Monsters are real.
Great White sharks lurk off popular beaches – killer crocodiles and man-eating pythons prowl the Everglades.
But for Abigail O’Neil, raised on the swamp, the most terrifying monster was her own father – a black-market croc-farmer notorious for feeding unwary victims to his jagged-toothed pets.
Growing-up privy to unspeakable horror, when Abigail finally fled home, she thought she’d left it all behind.
But now someone is stalking her – and they know all her deepest, darkest secrets.
There are always worse monsters – bigger sharks – larger crocodiles.
And there is always one more human-monster deadlier than the last.
Now Abigail must find the monster in herself.
Or she won’t survive the Apex Apocalypse.
