4 out of 5 stars
Another fun-filled, deep sea adventure from Michael Cole
Thresher was fast-paced and exciting. I liked how we learned about what happened to the Thresher. I also liked that there was a little more science in the facts surrounding the Thresher’s disposition. My favorite part was that this had more action with the shark than the authors previous work. It made for a faster and more entertaining read!
Even though they were cliched, the characters were likable. Riker was a deeply flawed character but was one of those characters that you couldn’t help but root for. I enjoyed the dynamics between Riker and his new partner as well and enjoyed the interactions between them.
All-in-all, this was a good read. I’m not a fan of the open water, and this just made me respect my fear more. Sharks are beautiful creatures, but they are scary and deadly, and reading about the Thresher here just made them even scarier.
I’m delighted the author went with a different shark than a Great White or a Megalodon, it made for a far more interesting read. I’m hoping for a sequel because that ending left me with hopes of one! A fun, entertaining, and quick read!
Matt Godfrey made this an even more entertaining read. He allowed the story to flow quite nicely and took an already good book and made it better.

In the aftermath of a hurricane, a series of strange events plague the coastal waters off Florida. People go into the water and never return. Corpses of killer whales drift ashore, ravaged from enormous bite marks. A fishing trawler is found adrift, with a mysterious gash in its hull.
Transferred to the coastal town of Merit, police officer Leonard Riker uncovers the horrible reality of an enormous thresher shark lurking off the coast. Forty feet in length, it has taken a territorial claim to the waters near the town harbor. Armed with three-inch teeth, a scythe-like caudal fin, and unmatched aggression, the beast seeks to kill anything sharing the waters.
