Sometimes, the legends are true.When eccentric billionaire, Ellis Holloway, hires renegade marine biologist, Sam Aston, to investigate the legend of a monster in a remote Finnish lake, Aston envisions an easy paycheck and a chance to clear his gambling debts. But he gets much more. Something terrible lives beneath the dark waters of Lake Kaarme, and it’s hungry. As the death toll mounts, Aston faces superstitious locals, a power-hungry police chief, and a benefactor’s descent into madness as he races to find the legendary beast of the lake.
Praise for Primordial!
“PRIMORDIAL has everything you’d want from a monster story—great characters, a remote location and a creature with bite! Mixing history and lore with science and action, David Wood and Alan Baxter have penned a thriller that is hard to put down.” — Jeremy Robinson, international bestselling author of Apocalypse Machine and Project Nemesis
“Bone-cracking terror from the stygian depths, Primordial explodes off the page. Taking an ancient lake monster, a small town shrouded in secrets, and a megalomaniac billionaire determined to get his own way, Wood and Baxter push the boat out to give us a creature thriller that is both intelligent and visceral. I could hear the Jaws soundtrack playing on repeat, although that might have been my heart pounding. PRIMORDIAL is the catch of the day!” Lee Murray, author of Into the Mist
