Synopsis

Steve Alten's epic fish story continues in Hell's Aquarium, fourth of the MEG novels. The Tanaka Institute's captive Megalodon, Angel, has birthed a litter of pups. Two—Mary Kate and Ashley—are destined for a home in a massive new attraction being built in Dubai, but only if Jonas' son David agrees to serve as their trainer.

And why wouldn't he? For the brash young 20 year-old, it's an opportunity to strike out on his own and prove himself, applying the knowledge he's gained working alongside his father. Once in Dubai, however, the job proves very different from what was described back home, and here…there be dragons. The next generation of Taylor to take up the mantle of deep-ocean submersible pilot may be coming into its own much sooner than expected!
