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. ***

Meet the Author

Kathryn Meyer Griffith...
Since childhood I've always been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. Though I'd already begun writing novels at 21, over forty years ago now, and have had eighteen (ten romantic horror, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance and three murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press and Amazon Kindle Direct.
I've been married to Russell for almost thirty-five years; have a son, James, and two grandchildren, Joshua and Caitlyn, and live in a small quaint town in Illinois called Columbia, which is right across the Jefferson Barracks Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have three quirky cats, ghost cat Sasha, live cats Cleo and Sasha (Too), and the five of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I've been an artist, and a folk singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I'll probably write stories until the day I die...or until my memory goes.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    Bravo to Ms. Griffith on another engaging story. She has a way of writing such well-rounded characters that you find your own place in her stories delving into the action along with those characters. Although I have never been to Crater Lake I found that I wanted to go with the descriptions of said lake and the surrounding area.

    Henry and his wife Ann moved to Crater Lake from New York where Henry had become stressed with his job as a New York City cop. With the drugs, dilapidated neighborhoods, gangs, shootings and total lack of caring by people. He loved the peacefulness of nature and felt this was as close to heaven as he could get. Ann was a serene person with a gentle nature about her that gave one a calming effect saying that everything was going to be alright.

    For the last eight years Henry and Ann Shore have enjoyed a very peaceful existence living in Crater Lake National Park, where Henry is the Park Ranger. Henry enjoyed his job. He would much rather be outside giving tours then stuck in an office behind a desk. He was laid back and easy going by nature. Being in the outdoors, changes a person’s outlook on life in general.

    While guiding a tour of people an earth tremor uncovered some bones. Not wanting to say much he got the group back on track and headed to their campsites. Deep down, as a lover of dinosaurs, Henry secretly hoped that they had unearthed dinosaur bones. Not realizing or even faintly aware of what lay ahead of them. George one of Henry’s rangers who is half Indian, also found bones along with rather large tracks.

    Bones, tracks, weird disappearances of humans and animals; earthquakes and tremors, could there really be a dinosaur living under Crater Lake? The tragic disappearances of people at a National Park, the mysterious creature that live in the caves, the frequency of earthquakes all add up to one hell of a story.

    Justin a young paleontologist confirms what Henry believed to be dinosaur bones. But he has no idea as to what species they are. I wanted to go find this dinosaur/creature/monster and somehow see it for myself.

    The once peaceful park soon turns to a sinister place. The dinosaur/creature/monster soon shows that she isn’t any dumb creature but rather smart, eluding the rangers and scientists as she leaves clues of devastation in her path. The game changes as she comes out of the lake onto land.

    The realistic nature of the monster and the characters brings realism to this story that makes you rethink the possibility of creatures living beneath the earth just waiting to be awakened at some point in time. With the rethinking comes the possibility that my beloved ‘Nessie” the Loch Ness Monster could actually be real.

    As I aided in the adventure of Dinosaur Lake I am sure that you too will enjoy this mysterious story as you read it to unlock the secrets of Crater Lake along with Henry and Ann Shore, Justin and all the others that were involved.

    A much recommended read for anyone that enjoys a good mystery full of suspense, great storyline with a touch of realism.
