A novel by

 
 
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. There is something terrible living beneath the dark waters of Lake Kaarme and it is 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.

"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, author, Island 731

"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, Into the Mist

"Primordial proved to be one of the best, the most thoroughly delightful and satisfying, books that I've read in quite some time. A serious out-of-the-park type of home run hit." - Christine Morgan, The Horror Fiction Review

Genre: Thriller
