Shrimpers and fishermen, with nothing to catch, watch their vessels rot in the stagnant brine. And then a gigantic sea creature, long believed extinct, washes ashore. But during the struggle to profit from this find, a menacing hurricane looms offshore. Download and start listening now!

    " this was a slower read. not because it wasn't engaging (it was) but the way it's written is more like a long character study than a novel. there is no real plot that i can come up with - it's just about life in this small town and t he aftermath of a dramatic storm. liked it. "

    " After reading the reviews, I expected this to be funnier and faster. An ok listen, but nothing special. "

    " Lovely and carefully paced. Although it focuses mainly on the struggle of youth in a decaying town, all characters--retired "snowbird" tourists to ex-Soviet entrepeneur--are rich and fully realized. "

    " An interesting story, but I never really understood what the strange fish had to do with anything. "
