Publisher's Summary

A series of violent shark attacks off the shores of northern California draw the attention of pessimistic Detective Luke Jansen. Despite reports of shark sightings by witnesses, the injuries appear to be more reminiscent of a chainsaw-wielding maniac rather than shark bites.

Things get stranger when marine biologist Elise Sheldon encounters the creature. Exhausted and traumatized, she is quickly dismissed, after she makes the claim that the beast is a Helicoprion. Thought to be extinct, the creature wields a spiraling set of teeth that can dice anything caught in its path. Unable to convince anyone of its existence, Elise turns to Detective Jansen for assistance.

With little help from the police department, Luke and Elise form an unlikely alliance to uncover the truth. Their investigation puts them face-to-face with a violent man-eating shark, and the terrifying reason for its existence.

Like Meg…with Mercs!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lots of action set pieces and gore galore. I really connected with the two main characters by the end. Luke was assholishly awesome. The story though, was some straight Bond villain type stuff. A little cheesy, but it worked in the end.

This is awesome!

This is a great book. Well written and developed. You become invested in the characters very early on and it doesn't stop. Also, Louis B. Jack is one of the best narrators ever. I loved this audible book and I think every one she give it a listen.

REALLY GOOD!

Very pleasantly surprised. Great story, great characters, great gore, and awesome narrator. Had a twist I didn't see coming to add more guts to the story.

Very good

I actually liked it. It was a highly unrealistic story elaborated into a very good storyline. Good for taking your mind off of everyday troubles...

Great book, poor narration

A great book let down by mediocre narration and an inability to do a British accent. For a character who's meant to be from South London, they sounded more Australian and the rest of the accents aren't much better.

Don't let that put you off, it's another superb book by Mr Cole.

Not bad

Enjoyable story but awful attempt at different accents by the narrator. I also found his voice irritating.

Gripping

l liked this, narration was good (apart from the attempt at an English accent). Sloppy science though, the author should know basic stuff like antibiotics are no good against a virus and that viruses do not lurk in DNA. Other than that, it's an enjoyable bit of escapism
