Flesh Ripper: 

Angler Jeremy Wade is on the trail of a mysterious creature described over two hundred years ago by a famous explorer. Is the eight-foot beast in question a mere legend, or could it be the same, flesh-and-blood creature that has attacked divers and even seized a child? 

New Zealand is meant to be a safe place for swimmers, yet as Jeremy finds out, its remote rivers and deep lakes provide refuge for an ancient and slippery predator that can stay hidden for more than a century. To flush one out, he must put himself on the menu.
