MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror (Meg)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Revised and expanded edition, soon to be a major motion picture! On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean's deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he's sure he saw but still can't prove exists - Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark. The average prehistoric Meg weighs in at twenty tons and could tear apart a Tyrannosaurus rex in seconds.
Written off as a crackpot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him his life. With a Ph.D. in paleontology under his belt, Taylor spends years theorizing, lecturing, and writing about the possibility that Meg still feeds at the deepest levels of the sea. But it takes an old friend in need to get him to return to the water, and a hotshot female submarine pilot to dare him back into a high-tech miniature sub.
Diving deeper than he ever has before, Taylor will face terror like he's never imagined, and what he finds could turn the tides bloody red until the end of time. MEG is about to surface. When she does, nothing and no one is going to be safe, and Jonas must face his greatest fear once again.

She looked up at him, almond eyes blazing. "No way. If anyone accompanies my brother into the trench, it will be me! Why is this so important to you anyway, Jonas?" Before he could answer, Masao called out. "Hey, I'm not babysitting here. You wanna see my lagoon, you keep up!" Terry glared at him. "This
does. Who really knows what life forms inhabit the unexplored Challenger Deep? For your information, the unmanned submersible, Kaiko, recently recorded schools of unidentified fish inhabiting the deep waters of the Mariana Trench. We also know giant squids, over sixty feet long, weighing close to two tons, inhabit the abyss. Surely these creatures would be adequate dining for a limited number of Megs. And what if other prehistoric species also managed to survive without our knowledge or
but I want you to stay on the story. Try to find out what the authorities are going to do to locate this other shark." "Maggie, they don't even know if it surfaced. The crew of the Kiku are swearing that it never left the trench, claiming the thing's still trapped down there." "Just do as I say. There's an extra thousand in it for you if you can get me some inside information from any reliable source about this second shark. I'll call you as soon as I land in Guam." "You're the boss." Maggie
through tomorrow. In a related story, twelve pilot whales and two dozen dolphins beached themselves along Saipan's northern shore. Unfortunately, most of the mammals died before rescuers could push them back out to sea. In other news..." Jonas turned off the volume on the TV. "Saipan. That's in the middle of the northern Marianas, isn't it?" "That's right, sir. Third island up the chain." Jonas looked away, thinking. "What is it, sir?" the MP asked. Jonas looked at him. "Nothing,"
know anything about..." "Dead humpback floating about two miles out. Cost you fifty American." "Fine, half now, half when we get back." Jonas held up the bills for Philippe's approval. "Okay, let's go." Jonas held out twenty-five dollars, then pulled back. "Just one thing. No motor on the way out." "Whatchu speaking 'bout dere, Dr. Jonas? You want me to row us out two mile? Nah, you keep you money..." "Okay, double. Half now, half when we get back." The islander looked Jonas up and down for
