Annotation:
Deep below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, the prehistoric predecessor of today's great white shark still thrives: the Megalodon, a 60-foot, 20-ton monster. Professor Jonas Taylor is the only man to have survived an encounter with the beast, and the only person adamant that the Meg is still in existence. But when several deep sea probes are disabled in the area where Taylor claims to have seen the Meg, he is called in to investigate. Now Taylor must face his second encounter with the beast--and only hope and quick wits will keep him alive.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"...hellishly riveting...." 04/15/1997

Midwest Book 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." June 1997
