Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, the legends are true.
When eccentric billionaire Ellis Holloway hires renegade marine biologist Sam Aston to investigate the legend of a monster in a remote Finnish lake, Aston envisions an easy paycheck and a chance to clear his gambling debts. But he gets much more. There is something terrible living beneath the dark waters of Lake Kaarme and it is hungry.
As the death toll mounts, Aston faces superstitious locals, a power-hungry police chief, and a benefactor's descent into madness as he races to find the legendary beast of the lake.

A brilliant creature-feature thriller - Cool!

The book begins at a good pace giving us some information and backstory on the characters. I really like the characters in it. From the TV host that's interesting and not just animal fodder to Sam who is a tad roguish to our rather eccentric billionaire funding it all they are all solid characters.

It's a thrilling ride! It seems plausible which I like. It's also not just about the monster/animal. We see and hear things from the village to question whether the creature is living there through it's own choice.

It leaves you wanting more. It's certainly a book I could (and will) listen too again. It ends well but with enough questions that make you want a sequel and gives you scope for one!

Also really great narration. A voice that you can listen too and that sweeps you along with the pace of the book.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Jurassic Park meets Indiana Jones

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a fun listen which moved along at a fair pace. There was very little down time or backstory and it moved briskly from action scene to action scene. There are some fun, if predicable, characters and well detailed locations.

The narration is generally pretty good with only a few dubious accents.

Some of the writing is fairly cliched and basic, the characters are fairly shallow but the premise was interesting and enough to carry it through to the end.

For a short, entertaining listen I'd recommend this book.
