Book Review: ‘Shark Beach’ May Have You Think Twice Before Going Into The Ocean

by | May 15, 2019 | Books | 0 comments

Lets face it no one wants to be around a shark. They say they are not usually aggressive but still. In the new novel by Chris Jameson that is put to the test in a big way.

Two families head to Florida’s Captiva Island for spring break on the beach. Not everyone will return. A major hurricane is headed up and the track is not sure yet where it will hit. Preparations are being made and people are told to leave. When an accident happens and the only bridge out of town is crashed into most people are going to have to stay.

Meanwhile in another part of town a secret marine institute is doing research on animals for the government. Part of it is on sharks where they are making them aggressive. One of the security guards is fed up with this and had plans of his own. The night of the hurricane he decides to do something about it. He lets them out and the hurricane destroys a wall that release the sharks out into the water. There are 32 of them and they mean business.

The next day after the hurricane the big cleanup starts. When the Sheriff is summoned to the institute he’s told about the sharks but not before people are being killed by the aggressive animals. Since no one is aware of it people are going on the water. They soon learn there are sharks and have to fight for their lives and a I said above some will not make it.

This is author Chris Jameson’s third shark book (my first time reading one). If you’re a fan of Jaws and Sharknado you will love this book and his other ones. Nothing is better than a killer shark novel. Perfect summer reading for sitting on near the water (and it might make you think twice before going in).

You can pick up the book in stores on Tuesday, May 28th from St. Martin’s Press.
