Beyond the sparkling Hawaiian beaches, masked by the deceptive beauty of the rainforest, evil awaits sixteen-year-old Michael Sundquist and his mother, Katharine, an anthropologist who has come to the Islands to study the unusual skeletal remains unearthed on the volcanic flanks of Haleakala, Maui.

Yet far below the black depths of the Pacific a mysterious substance snakes through undiscovered fissures in the ocean floor, as nature itself seems to portend the terror to come.

OMG, it was so great to read such a 'hard-to-put-down' book again! It has been a long time since I've had the pleasure of reading a really intense thriller,but John Saul's~ The Presence,was a great one.I don't know why I haven't read more by him since I remember really liking 'Nathaniel' years ago. I will definitely be reading more of his work for a while. This book captured my interest from the beginning,and the suspense got intense very early on. It is a great unique storyline,plus I really enjoyed all the descriptions of Hawaii.This book really put me into the scene,and the characters are very well developed as well.I really cared about them. Highly recommend this one.

Maybe fun for people who haven't read other of Saul's books, but for those used to his writing, this was simply another story repeating almost the same plot but just with a different cause for it
