Edward Ricciuti, a science writer with a passion for scuba diving and oceanographic expeditions, has swum eye-to-eye with a killer whale, flippered around with dolphins, tagged and captured sharks, and had numerous tense exchanges with barracuda, moray eels, and stingrays.Supplementing his own experiences with interviews that feature scores of the worlds leading marine biologists, Ricciuti explores the latest research and the lingering legends of oceanic and freshwater predators.

He writes about sharks and shark attacks and of the little-known horned goblin shark- of the incredibly venomous Japanese puffer fish (fugu when cooked)- of the increasingly ominous migrations of Pacific sea snakes through the Panama Canal- of the aquatic Borgia, the tiny blue-ringed octopus that can kill a man in seconds- and of the monsters of the seas--legendary, prehistoric, and possibly still alive and well, according to reputable scientific reports--all found in the ocean depths today.

KILLERS OF THE SEAS also includes the fascinating evolutionary and environmental factors that make these creatures behave as they do.
