From Canada’s waterlogged wilderness come almost unbelievable stories of a twenty-foot lake monster that attacks humans.
 
These remote backwaters are far too cold and cut-off for either snakes or freshwater sharks, and giant sturgeon are likewise off the suspect list. So what could explain the surprisingly widespread accounts of a large, aggressive beast that rears its reptilian head above the surface?
 
For freshwater detective Jeremy Wade, investigation turns into obsession as he tries to track down a shadowy predator with a mouth like a bear-trap.
 
With every failed attempt to catch it pushing him a step closer to insanity, something has to give.
