'"With a crack as though her back was breaking the dory lurched downwards. Christos felt himself twist, then fall inexorably, towards the head of the inquisitive shark."
'For his birthday, Christos takes his father's mackerel dory on his first solo trip. He plans to fish and then camp overnight on a local island. But things go terribly, terrifyingly wrong when Christos runs the dory aground on a reef, attracting a four-metre tiger shark as company for the most harrowing night of his life - a night during which he decides what he would be willing to die for.'
