Synopses & Reviews
It was the apex predator of all time, the most fearsome creature that ever lived -- a 70-foot, 70,000 pound Great White shark. Hundreds of 7-inch serrated teeth filled jaws that could swallow an elephant whole. It could sense its prey miles away, inhaling its scent as it registered the beat of its fluttering heart, and if you ever came close enough to see the monster...it was already too late.
Eighteen years have passed since Jonas Taylor last crossed paths with carcharodon Megalodon. Now a middle-aged father of two, he is overwhelmed by mountains of bills and the daily strife of raising a family. But life is about to change. A Hollywood television producer wants Jonas to join his new survival series: Daredevils. For the next six weeks, two teams of crazy daredevils on a South Pacific Ocean voyage will try to outperform one another in front of the cameras. Jonas needs the money, and the job of doing the color commentary seems easy enough. But behind the scenes, someone else is pulling the strings. And before it's over, Jonas will again come face to face with the most dangerous creatures ever to stalk the Earth.
"An exuberant, potboiling action thriller. The shark attack scenes . . . are numerous and exciting. Fans should devour it." (Publishers Weekly, Sep 28 2004 )
In this sequel to the "New York Times" bestselling "MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror," 18 years have passed since Jonas Taylor last faced the deadly Great White. Now offered a job with a new TV survival series, Jonas will again face the most dangerous creature ever to stalk the Earth.
