Book Summary

Peter Benchley's masterful novel of suspense has become a classic of modern fiction since it was first published in 1974. The story of the great white shark that threatens the peace of the small holiday resort of Amity on Long Island in upstate New York spawned one of the most iconic movies of the last 50 years and became a bestseller around the world.

The simple, but gruesome opening of the young girl being attacked while swimming by a shark only for her remains to turn up as the tide recedes begins a powerful story which examines the many simmering emotions that lie beneath the seemingly cosy face of the town and the relationships of the men and women affected by the threat to their livelihoods and their families. The novel spawned a number of copycats, but Benchley's novel has never been surpassed.
