Mira Grant's chilling oceanic thriller follows a crew of scientists, filmmakers, and big game hunters on a voyage to answer two questions: Are mermaids real, and what happened to the ship ATARGATIS, lost at sea? Narrator Christine Lakin uses varied pacing to balance the backstory against the escalating violence, capturing the thrill of discovery as well as the tension of mounting peril. Grant's prose is richly detailed and disturbingly vivid, and Lakin's urgent tone embraces her writing with enthusiasm. Grant's cast is large and diverse, and Lakin's characterizations aid listeners in keeping pace with the experiences of the intrepid explorers, eager filmmakers, and bloodthirsty hunters on the traveling research vessel.
