At the outset, the author claims to be an expert and without a doubt that is reflected in the content of the book. The author really knows all about sharks. Compound that knowledge with talent to write flowing prose & exciting storyline, makes this book so compelling, addictive and a candidate for best seller.
I loved reading this book from start to finish, with natural build-up of the story line to tense moments with characters, the book took me through peaks and troughs of emotions, almost at times forcing me to imaginatively urge the characters to 'hurry up and move along', hoping their fateful demise could be avoided. When a book can interact with its readers in such a way, then you know the book is a hit.
And if the fear of sharks wasn't enough, the author also throws in ghosts into the mix. Overall, I enjoyed every aspect of the book and recommend it highly.
If you remember the thrill, fear and excitement you got from watching 'Jaws' the movie, then you will love this book, as it is equally mind blowing.

FascinatingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 September 2013
This is one of the most interesting books I have ever read. Even though the writing style is unpolished the story itself is gripping from first to last. Moving, exciting, emotional and at times amusing. It is one of those rare works of fiction that made me wish it was true.
Interesting conceptReviewed in the United States on 26 March 2013
I wish the characters were a little more fleshed out but overall I liked the book. I dont believe in reincarnation but hey, to each his/her own.

What an extraordinary book.I read it twice and will probably read it again.The ending is intriguing.I loved the way the shark takes you on this amazing journey around the world, and how the ghost struggles to control him because he has his own agenda. I never knew the ocean could be so beautiful,and intimidating.

This was an extremely well written novel that I was not expecting. I am not one for ghosts but I thought the author did it well combining his marine knowledge with a vivid imagination. I look forward to a follow up if there is one coming
