An ancient predator has been reborn in the caves beneath Crater Lake…and it’s hungry.

Ex-cop Henry Shore has been Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake National Park for eight years and he likes his park and his life the way it’s been. Safe. Tranquil. Predictable. But he’s about to be tested in so many ways. First the earthquakes begin…people begin to go missing…then there’s some mysterious water creature that’s taken up residence in the caves below Crater Lake and it’s not only growing in size, it’s aggressive and cunning…and very hungry.
And it’s decided it likes human beings. To eat.
And it can come up onto land.
So Henry, with the help of his wife, Ann; a young paleontologist named Justin; and a band of brave men must not only protect his park and his people from the monster but somehow find where it lives and destroy it…before it can kill again.

Dinosaur LakeBecome a Park Ranger, he thought. After the stress of being a cop, it would be peaceful, tranquil and the scenery would be breathtaking, he thought. Henry Shore is about to discover that even in the beauty of nature, there are monsters in the shadows with an appetite for death and not even his service revolver can keep humanity safe.

Crater Lake’s crystalline depths were made from the eruptions of ancient volcanoes and earthquakes and it would now give birth to a prehistoric monster freed from its confines by yet another trembling of the earth. Little did Henry know the nightmares he faced in the city would pale in comparison to the behemoth that lurks in the dark, or that it would feast on the flesh and bones of humans and fauna alike.

An unlikely group of heroes will risk everything to save humanity, some will die horrible deaths along with the innocents and the clearly too stupid to live, but no one will ever forget what happened in DINOSAUR LAKE.

Are you a fan of man versus the unbelievable? Want the thrill of the ground shaking as death comes out of the depths? We aren’t talking those old movie monsters like Godzilla or Yongary, the monster from the deep, they were make believe, but dinosaurs were very real and who is to say one egg isn’t trapped in the bowels of the earth just waiting to hatch? Hmmm?

Kathryn Meyer Griffith brings readers to the edge of their science fiction seats and spares nothing as this dinosaur devours humans, uproots trees and appears to have more cunning and smarts than paleontologists give them credit for! Better than a movie, my mind was racing as I watched normal, everyday people stand against a seemingly unstoppable foe! Gah! They even went into the caves they thought it lived in!

Go ahead, indulge your thrill-seeking side, shake your head at the gawkers, the by-line seekers and the next time you can’t see to the bottom of a body of water…remember DINOSAUR LAKE.
