YONKERS, N.Y. August 15, 2008. The gripping crime drama, Barracuda by Mike Monahan, is a modern-day Jaws drama, pitting a wounded cop on a paradise island against a deadly barracuda.

Ever since Jaws, people have been wondering how safe it is to go into the water. Now ex-cop Monahan's white-knuckle thriller Barracuda is about to make the beach an even more terrifying
place. Detective Mick O'Shaughnessy is relaxing in the scuba diver paradise of Bikini Atoll, when he finds himself involved in an international money laundering scheme, a territorial feud and an impending war between the Russian Mafia and the Japanese Yakuza. Added to this is a mutant barracuda who is snacking on tourists! Can he stop the crooks-and the fish?

Written in whip-smart prose, Barracuda is power-packed with authentic scuba diving knowledge, police procedure and historical detail about Bikini Atoll. Fast-paced and wildly entertaining, Barracuda is truly the catch of the day.
