Two years after his wife's death, oceanographer and former navy SEAL, Atticus Young, attempts to reconcile with his rebellious daughter, Giona, by taking her on the scuba dive of a lifetime-swimming with a pod of peaceful humpback whales in the Gulf of Maine. But the beauty of the sea belies a terror from the deep-a horrific creature as immense as it is ancient. There is no blood, no scream, no fight. Giona is swallowed whole by the massive jaws. Only Atticus remains to suffer the shame of the survivor and his inconsolable grief turns to an unquenchable thirst for revenge. Drawn by the spectacle, Trevor Manfred, a ruthless billionaire, approaches Atticus with a proposition: Trevor will make available all the advanced technology of his heavily armed mega-yacht, the Titan, to aid Atticus in his death-quest. In return, Trevor is to receive the beast's corpse as the ultimate hunting trophy. But in the midst of the hunt, Atticus makes a terrifying discovery that changes the way he sees the ocean's creatures and begs the question: what is Kronos? The answer sets him on a new and much more deadly course.

Kronos is awesome, this podcast audiobook is AWESOMER!
Ok, I admit it- I'm a fan- I've got the book, I've got the iPhone App and I'm now following along in the podcast format. All three have their own merits- but I'm really enjoying being "told" the story of Atticus, Trevor Manfred and the sea monster- it really gets my blood pumping, the narrator is awesome!! Plus I get to enjoy the story while doing chores, driving, etc. Thanks for putting out this podcast, highly recommended!
