Every summer the residents of Sunset Island are besieged by an ungodly plague – tourists. Ray Weller, known to most as The Captain, pilots the ferry that brings the very thing he hates to the shores of his beloved island. Ray loathes the tourists, detests his job and nickname, but will soon discover that Sunset Island is threatened by something far worse than tourists. Something lies beneath Sunset Island. Something ancient and long forgotten. Something man should never have woken from its slumber. As a hurricane cuts Sunset Island off from the mainland, residents and tourists alike, are trapped as the sea reclaims the island. Sharks, fleeing what has risen, swarm the flooded streets. The creature, starving from its long hibernation, swims towards Sunset. Now Ray must find a way to save the island he loves and maybe even a few of the people he hates.
