Fangtooth by Shaun Jeffrey [ 4 stars ]



From the Description:

After the death of his wife, Bruce Holden moves to the quaint coastal fishing village of Mulberry with his son, Jack. He is hoping for a fresh start, but the locals greet their arrival with mixed reactions, from friendliness to open hostility. Bruce puts it down to them being outsiders, but when a tourist is killed while swimming, the real horror is unleashed. There's something ravenous in the sea. Something that's coming ashore in search of prey. Now Bruce and Jack find themselves embroiled in a nightmare where humankind is no longer at the top of the food chain. First there was the Creature From The Black Lagoon… Then there was Jaws… Prepare yourself for Fangtooth.

This book had been on my wish list forever, so when I saw the request for reviews I jumped at the chance! I am so glad that I did! Creatures from the deep meet Lovecraft. The Fangtooth are a great addition to the sea monster genre (the real thing is scary looking, but these guys are on steroids!). I hope this is just the start, I can't wait to see what else Shaun Jeffrey has to offer. A fast paced, fun read that leaves you wanting more., 4 stars.
