Synopsis:

On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean's deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with terror. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor remains haunted years later by what he saw. Written off as a crackpot, he insists that the prehistoric shark known as Carcharodon megalodon still swims the deep underwater chasms.Only an urgent call for help from one of his oldest friends can persuade him to return to those deadly waters. Now Taylor will relive his darkest nightmare, only to find that what he saw before was only the beginning. For what lies deep beneath the waves is a horror that could turn the tides blood-red until the end of time....


Review:

"...hellishly riveting...."

Kirkus, 04/15/1997

Review:

"The Pacific Ocean holds many secrets deep inside its trenches. In one particularly isolated location seven miles beneath the surface lies an area that the sun never reaches, but life thrives there unbeknownst to mankind. Nearby, paleontologist Jonas Taylor helps a friend recover damaged detection devices lying on the ocean floor. Suddenly, out of nowhere, they are attacked by a Cararodon Megalodon, a twenty ton ancestor of the great white shark. Meg has surfaced, seeking food. Taylor manages to survive and works with other scientists trying to capture the deadly creature, thought dead for at least 100 million years. However, this is the nineties, an age of camcorders and what not, where eager tourists and reporters flock to the sighting locale, making the work even more dangerous and almost impossible. It appears that, with all these fools on the scene, Meg is going to have a lot of human food before she is through with her trip to the surface. 'Meg' is an exciting novel that will make an interesting movie, but is no JAWS. Still, Steve Alten writes an exciting debut tale that features a strong female protagonist (Meg) and her dedicated male opponent (Taylor) in a life and death struggle. The novel is good, but suggest readers wait for the movie for some visual excitement."
