Excerpt:
“Seconds before the twenty-five-foot swell reached the surfer, the Megalodon's nine-foot maw rose from the dark sea beneath him, engulfing Barnes and his surfboard and lifting both twenty feet into the air. As the wave crashed into its exposed girth, the monster slammed its mouth on surfer and board like a steel bear trap, exerting more than 40,000 pounds per square inch of brute force. Blood and froth shot upward as the Meg shook its head back and forth instinctively, shredding the remains of the carcass still dangling from its jaws, sending chunks of pink flesh and fiberglass cascading outward in a thousand directions. Then it was gone.”
