Steve Alten is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Meg. A native of Philadelphia, he now lives in South Florida with his wife and children.From AudioFile:
THE TRENCH is pure formula. A Godzilla with a dorsal fin is menacing the North Pacific looking for its next meal. The hero is out to save humanity from this terror. And an evil scientist is holding a damsel in distress captive under seven miles of ocean. If reader Bruce Reizen were at the very top of his game, he could do little to improve THE TRENCH.
