The Trench by Steve Alten [ 4 stars ]

From the Description:

It's appetite is ravenous. It's teeth, scalpel-sharp. For the first time, the captive twenty-ton Megalodon shark has tasted human blood, and it wants more....

On the other side of the world, in the silent depths of the ocean, lies the Marianas Trench, where the Megalodon has spawned since the dawn of time. Paleobiologist Jonas Taylor once dared to enter this perilous cavern. He alone faced a Megalodon shark and cut its heart out. Now, as the body count rises and the horror of a monster's attack grips the California coast, Jonas must begin the hunt again, and return to the dark terror of the trench...

Steve Alten has done it again with this tale of man vs. pre-historic shark! With a villain straight out of a Bond movie, and other deep sea creatures on top of the Megalodon, this book is a fast paced, super fun read. While not quite as good as Meg still worth your time! I'm giving it 4 stars.
