Close to Shore: A True Story of Terror in An Age of Innocence



This breathtaking novel details the summer of 1916 when America’s most brutal shark attack occurred along the Jersey Shore. Too close to home for some, this terrifying event in Jersey history is a story every resident and local must read.



This riveting narrative discusses historical details of the true event along the New Jersey coast. Local residents spent 12 days in fear after a rogue Great White shark terrorized swimmers along the Jersey shore. Occurring just before the United States joined World War I, beach swimming had just become a luxury many were not used to when this chaotic event took place. Not native to shallow waters, this Great White shocked millions in the most brutal shark attack in American history. This saga recounts the horrifying feelings of its time with heightened drama and compelling prose. Close to Shore uses detailed research to make this incredible story the most true yet.
