Primal WatersBook - 2004
Eighteen years after a Megalodon shark escapes the Tanaka Lagoon to return to the Mariana Trench, former adventurer Jonas Taylor is recruited to appear on a new survival series at sea, a job with unexpected deadly challenges.
New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten's Meg: Primal Waters continues his thrilling action adventure series--the basis for the feature film The Meg, starring Jason Statham as Jonas Taylor.
It was the apex predator of all time, the most fearsome creature that ever lived -- a 70-foot, 70,000 pound Great White shark. Hundreds of 7-inch serrated teeth filled jaws that could swallow an elephant whole. It could sense its prey miles away, inhaling its scent as it registered the beat of its fluttering heart, and if you ever came close enough to see the monster...it was already too late.
Eighteen years have passed since Jonas Taylor last crossed paths with carcharodon Megalodon. Now a middle-aged father of two, he is overwhelmed by mountains of bills and the daily strife of raising a family. But life is about to change. A Hollywood television producer wants Jonas to join his new survival series: Daredevils. For the next six weeks, two teams of crazy daredevils on a South Pacific Ocean voyage will try to outperform one another in front of the cameras. Jonas needs the money, and the job of doing the color commentary seems easy enough. But behind the scenes, someone else is pulling the strings. And before it's over, Jonas will again come face to face with the most dangerous creatures ever to stalk the Earth.
Eighteen years after a Megalodon shark escapes the Tanaka Lagoon to return to the Mariana Trench, struggling former adventurer Jonas Taylor is recruited to appear on a new survival series aboard a Spanish galleon replica, a job with unexpected deadly challenges. Reprint.

This was a fun book. It has bloody attacks, a misunderstood main character, romance, action, and a HUGE prehistoric shark- what more could you ask for from a shark attack book? You may think twice next time you dip your toes in the ocean.

A decimated population doesn’t necessarily equate to extinction.
Good God, man! That’s more than half the length of the Challenger. A creature that size… we’d need a bigger boat.
