Alright people … these sharks are thinking … hard & clear … so here’s the riddle what does an 8000 pound mako shark with a brain the size of a flathead V8 engine & no natural predators think about?

— Russell Franklin

For five years the secrets of Aquatica have remained hidden, consigned to the depths. For five years Carter Blake and Sherman ‘Preacher’ Dudley have rebuilt their world after the disaster that nearly claimed their lives.

That’s the answer to the riddle. Because that’s what an eight thousand pound mako thinks about. About freedom. About the deep blue sea.

— Carter Blake

Dr. Susan McCallister’s dream – an Alzheimer’s cure harvested from the brain of genetically engineered Mako sharks – long thought dead, is about to rise from the deep. Lawyers from Chimera Pharmaceuticals are pressing charges in the wake of a successful hostile take-over bid by German investors. Meanwhile, a covert skunk-works team has reactivated McCallister’s research beginning with some old Aquatica offsite data backups and positively ancient breeding stock.

There’s always a bigger fish
