I bought this book at a used bookstore, indulging my penchant for bad sea monsters stories. Expecting a bad but mindlessly entertaining read, I was quite pleasantly surprised to find it a well-crafted, intense thriller. The story, about an oil company seeking to exploit a new oil find under Loch Ness only to be stymied by the Loch's famous inhabitant, is well written and thoughly detailed. The characters were well developed and actually end up despising the bad guys, and rooting for the good guys. If I were the publisher, I'd re-release this book in a minute. If you like such thriller giants as Steven King and Dean Koontz, by all means, try this book. It's well worth the read, and a real gem.
