Seven years ago, navy deep-sea pilot JONAS TAYLOR found himself on a top-secret dive in the Mariana Trench, the deepest, most unexplored realm in the ocean. Seven miles down he came face-to-face with the most fearsome predator ever to inhabit the planet–carcharodon Megalodon– the 70-foot 50,000 pound prehistoric cousin of the great white shark. Rushing his submersible topside, he barely escaped, but his actions cost the lives of the two scientists on-board the vessel, as well as his career, the Navy dismissing his claims as mere “aberrations of the deep.”

Jonas (now a paleobiologist) is still trying to prove to the world that the creatures exist, harbored in a warm-water current created by hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the gorge, trapped beneath six miles of freezing waters. On board the DAYANG YIHAO research vessel, which holds the deep-sea submersible record, it is Jonas' old friend at Zhang Institute Minway who gives Jonas his chance to go back into the Mariana Trench. With the help of Minway, his son DJ, an extreme sports enthusiast and experienced deep submersible diver, and his daughter Suyin, Jonas with his old friend Mac journey back into a world of the unknown, the Mariana Trench. Jonas is determined to prove to the world the MEG exists, which is why despite fear he takes the dive.

But man’s presence in this unexplored domain releases one of the 60ft SHARKS from its purgatory – a pregnant female – And then the planet’s apex predator of all time surfaces . . .

And then the planet’s apex predator of all time surfaces . . .

CREATIVE ARTISTS AGENCY REVIEW
This suspenseful, exciting and humorous search for “Nessie” is an entertaining, delightful read. There is just the right blend of action, character, mystery and, of course, monsters, to keep you on the edge of your seat. As much fun as any of Clive Cussler’s novels, The Loch is a great read for anyone looking for a thrill ride with heart. You may know where the story is going but the trip is a hoot. Like National Treasure, this story takes a couple of known legends – the Knights Templar and the Loch Ness Monster – and combines them in a really unique, imaginative way that feels like it could possibly be true. If for no other reason this makes it a great popcorn read.
The writer’s most winning talent is his characters. The setting is also stunning; from the beauty of the Scottish countryside, to the terrors of the black water to the underwater cavern, it’s always something new and different around the next bend. Even the opening sequences would be fascinating to watch.
Submitted for representation, this is definitely a book that is highly recommended. It’s practically already written to be a script and has outstanding potential to be a great action flick. For some folks the flaw to this book might be it’s very simple story line but it follows the same story type that worked for Jaws and countless other monster movies. It’s simple, it’s understandable, the characters are engaging – what more could you ask from a summer movie?

When the ghost of Robina begins to haunt Leeann, she realizes she's made a huge mistake .... "A rip roaring murderously good time," Tiffany Harkleroad of Tiffany's Bookshelf. 

REVIEWS:
Kathleen McKenna's explosive third novel 'The Wedding Gift' excels in so many categories it defies them all. It is a spine-electrifying supernatural tale where a huge Southern States mansion contains one of the most terrifying, violent and indeed psychopathic ghosts to haunt any town. It is also a murder mystery - why did Robina Willets apparently kill all five of her young children, and her husband, before stabbing herself to death? And, if you are in the camp of believing that 'justice .... just is not', then this will have you frothing at the mouth with righteous social fury. Add to that the vision of two exceptionally beautiful girls lying on a landing stage in the middle of a secluded lake, sleeping naked in the sun .... .... and then see if you can find any consecutive ten minutes in this book when you don't at least snicker at the heroine Leeann's sly, caustic, sometimes-knowing sometimes 'too stupid to live' commentary. "Several times in the 'The Wedding Gift' Kathleen McKenna has the narrator bursting out with phrases like 'Oh shoot, hell yeah, he was grinning like an egg suck dog' or words to that affect. Well, that was me she was describing throughout the book, grinning like an egg suck dog. I don't know what one of those might be, but I sure want to be one. " Tim Roux, author of 'Missio' and 'The Dance of the Pheasodile'
