9780312965730: Peter Benchley's Creature

At a small marine institute off the coast of Connecticut, only marine biologist Simon Chase realizes that a sixteen-foot pregnant Great White is feeding in the area. But even Simon doesn't know that a far deadlier creature is about to come out of the deep and threaten everything he cares for. A creature whose malevolence is unthinkable. Whose need to feed is insatiable. And whose relentless hunt for prey is unstoppable.

Nearly twenty-five years after his huge bestseller Jaws, the master of the deep has done it again, letting loose a chilling new predator that only he could create. Drawing on his singular knowledge of the sea, science, and history, Peter Benchley masterfully spins a suspense-filled novel that hits you on a primal level, makes your heart pound, and leaves your blood running cold.

About the Author:

After graduating from Harvard, Peter Benchley worked as a reporter for The Washington Post, then as an editor at Newsweek and a speechwriter in the White House. His novel Jaws was published in 1974, followed by The Deep (1976), The Island (1979), The Girl of the Sea of Cortez (1982), Q Clearance (1986), Rummies (1989) and Beast (1991). He has written screenplays for three of his novels, and his articles and essays have appeared in such publications as National Geographic and The New York Times. In addition, he has written, narrated and appeared in more than a dozen television documentaries.

From AudioFile:

White Shark is a genetically engineered seven-foot humanoid made by the Third Reich as a pure killer. It was programmed to roam the oceans to kill and spread fear. However, it lay dormant for fifty years, trapped within a sunken German U-boat at the close of WWII, until raised by unsuspecting oceanographers in the late '90's. In the tradition of Jaws, narrator Collins portrays the "monster" with menace and a maniacal lack of conscience. This suspenseful, fast-paced chiller is depicted with danger, horror and bravado, from Mengele-style ex-periments to innocent victims and lots of action.
