monster and cut its heart out, and he wears the painful scars of that deadly encounter.Now, as the body count rises and the horror of the Meg's attack grips the California coast, Jonas must begin the hunt again. But to do that means returning to the dark terror of the trench...where the Meg is waiting. Using himself as bait, Jonas will enter the ultimate battle - a fight to the death between man and beast in the darkest recesses of the ocean...and a fight for his sanity from the depths of his own tormented soul.

Very good!

The publishers summery doesn't do this book justice. By reading what the book was about I had my doubts. "Guy has run in with shark and later guy hunts shark" not to exciting. That wasn't the case at all. This book has a lot of extras that I never expected. Wonderful suspense and action. If you are on the fence go ahead and take a chance you won't be disapointed well worth my credit.

Good Story, High Body Count

A good listen, but not for the squeamish. Alten intercuts two stories, the hunt for the always hungry shark with a credible and interesting international conspiracy. The story jumps into the action from the beginning and never lets up. Alten is pretty good at making the reader care about the characters which heightens the suspense. But if you cringe at reading about what goes through people's minds as they look out at the world from inside a shark's mouth, this book is not for you.
