White Shark by Peter Benchley
A quiet Long Island fishing community is suddenly struck with terror when an amphibious beast created by a mad Nazi scientist is unleashed on the town. Dr. Simon Chase, a struggling man who leaves his wife and child to finish school at a Marine Biology science institute sees his son, Max for the first time in twelve years. A crew tracking a pregnant Great White spot a porpoise with a claw gash in its tail and see massive kills of sea life; when they then observe the same claw marks on Jaws herself, Chase knows that there must be something big out there to attack a great white. Dr. Amanda Macy, who studies whales using sea lions with strapped-on video cameras, allows herself to actually see the creature firsthand. Macy’s camera gets a shot of a clawed hand attacking a fish. After additional horrific and bloody encounters at sea, the beast comes ashore, endangering the entire town. Now it’s up to Chase to try and stop the creature before it kills off the entire town, and eventually move on…

The Featured Book of Day are simple posts where I share the books in my library. Rather then doing yet another “book shelf” tour, I thought a book FEATURE would be more fun! Be sure to join in the fun on YouTube! BotD videos that receive at least 50 thumbs up, will get a revisit video with either a review or an excerpt. I will re-purchase the highest THUMBS UP video (over 50 thumbs) each month, and it becomes the giveaway book the following month!
Please note that my posts contain affiliate links. What that means is, every time you purchase a product through one of my links, your cost will be the same but I will receive a small commission. I use this money to keep the site going, so your support is greatly appreciated!
