After a fierce storm, a mysterious creature the size of a rhino has washed up, apparently dead, on the shores of Seal Cove, an isolated coastal town in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. The new discovery is later transferred to a large vacant pool located at the nearby defunct college where marine biologist Michael Keating hopes to decipher what it is. Later at night, the creature emerges from its dormant stage, transforming into something monstrous.
Filled with quirky local characters and a lanky, Goth book store owner, formally of New York City, the residents must rely on each other and their limited resources if they are to survive the raw October night and the flesh-eating predator that has made Seal Cove its hunting ground.

It’s 1974 and school’s out for 12-year-old Ryan Sullivan, only he won’t be spending it in his hometown of Madison Hill, Ohio. No playing baseball with friends, riding bikes, or going to Reds games at cookie-cutter Riverfront Stadium. Instead, he’ll be visiting his grandfather, Arthur ‘Artie’ Sullivan, on the island of Martha’s Vineyard for the whole summer.
And during his stay, Ryan will discover the joys of eating lobstah, snag a foul ball at a Red Sox game, survive not one, but two, great white shark attacks, and along with his grandfather, become hired extras in the movie, Jaws, which is being filmed on location. Ryan even meets a girl his age, Veronica, who not only likes baseball, but loves monster movies almost as much as he does.
Filled with humor, drama, and the flavor of Martha’s Vineyard, Summer of the Shark is a mid-seventies, nostalgic first-person account of Ryan’s iconic vacation and the two significant events that occurred one year later: his beloved Cincinnati Reds capturing the World Series over Artie’s Boston Red Sox in dramatic seventh-game fashion, and the debut of his favorite movie of all time, Jaws. Recollecting on his childhood, Ryan Sullivan concludes that 1975 to be his favorite year.
