Meg: Primal Waters (2004)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Meg: Primal Waters (2004) Author Steve Alten's third Meg book manages to be as good a read as the first two Megalodon books, this time presenting not one but three of the giant behemoths.It's eighteen years after the events of THE TRENCH and Jonas Taylor and wife Terry now have two kids, an eighteen-year-old daughter and fourteen year old son. They are also deeply in debt because they refuse to give up the Tanaka Oceanographic Institute that was constructed to showcase a captured Megalodon shark.Just when they need the money a Hollywood producer contacts Jonas and asks him to be a commentator on the Reality television show DAREDEVILS, which shows people doing death-defying stunts. This time the Daredevils and crew will be videotaped on a replica of an old pirate ship. Jonas' daughter, Dani, accompanies him-and soon becomes romantically involved with one of the Daredevils. This gives Jonas more gray hairs, to say the least. As the shooting progresses and weeks go by there are signs that a giant shark is in the nearby waters. In fact, it kills a few of the daredevils. The risks become higher and the situation more dangerous. Jonas also finds out that the man responsible for hiring him on the show is a character from his past who wants revenge-and that this person is able to coerce the shark to surface with an electronic device. He wants Jonas dead-and it doesn't matter if everyone else dies in the processWhile this television show is happening Jona's wife Terry is asked to fly up to investigate hundreds of whale beachings in Canada. And a few of the carcasses have these giant bites in them. Terry finds an embedded Megalodon tooth in one of them. Has Angel, the giant shark they had captured nearly twenty years before, returned? She and a colleague get the idea that they should capture the shark and take it back to the Institute for show.Back at home, David, their son, is trying to repair the massive doors that lead into the constructed lagoon at the Tanaka Oceanographic Institute. And, as luck would have it, a giant Megalodon appears-and this one is definitely Angel, who is familiar with the area of its birth and has returned, presumably, to reproduce. But if this is Angel why are there two other giant sharks appearing at the same time?
PRIMAL WATERS builds upon the characters that the author had established, taking them in different directions than expected. The story also remains interesting, so much so that I'm eagerly awaiting the FOURTH Meg book.For more information on Steve Alten and the MEG books go to www.SteveAlten.com
