Eight years ago, on a rainy night in November, Evan Barrett's parents were lost at sea as a panicked Evan listened to their frantic Mayday calls on a ship-to-shore radio. There was no way to save them, no way to explain the deafening shrieks behind his mother's cries for mercy. Now, Evan has returned to his home in West Hook to search for answers to his parents' disappearance. Were they swallowed up by The She, the angry she-devil of legend that devours ships off the New Jersey coast? Or was it something else? Something more tangible but equally unthinkable?
