Taylor Mali's narration begins quietly, like a shark patrolling ocean currents. Mali describes the confident 1916 East Coasters who ride to beaches on the newly established railroad lines. At the same time, he tells of the growth of a rogue Great White shark. In a string of parallel narrations, Mali imagines the journey of the shark and describes the human misperceptions of the first attacks. When the shark attacks mount, so does Mali's reading strength, and it becomes almost frenzied as man's fury and fear increase. Quotes from sensational news reports and eyewitnesses are full of emotions that turn truth into narrative drama. Horrifying details of shark assaults will captivate young audio listeners who won't soon forget this "piscine serial killer" and its prey.
