In Steve Alten’s New York Times bestselling MEG series–the basis for the feature film The Meg, starring Jason Statham–deep sea diver and paleontologist Jonas Taylor discovers a species long thought extinct. Megalodons are prehistoric predators that resemble great white sharks, but are as big as Tyrannosaurus Rexes. Reintroduced to the 21st century ecosystem, the creatures wreak havoc with wildlife and mankind, even as the latter attempts to kill, contain, or control the monstrous leviathans.
