Summary

In the aftermath of a hurricane, a series of strange events plague the coastal waters off Florida. People go into the water and never return. Corpses of killer whales drift ashore, ravaged from enormous bite marks. A fishing trawler is found adrift, with a mysterious gash in its hull.

Transferred to the coastal town of Merit, police officer Leonard Riker uncovers the horrible reality of an enormous thresher shark lurking off the coast. Forty feet in length, it has taken a territorial claim to the waters near the town harbor. Armed with three-inch teeth, a scythe-like caudal fin, and unmatched aggression, the beast seeks to kill anything sharing the waters.

Terrible narration

The story was mediocre at best.
The narration was some of the worst I've ever heard for a professionally recorded audio book. Especially the narrators attempt at women's voices.
Don't waste your time on this.

Perfect summer read (or listen!)

When a government project falls into the ocean and is consumed by a thresher shark, all hell breaks loose as the giant shark has to feed its giant appetite. With a similar set-up and cast as Jaws, Thresher takes us on an adventure that includes well-drawn characters and vivid descriptions. Definitely held my attention! I would listen to more by this author. Matt Godfrey did a fine job with the narration as well.

Outstanding character development.

I enjoyed this book a great deal. Character development very good. The narrator sounded like Clint Eastwood, which was great. A well done Dirty Harry clone.

Good book

I liked the book. It was not the greatest, but it kept my interest and I found myself cheereing for our heroes at the end. I gave 5 stars in each category. Not because it was fantastic, but because I want more from the writer. I see a good continuing storyline. Keep up the good work.

Hmm

The book showed signs of being good. But you can pretty much guess what will happen next not alot of surprises.
