Recensioner i media
"Natural history, animal behavior, American history, and pure detective work. The research and sourcing are monumental...makes a fine summer beach read." -- Chicago Tribune "Twelve Days of Terror is better (than Close to the Shore) at conveying the historical context framing the (shark) attacks. Fernicola is (also) better with the attacks in Matawan Creek.--Baltimore Sun Has the edge over "Close to Shore" by being better-sourced and packed with photographs, diagrams, newspaper clippings, and death certificates. -- Boston Globe "Blood in the water, terror on the shore. What could make for a better beach book?" -USA Today "Immersed in the details of these attacks, but . . . also move[s] to the shore to reconstruct the culture of fear that swelled up in pre-war America." -Christian Science Monitor "Packed with photographs, diagrams, newspaper clippings, and death certificates." -Boston Globe "Truly chilling without being sensational." -Library Journal
