This wasn't a bad book, but to be honest I had a bit of trouble getting into it for the first quarter. Maybe it's because I started here on the second book.

Once going however it's a good tale that although at times a little absurd (surviving a fall with no parachute due to sheer luck) it comes across as blessedly lucky as opposed to cheesy action.

The pace quickens for the final quarter and it becomes hard to put down as it moves from investigation to action.

All in all, a good military police/investigation novel, although might be worth starting from #1. ( )

While working on a top-secret research program for the US Department of Defense in the freezing waters off Japan, a leading scientist turns up dead, eaten by a monster shark.

The problem, Cooper has to jump alongside a soldier he suspects is a killer.
